How We Started
IN 1971, our ancestors Late Mr. Badruzzaman (co. founder of Attar Mohammed Dawood) and Late Mr.
Hari Kishan Pandey (co. Founder of Maruti Enterprises) decided to move together to the Kingdom
of Saudi Arabia from Kannauj in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Mr. Badruzzaman Khan one of our ancestors, at a very young age, was already enthralled with
scents, fragrances and everything olfactive as he grew up. His extraordinary journey is alive in
his intricately designed, legendary body of creations. It is certainly no surprise that Master
Perfumer Mr. Badruzzaman Khan was the very first perfumer who created a very known fragrance
called Shamamatul Amber and that tradition still continues in India. His life-long partnership
with research and development of fragrances allowed him to fuse innovative natural techniques,
many of which he helped bring to life to create true works of art. Humbly, he notes that he

Late Mr. Harikishan Pandey raised in Kannauj was encouraged to develop and explore his
inquisitive nature. The patio of his childhood home captured scents like sandalwood, oud, amber;
other exotic naturals, and from there he started his own journey of creating some exotic natural
blends namely Mukhallats, Rose oils, Sandalwood extracts; various other mouthwatering blends and
natural extracts of oud from various regions. Keeping their roots in India they also spread
their arms into middle eastern countries which is now handled by their children under the
supervision of Mr. Moosa Khan; Mr. Sharad Pandey.
The decade old business is now under the hands of Mr. Kabir Khan Mr. Sairaj Pandey who in
collaboration started an Indian Luxury Brand Named Essence House. Where the friendship still
continues from grandfathers to grandchildren the dream of now grounding a collaboration store
