About Me

I am a self-taught perfumer and spent several years exploring and studying perfumery. I use both natural and synthetic materials.

I was born and raised in India. I developed a keen nose for scents and a deep connection with fragrances very early on.

One of my earliest memories is being around my grandmother. She owned a small block of real Mysore Sandalwood. For special ceremonies, she'd give me the very important task of making Sandalwood paste.

I would grind that precious block of wood on a sahan―a special stone meant for just this purpose.

For days afterwards my fingers would stay perfumed. My soul is forever imbued with the divine scent of Sandalwood.
