"We believe in bringing the finest formulated fragrances to the wearers, lending them a touch of class and sophistication."
Estd in 1805 in Lahore, Gobind Ram Kahan Chand carefully curated and preserved the scented secrets of the Mughal empress, Nur Jahan, so every subject could know the distinct and royal scents of Her Highness. These secrets were passed on for generations, perfected by Dr. KL Bhatia over decades and brought to life by me, his grand-daughter - Pallavi Bhatia
Leaving everything behind after the partition in 1947, Dr.KL Bhatia along with his family moved to Old Delhi, India. He had nothing but a couple of diaries of his classic attar formulations. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes , he started selling his most famous blends from this shop in Old Delhi. Little did he know, his best years were ahead of him. He created some of his life’s bestsellers in this phase.
“When I read my grandfather’s work, I mouth each word silently to myself. I need to hear the music of his words in my head, the rhythm of his sentences, the silences. I like his writing, his inventiveness, his personality; and when he talks about smells, I admire him. He smells it, pursues it, abandons it, comes back to it; I can’t say whether it is the perfume or the enthusiast who is beholden to the other.” - Pallavi Bhatia
I decided to recreate some of the extraordinary concoctions my grandfather developed. Having a couple of his diaries and old books, I began my journey. I started spending a lot of my time cooped up in a small space I liked to call my laboratory. I felt in tune with this place. A visitor looking at my desk would find it littered with dozens of tightly sealed little bottles, test blotter-holders shaped like windmills, the precious diaries with a myraid formulae, colored pens, boxes of junk and my grandfather’s spectacles
BIRTH OF OLFA ORIGINALS
After six years of research and development with the diaries and courses and blending workshops with Fragrance and Flavour Development Centre, Kannauj and packaging expeditions in Paris, OLFA ORIGINALS was born.
Hello! I'm Pallavi Bhatia. At Olfa Originals we strive to bring to you the finest fragrance products, so that royalty becomes you.
Our whimsical little bottles of scent have all the cachet and romance of a great vintage find.
