- Ittar, also known as attar, is an essential oil derived from botanical sources. Most commonly these oils are extracted via hydro or steam distillation. They can also be expressed by chemical means but generally natural perfumes which qualify as ittars are distilled with water
- Attars are the world’s oldest perfumes, incredibly concentrated elixirs extracted from the juices of flowers, spices, and barks. They can contain anything from hundreds of ingredients to a simple, single note, sometimes distilled over years.
- While they’ve remained popular in India and the Middle East, attars had fallen out of favor among mainstream Western perfumeries, only to be found in niche, "natural" perfume boutiques, and among those allergic to the synthetic bases used in most modern perfumes. But recently there’s been a resurgence in the popularity of this type of fragrance.
