Sri Pada can be considered the younger sibling of Rajakiya, The latter having been our initial experiment with hydro distillation in Sri Lanka. We absolutely adored the richness and exotic fruity element of Raja so replicating it at a larger scale was a no brainer.
The opening is smooth mint and camphor falling away to juicy kesar mango and acacia honey. There’s a lovely floral element that intertwines the deep woodines, dried saffron and crushed rose.
Being hydro-distilled this oil contains a deeper more mature base, the dry down is pure bubbling walla patta.
Curing of approximately 4 months has done the oil a world of good, and one thing to touch upon is the longevity and silage… The oil is no shrinking violet carrying a sense of power and strength.
