Ruh Khus - Traditional North Indian Vetiver 2023


Shipping to United States: Free

Introducing Ruh Khus, a captivating earthy fragrance.

Derived from the roots of the North Indian Vetiver plant, Ruh Khus embodies the essence of tranquility and freshness.

Ruh Khus is renowned for its distinctive aroma, characterized by deep earthy, smoky, and woody notes with hints of sweetness, peppermint and menthol. The fragrance opens with a grounding and cooling sensation, and slowly transitions to earthy richness of the root essence, creating a harmonious and comforting experience. For me personally it is the aroma of wood shavings at a carpenter’s shop mixed with fresh morning grass.

Ruh Khus is considered cooling and typically used in the summers. The long-lasting nature of this attar ensures that its enchanting aroma lingers on the skin, for hours. It is considered to have a cooling effect and is often used in the summer.

Inhaling the aromas of Ruh Khus has a deep soothing effect and grounding effect for me.


✨Crafted using traditional deg-bhapka distillation methods of North India, this attar preserves the purity and authenticity of the Vetiver roots. The result is a concentrated fragrance suitable for both men and women. This 2023 distillation is still fresh and will turn more subtle, rich and serene as time passes.

✨ Typically floral attars last a few hours on the skin. The Ruh Khus lasts several hours. The effect and time varies from person to person depending on the season, how the attar interacts with the skin and where it applied. The common points of application are inside the wrists, behind the ears and neck. Hydrated skin holds fragrance longer.

...the journey with traditional Ouds and Attars goes beyond mere fragrance—it's a passage through time and memory.

Oudh Manipur Musk transported me to the Kashmir of the 70s, wandering through ancient markets and my great uncle's cosmetics shop. Inhaling Taif Rose brought back the aroma of my grandfather's garden in the 80s.

Ruh Motia recalls 90s strolls through the streets of Kipling’s Mussoorie, while natural Deer Musk embodies the warmth of winter mornings at the foothills of the Sivaliks. Attar Shamama encompasses the essence of a decades-old South Indian spice market, and Ruh Khus captures the earthy notes of wet grass after monsoon rains.

Arabian lands are evoked by the Ouds, with Cambodian Oudh reminiscent of the 80s Bedouins selling wild honey in the South Arabian mountains. Assam Oudh embodies the Sacred Precinct of Mecca, and Oudh Amiri brings memories of touching the Ancient House. Medina, the Illumined, is like a melody—a place where the heart grows still and the air is tranquil with angelic presence. Here, Oudh Merauke becomes a soothing balm.

I share these experiences to express that the gift of aromatic senses is uniquely personal. Allow yourself to be healed and complete through the timeless elegance of traditional aromas. This journey touched a primal chord in my being, and I hope each drop of these artisanal distillations does the same for you. With gratitude for your indulgence.
