Description

Description

Tagetes minuta (or wild marigold) is a herb native to South America and naturalised across the globe. It can be identified by its vibrant orange flowers and its aromatic leaves that provide the distinct fragrance captured in perfumery. In India, locally grown Tagetes minuta is distilled, often alongside sandalwood oil, to create a popular perfume material known as ‘attar genda’.

Tagetes oil is extracted by steam distillation of the stems and leaves, creating a rich, golden liquid with a bold, herbaceous fragrance.
