Perfumes For All
Several brands of perfumes are around. But why not opt for perfumes and fragrances developed by experts who have the experience of generations to their credit? Kannauj has a rich history dating back to the days of kings and queens, and scents and fragrances have been a big part of that heritage. Known as the “City of Perfume,” Kannauj has operated the “Surah and Aroma Development Center” (FFDC) since 1991. Established in collaboration with UNIDO (central and state governments), related research and testing in perfumery, from growing plants to processing, etc. are carried out in the establishment.
The One District, One Product (ODOP) program was launched by the UP government in January 2018 to encourage these indigenous and specialized products and crafts by finding new audiences for these products. This has helped dozens of artisans and MSMEs involved in making these products. Wondering where to buy these beauties? They are available on ODOP market, Amazon and Flipkart.
