Vaara, A Fragrance Fit for a Maharaja

The Maharaja’s granddaughter is born into luxury. Succulent quince, fragrant roses, and wood warmed by the midday sun. Vibrant Rajasthan, captured in an Eau de Parfum. Tempered by stately elegance.

Created by Bertrand Duchaufour, Penhaligon’s London’s new fragrance Vaara was inspired by no other than the Royal House of Marwar-Jodphur in Rajasthan. The composition started life as the passion of His Highness Gaj Singh II who wanted to reflect his family’s deep love and connection with Jodhpur and to celebrate his granddaughter Vaara’s birthday.

Top notes: Quince, Rosewater, Carrot Seed, Coriander Seed, Saffron
Middle notes: Moroccan Rose Absolute, Bulgarian Rose Oil, Freesia, Indian Magnolia, Peony, Iris
Base notes: Honey, White Musk, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Benzoin Resin, Tonka Bean

Vaara’s luxurious bouquet leads the nose to a parure of petaled jewel tones. Rubies, diamonds, sapphires and pearls are translated into a string of scents rich in compatible elegance. As if on cue, they compose an exotic aura; there, the Absolute rule of roses is in everlasting bloom. After a single spritz, those in your presence will be transfixed. A rose-infused Eau de Parfum by any other name would not be the same: The multifaceted dazzle that is Vaara is the only sparkle you’ll ever need to adorn your days and nights.

It offers a unique and beautiful glimpse into this aromatic world of the Maharaja. Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour’s journey to Jodhpur provided him with an abundance of inspiration for the fragrance and the end result, Vaara, cleverly captures the spirit of this fascinating part of India.

A secret garden at the backyard of an Indian palace a summer evening. The smell of saffron on hot skin. Spicy nights and burning desires in a flacon. This scent will never let you go
