Penhaligon ‘s – Vaara – EdP
It all started with the request of Maharaja Gaj Singh II to create a personal fragrance for him, which should express his deep love and affinity to Jodhpur. Jodhpur is the second largest city in the western Indian state of Rajasthan.
Master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour took on this task … he traveled Jodhpur, explored the life of a Maharaja and visited the historic forts , palaces, exotic gardens and markets of the city. The impressive wealth of impressions and inspirations that Bertrand Duchaufour experienced during these explorations of one of the most fascinating parts of India, he captured in a unique Eau de Parfum. It was named after the granddaughter of the Maharaja: Vaara …
The fragrance starts with a delicious blend of coriander and carrot seed , creamy saffron and juicy quince – ingredients that Bertrand Duchaufour discovered at his strolls through the markets of the city of Jodhpur.
His stroll continues with the gardens of Balsamand: In the floral heart note they are blooming with two delicious roses (Bulgarian and Moroccan Rose), White Indian Magnolia and a hint of Freesia and Iris.
In the opulent fragrance base, Vaara once again unfolds its poetic magic: It combines sweet honey and white musk accentuated by rich resins and an aromatic blend of tonka bean, cedar and sandalwood…
Vaara is the fragrance for a Maharajah: Majestic as well as modern, atmospherically intense and full of charm.
