Fragrant India

In a narrow lane in old Chochin a gem of a shop can be found. Vindy waiting to entice you in. The place had that feeling of being untouched for decades and was dusty and a little bit frayed around the edges, as are most places in India. However the treasures found inside were unexpected but totally marvellous . Vindy had the most intoxicating oil distillations I have ever smelt. Amber, Opium, lotus flower, musk and my all time favourite Oudh, a wood from the east distilled into a sticky heady attar. Beautiful little vials were filled and prices agreed.
