Step into the realm of Lilanur, and you’ll find yourself immersed in a world of the first independent India fragrance house. In this article, we embark on a journey to unravel the captivating story of Lilanur Fragrances, from its humble beginnings to its rise as a fragrance house that resonates with the connoisseurs and scent enthusiasts of today.

Lilanur was founded by Anita Lal, who’s journey is deeply rooted in her fascination with the vibrant colours and captivating scents that adorn everyday life in the subcontinent; a narrative that started in 1947, the year of India’s independence. Her life has been a testament to unwavering cultural pride. In 1996, she brought her vision to life with the founding of Good Earth, India’s foremost design house, a celebration of India’s designs and stories. In 2017, alongside her daughter Simran Lal, Anita introduced Paro, a wellness brand rooted in Vedic wisdom, promoting holistic well-being and harmony with the cosmos, culminating in a concept boutique in India’s capital.

Throughout her creative endeavors, there’s been a consistent fragrant undercurrent – a passion for perfumery. Her enduring dream has been to craft a luxurious fragrance brand, celebrating the authenticity of Indian ingredients and reigniting the sensual tradition of scenting with Attars. With LilaNur Parfums, Anita once again ventures into uncharted territory, uniting French master perfumers with India’s iconic flora, redefining 21st-century Indian scent with a unique blend of heritage and innovation.
