    Default Indian fragrance houses?

    Do they exist for niche or, at least, quality perfumes?
    I'd expect more 'Made in India' in the future, but haven't found any, yet..

    Presumably, the good oils are sold to wealthy Arabian.

    I once bought in an Indian store an oil by a brand Khaleeji called Mukhallat Al Salaam, which sounds arabian, but below it says manufactured in India. In any case, it's a synthetic oud that's not bad, especially given how cheap it was. I love the ingredient list: synthetic essential oils, natural essential oil, synthetic aroma chemical.

    I only knew of & used pure oils or attars made locally while I was still in India (this is back in 2000). Didn't know of any good parfum / cologne that could cater to a wider population except the regular body sprays.

    I do see huge potential - as natural oud, sandalwood, vetiver, other woods & spices are very easily available...Technology is obviously there & the creativity is without a doubt present too...Wouldn't be surprised if a good few brands already have made a mark within the country.

    Hedonist222 - know of any commercial / designer parfum brand that came by your country from my former country?

    It would be interesting to hear more about this subject, badarun.
    John Steele produces attars out there.

    I think that's only the case (mostly) for agarwood. The best sandalwood, Indians use themselves. That's obvious with the ban on exporting this.The special attars, such as jasmine distilled in sandalwood are used mostly in chewing tobacco or desserts.

    I wasn't about attars and oils though actually. Fragrance houses that blend everything themselves and make classic French/ western style fragrances such as Montale, something like that.

    I've been in Canada for the last 9 yrs, and 3 yrs in usa; so I really have no clue what's available out there with rgds to "western type" parfums... My family already knows abt my hobby and my 300+bottles and thinks me is crazy; I don't even want to ask anyone what's out there...

    Glad this OP posted this thread.

    It would be interesting to hear what's going on from someone out there - with those resources & traditions it seems an obvious area for someone to move into.

    Actually, if we move this thread to General it may result in more replies.
