It takes about five to six hours for Tegh Singh's roses to become attar. Throughout this process, Ram Singh stays on his toes, hopping between the still and the pot, testing the water temperature with his hands and listening to the hiss of steam to intuit whether to feed more wood into the fire. "I've been doing this since I was a boy," says the 50-year-old Ram Singh, who apprenticed with an attar guru for a decade.

在特格·辛格的玫瑰花瓣变成阿塔尔所需的五到六个小时的过程中,拉姆·辛格在蒸馏器和铜锅之间来回走动,测试水温并聆听蒸汽所发出的嘶嘶声,以判断是否要添加柴火。“我从小就一直在做这个。”50岁的拉姆·辛格说。他曾跟一位香槟酒大师做了十年学徒。

香氛熏陶的历史

The process is repeated the next day, with a new batch of rose petals, to achieve the desired potency. Once this is done, the rose attar is aged for several months in a camel-skin bottle, which wicks moisture. The finished rose attar is akin to liquid gold. One kilo (2.2 pounds) can fetch up to $3,000.

为了达到预期的浓度,隔天会使用另一批玫瑰花瓣再重复一次流程。这个步骤完成后,玫瑰阿塔尔会装在可以吸去水分的骆驼皮瓶子中熟成数个月。完成的玫瑰阿塔尔就像是液体黄金,1公斤(2.2磅)可以卖到3000美元。
