Definition of attar

Categorized under "Roses"

Definition as written by paulgrow:

Etymology - Persian 'atir' (perfumed); from Arabic, 'itr' (perfume)

Definition as written by Terry:

A term for a perfume from flowers. In Europe, it generally applies only to the attar (otto) of roses, a concentrate which smells pleasant only when diffused.

The process of collecting this concentrate is inefficient - 150 pounds of rose flowers will yield less than an ounce of attar.
