    If you've come to expect anything of Neela Vermeire's perfumes, it is a back story as rich as the perfume in the bottle. Mohur is no exception. Inspired by Noor Jahan, the empress of the Mughal dynasty who dedicated her later life to the art of perfumery, Mohur is a rose-oud-leather fragrance that pays tribute to Noor Jahan's power and talent. It features a distinguished, spicy, leather bouquet that shows off the rose's ability to shine in a perfectly unisex scent and exemplifies the nearly 500-year span of India’s history that gave rise to some of the most magnificent architecture in the world. The word "mohur" refers to the most valuable gold coin in India’s history. Notes include cardamom, coriander, ambrette, carrot, black pepper, elemi oil, Turkish rose, jasmine, violet, orris, hawthorne, almond milk accord, leather, sandalwood, patchouli, oud, benzoin, vanilla, and tonka bean.

  • Neela Vermeire was once a lawyer who was passionate about art—until she decided that passion was a better way to live. She began Perfume Paths, a series of guided tours through the exclusive perfume boutiques of Paris, to share her deep knowledge of the industry and its history. When Neela decided to launch her own line, she turned to Bertrand Duchaufour, one of the world's most sought-after noses, to create three scents that capture the rich culture and history of her native India. As creative director of Neela Vermeire Créations, she has received critical acclaim for the rich, chaptered stories that slowly unfold from each perfume in her line.
