'Perfume Oil’ story

Despite her love for good fragrances, the modern day’s best mainstream perfumes have failed to strike a chord with Aalia, because of their long-and-short-term harmful effects on nature and human health.

Till date she has not been able to subscribe to the aerosol* laden commercial perfumes, releasing as much chemical vapors, as from emission from vehicular
pollution! These vapors (also known as Volatile Organic Compounds/VOC) harm the proteins in our body, resulting in weak immune system—including breathing problems, migraines, hormonal imbalances, skin irritations, eczemas, contact leukoderma etc.

Hence, she dedicated herself to creating a line of her own non-harmful organic perfume oils, inspired by most luxurious scents and perfumes! She’s spent her time travelling far and wide wisely to learn how to make the safest, harmless, pure, and natural fragrances that she now herself is addicted to guilt-free! Yes, guilt-free** because these are harmless both to humans and nature, by being natural, organic, skin-friendly, non-alcoholic, non-synthetic, long-lasting base fragrances.

**Paraben-free, Sulfate-free, Alcohol-free, Gluten-free, Phthalate-free, Phosphate-free; Propylene-Free, Glycol-Free, Polycyclic Nitromusks-free; Microbead-free; Cruelty-free**

These oils are totally vegan, gender-neutral, longest-lasting, and made in India in recyclable packaging!

Wear these delicate scents, enhance and enchant your aura. Let there be curiosity among people, they won’t be able to resist you. 

Together, let's replace harmful spray scents with these natural perfume oils. Prepare yourself to get non-stop compliments for these magical ‘health-friendly’ products.

Drown yourself in soulful, guilt-free** addiction of pure base fragrance perfume oils in its exotic, on-the-go ‘dab-and-roll-on’ style.
