Not often in life will you come across a perfume brand that was started by a farmer. Most perfumes are either extension lines of a luxury brand or the fancy of a Hollywood celebrity, but Ajmal Perfumes has a different story to tell.
It all started when Ajmal Ali, a farmer from Assam moved to Mumbai to try his luck as a perfume trader. Young Ajmal was certain that he could eke out a living by selling ‘agarwood’ or ‘oudh’ (abundantly present in Assam) to Arab traders who held a soft spot for India’s aromatic flora. He was right. After successfully starting his perfume range in Mumbai in the early 1950s, Ajmal moved bases to Dubai in 1976. Today the company is renowned across the middle-east for its alluring fragrances.
