Tales Of India Collection

an indian summer

My inspiration is drawn from my memories of my childhood growing up in India: of Indian women in the marketplace with fragrant jasmine garlands in their hair. The scent of attar's, flower stalls with heady tuberoses, rose waters, and sandalwood incense sticks wafting through the air as they burned. The various flowers that bloomed at night, the smell of the earth after it rained on a hot summer day and oh the monsoons.


The smell of fresh mint leaves, ginger and lemon being crushed into juice at a vendor’s stall. The frangipani (plumeria) flowers which grew outside our home by my grandmother’s bedroom window and countless other memories that will unfold here, some translating into a fragrance to carry nostalgic memories. The curry leaf tree my grandmother tended lovingly; I now have my own small plant indoors that I treasure.

An Indian Summer Perfume

Oriental or Amber Spicy Floral EDP.

The afternoon heat seemed to have gotten to her. The hot balmy air blew gently on her face as though intentionally trying to get her to nod off.  Nora dozed off in her chair; the novel she was reading was still sitting on her lap. The characters were fascinating and belonged to another time, another world; of a period in history when the East India Company traded antiques, cotton, silks, and spices around the world.  A life filled with adventure and travel.  As she slipped into a gentle sleep, she could hear the gramophone play her favorite melodies. Cook brought her a glass of Lime Cordial and set it down next to her. You could smell the lime in the air.  Cook was busy making a concoction of curry mixed with spices. The jasmines bloomed in the garden and laced the air with their heady scent.
