Now You Can Buy Perfumes Inspired By Mumbai, Chai, And Movies


    The Bombay Perfumery is selling unusual and beautiful perfumes with fragrances inspired by Indian experiences; an afternoon tea, an old-school day at the movies, or a stay in a city.

    What Is It?

    This brilliant perfumery from the heart of Mumbai has bottled up the scents of our favourite things, including the whiff of a cup of tea. Perfumes usually tend to get redundant, so much so that one can always guess this inevitable gift from its packaging. This contemporary fragrance house, however, has managed to stir up these notions and create the unexpected.

    Each perfume has been concocted with the idea of evoking a memory each time their scents are put on. The choices offered are Calicut, 1020, Chai Musk, Madurai Talkies, Les Cayes, Moire, Sulawesi, and Seven Islands. Each comes in a minimal white box, which {surprise surprise} opens like the petals of a flower with art-work. Inside this is the white-capped transparent 100ml bottle with black text on it.

    Although The Bombay Perfumery has been in existence for a long time and has been providing the essential ingredients for perfumes to companies, this is the first time they have created their own perfumes using Indian and international ingredients. In order to execute this, Manan has worked with noses who know their job and International perfumers such as Jacques Chabert, Alexandra Carlin, Pierre Kurzunne and Tristan Rostain.

    Anything Else?

    There are two unisex fragrances {Chai Musk and 1020}, three for men {Calicut, Les Cayes and Sulawesi} and three for women {Moire, Seven Islands, and Madurai Talkies}. These are available for free shipping all over India, and can be ordered on COD, too.

    Soon, they will also be selling sample kits of the perfumes online {with versions for men and women} for INR 500.

    If you love perfumes and would like to try out interesting ittar bottles, we found a cool place where you can buy rain-fragranced ittar, too.

    So, We’re Saying…

    Out with the boring florals and the musks, and in with these gems from The Bombay Perfumery. Suddenly, perfumes don’t seem like the most boring, predictable gifts, eh?
