The heady fragrance, the unique shape and colour of the mystical Madurai Malligai (Jasmine) symbolises love, purity and contentment and this is what makes the flower so special!
We invite you to a specially curated sensory experience of Jasmine, as it makes its journey from the farm to the perfume bottle. You will also be part of our advanced workshop on perfumery which will further your fragrance journey.
Start the fragrant experience on the farm in the shadows of the Nagamalai hills. Row upon row of Jasmine plants gently beckon you as the dawn breaks. As the air, redolent with the fragrance of the Jasmine, join the farmers family to delicately pick the buds with reverence.
We follow the Jasmine as it makes its way to the market where traders converge from all over the world. Join the hustle and bustle as the buds go to the next step in their journey. By noon the Jasmine is pure white. Speed is of the essence as the Jasmine is transported to distill the aromatic oils. Here is also where the flowers are made in to garlands and strings.
With a lot of inspiration from Nature you will now set out to make your own unique blend of fragrance in NIRO Perfume Studio’s advanced perfumery workshops. We guide you through the process to capture your inspiration and personality in a bottle to take home with you. With access to over 60 different raw materials, we will dive deep into Fragrance classification, description, composing perfumes, creative techniques, thinking like a perfumer & the understanding of decorating and accentuating your creation.
The body and mind are gradually brought into alignment as you feel and create art with the flowers. Become one with the Universe at the mindful yoga and meditation session. The experience is heightened as you relax with jasmine scented water and oils.
The Jasmine themed gala dinner is where we celebrate together. Learn the stories, history and people behind the Madurai Mallige (Jasmine). This is the time to mingle and have fun. Taste the exquisite taste of Jasmine inspired drinks, food, desserts and even wine! You will be pleasantly surprised.
No trip to Madurai is complete without visiting the Meenakshi temple where the Jasmine garland finally adorns the neck of the Goddess.
