Mohur, Moghul - British Raj Era.

Known as Mehrunissa, the most powerful Empress of the Mughal dynasty, Noor Jahan was the favourite wife of Emperor Jehangir. She was the true power behind the throne while her husband lived, so much so that after his death her male relatives had her sequestered (in comfort!) for the rest of her life. In her confinement, she devoted herself to the art of perfumery as it had been passed down from her mother.

Mohur is a rose-based fragrance, a combination of opulent mughal rose perfumes and a distinguished spicy leather bouquet that can only be imagined during a high tea after a polo match. To capture this moment, Mohur has been created as a refined rose-oudh alliance that pays tribute to Noor Jahan's power and talent.

The scent embodies, and is a dedication to, the mix of all the best of Mughal and the British Raj - a complex period in history for Indians which saw the flowering of unique gifts of the arts, music
and education.

Mohur is een geur op basis van roos, een combinatie van weelderige Moghul rozen parfums en een aangenaam pittig leerelement. Als tijdens een high tea na een polo wedstrijd. Om dit moment vast te leggen, is Mohur gecreëerd als een verfijnd roos-oudh samengaan, die een hulde brengt aan de roem en het talent van Noor Jahan's. 
Mohur is gebaseerd op het klassieke oosterse akkoord van roos en oudh, maar door de poederige orris krijgt het klassieke Franse allure. Het is absoluut een unisex geur ondanks het rijke en volle roos akkoord.

Olfactoria's Travels: "Mohur is particularly good for this because it is such a tapestry, a beautiful Kashmiri carpet all woven together of fragrant strands and it is thick, rich and luscious enough to float you away to other more exotic places." "Life is good when you smell this freaking fabulous."

A review in FT's How to spend it: "Darker and moodier is Neela Vermeire’s Mohur, a fragrance of rose and oud that avoids the usual tropes of the genre, heft and opacity. Vermeire, who now lives in Paris, is originally from India, and she worked with Bertrand Duchaufour to capture the elements of traditional perfumery in the subcontinent. “It’s the ‘Imperial Rose’ in our collection,” says Vermeire of the extrait version of Mohur, a potion luxuriant enough for the Empress Noor Jahan."
