If you’re seeking a sensual, as well as a spiritual experience in a bottle of perfume, look no further than Isvaraya, the “divine” fragrance from Indult.
With references to the sacred plants of Hinduism, aka patchouli and plum tree, and the cultural symbols of India’s landscape, aka jasmine sambac, with its lush, almost nectarous quality, Isvaraya is a velvety, mysterious scent that creates that precarious balance between erotic turmoil and inner peace.
Plummy patchouli - divested of its earthier, hippier proclivities- sweet and botanical like a rained upon garden after the monsoon, hereby dresses plummy notes and the intoxicating nightly emissions of fruity jasmine. This heady blend creates a contemporary composition that would attract lovers of Chanel’s famed Coco Mademoiselle, yet leave them breathless all the same with the spicy gorgeousness just witnessed.
The secret chord? A wisp of a smoky garland that rises in the air as the fragrance dries on the skin. It makes for a Zen tranquillity lacking in most commercial fragrances focusing on patchouli. The smokiness, dry and powdery, even with a whiff of leather goods built in, is what gives Isvaraya its depth and meaning.
