Perfume : Roh-e-Lucknow (soul of Lucknow) by Tornos
A rare blend of Itar (oil based perfume made of natural herbal extracts) crafted by team Tornos, especially for its Silver Jubilee Celebration. This perfume has been made in Kannuaj that prides itself as the perfume capital of India and produces essential oils in traditional manner..
Enjoy the welcome scent crafted after carefully selecting, extracting and mixing essential oils primarily from Rose (special local variety called Roh Gulaab) Sandalwood, Vetiver, Lavender, Bergamot and Cedarwood. This scent is quite a contrast to the usual ‘Itar’, that often smells of flowers, roots, leaves, barks, stems, vegetables, fruits, spices and even mud at times. This one blends all of that so delicately, denoting the soul of Lucknow, that lies in its blend of social fabric, secular culture, tolerance and coexistence of traditional and modern times.
