Ruh motia dilution blends well with nearly every essential oil and attar.  It is used for high class florals, sacred perfumes, and garland perfumes. This ancient Ruh represents the highest form of sacred perfumes.  It is not regularly produced, and is often aged for  years to acquire the finest aroma. The indolic and animalic notes usually found in jasmine absolute are almost totally absent in the distilled Ruh. This Ruh captures more of the fine fresh topnotes that one smells in the evening as the flowers begin to open. This aromatic creation blends well with most oils, and especially botanical amber, cardamom, cassia, champa leaf, rosewood, galbanum, davana, may chang, and saffron.

Anecdotal Information

Another beautiful distillation of jasmine, this Ruh is created from the flowers of jasmine sambac.  It’s aroma is fresh and reminiscent of the top notes that jasmine displays in the evening, when the flowers open and fragrance begins to fill the air.

I have a bottle of Ruh Motia that I have aged for over 15 years.  The oil has changed from a light amber colored liquid to a deep brown with shades of red.  The fragrance is most delicious, with a complex depth and a surprising spicy note that reminds me of old leather and horses.  I use it for men’s blends and after shave preparations, as well as wearing it myself as a beautiful perfume on its own!
