Neela Vermeire Creations tribute to India

Neela Vermeire Creations is a newly introduced Paris perfumery niche in the world. As a perfume connoisseur, Neela had a keen awareness of the difference good natural raw materials can make. She began her work with perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour by giving him free rein to use a costly palette of attars and resins that would do justice to the sensual splendors of India.

Neela Vermeire started to explore the roots, traditions and the history of India through three wonderful perfumes like: Mohul, Trayee and Bombay Bling. Neela Vermeire created the trio perfumes in the memory of her native country India and the appreciation for its values. The result?

The three initial perfumes are a tribute to three different eras of Indian history spanning thousands of years, fast forwarding from the spiritual tranquility of ancient India to the cultural and architectural splendors of courtly life during the Moghul era and the British occupation, finishing with the chaos and dynamism of modern India illustrated by the maximum city of Mumbai (Bombay).

Mohur

mohur

Known as Mehrunissa, the most powerful Empress of the Mughal dynasty, Noor Jahan was the favorite wife of Emperor Jehangir. She was the true power behind the throne while her husband lived, so much so that after his death her male relatives had her sequestered (in comfort!) for the rest of her life. In her confinement, she devoted herself to the art of perfumery as it had been passed down from her mother.

Mohur is a rose-based fragrance, a combination of opulent moghul rose perfumes and a distinguished spicy leather bouquet that can only be imagined during a high tea after a polo match. To capture this moment, Mohur has been created as a refined rose-oudh alliance that pays tribute to Noor Jahan’s power and talent. It exemplifies the nearly 500-year span of India’s history that was shaped by a succession of influences from the outside world…

Mohur features alluring and arresting notes of carrot, ambrette, cardamom, black pepper, coriander, elemi, rose, jasmine, orris, aubepin flower, almond milk, violet, leather, sandalwood, amber, white woods, patchouli, Oudh, benzoin, vanilla and Tonka bean.

Trayee

trayee

The Vedic tradition suggests that Wisdom is eternal. It exists within the eternal fabric of consciousness itself and is uncreated. It is the essence of India, the beginning of the journey. It is a eulogy, a hymn to the idea of India, an act of deepest reverence for the traditions of the mother country. The divine origin of the first three Vedas – Rig, Yajur and Sama – suggested the name of the perfume: Trayee (pronounced ‘try-ee’, meaning ‘the triad’).

Trayee is a complex fragrance that represents the boundless spiritual landscape of the great Vedic period, which started many centuries ago: its intricate rituals and temple ceremonies, ayurveda, the universe of yoga and the holistic quest for knowledge….

Trayee blends sensual notes of cinnamon, ginger, elemi, blackcurrant, ganja effects, basil, jasmine, cardamom, clove, saffron, sandalwood, vetiver, incense, sandalwood, patchouli, myrrh, vanilla, cedar, amber, oud and oak moss.

Bombay Bling

This joyful creation embodies every aspect of the very modern, colourful, eclectic, esoteric, ecstatic, liberal, happy side of buzzing India, a world economic power, where nothing is to be taken for granted, where the underbelly of the big city combines with the glitter of Bollywood on the vast sandy stretches of Juhu Beach and the Queen’s Necklace. Fortunes are made and lost on the Bombay stock exchange and gambling dens of Mumbai. Abandon yourself to the nightlife as dawn breaks over the city. There is nothing like it and there will be nothing like it. Welcome to a vibrant new India!

Bombay Bling opens with fruity notes of blackcurrant and mango and calms with radiating notes of cumin, blackcurrant, lychee, cardamom, cistus, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, white floral accord, tuberose, frangipani, gardenia, patchouli, tobacco, white woods, sandalwood, cedar and vanilla.
