Inspired by Laxmi - the Goddess of Abundance; W is a heady, seductive floral scent that is rich and sumptuous, feminine and powerful. Sweet citrus top notes and bright floral accents expand into a fragrant, uplifting brave heart of tuberose, jasmine samba, champa and rose otto, anchored in a soft, tranquil base of deep, rich vanilla absolute, warming sandalwood, frankincense and myrrh with a hint of sacred pink lotus absolute, hand-blended in a glorious amplification of the magnificence of Woman.
Made using traditional methods by our friend Roques O'Neil in her London atelier; W is blended, poured and packaged by hand in the smallest of batches to better preserve the exquisite natural (and where possible organic) essential oils, absolutes and resins it contains. A truly artisan offering with each precious perfume presented in a chic rollerball, tied with mauli and three silver bells (to serve as a gentle gentle reminder to value the past, live fully in the present and with hope for the future).
Can come nestled in roses blessed and gathered from temples in North India and encased in a steel vessel.
W carries the passion and story of all those is part of its creation captured in one little bottle and radiated out to you.
5ml - Free from water, alcohol, chemical preservatives, stabilisers and additives.
A pure perfume's alchemy comes as much from the wearer as the precious oils within. Ideally, the scent should be applied immediately after a shower or bath, when the skin is warm and so can better absorb the scent. Anoint the pulse points on your neck and inside wrists to encourage an intimate ritual that amplifies your magnificence.
"W evokes memories of the beautiful blessing rituals that have been a constant in my life. Fragrant flowers that signal sweet unions, celebrations and completion, the red mauli that connects those present to each other and to something greater and at the centre of it all, we pay homage to the powerful and passionate symbolism of the Laxmi - the Goddess of Abundance".

"When we launched Mauli, our NGO in India sent us temple blessed roses and I loved them so much, I asked them to gather more for our customers. From the devoted people who visited North India's temples with roses, to the friends who gathered them and sent them here, to the Mauli family who blend and pack the perfume by hand with mauli - these are all good wishes radiated out to you and I feel so privileged to share in the cycle of giving, receiving. There truly is a thread that connects us here and it reminds me why we started Mauli, feels so good". Anita Kaushal
