How did Isak Fragrances start?

Vidushi belongs to a family that has a background in perfumery and perfume making. Since her childhood, she has always been interested in the processes that are required to make a particular kind of fragrance. “I was intrigued about the significance of perfume in ones life and how they are created in the family,Says the founder.

As Her father and uncle were in the perfume-making business Mrs.vijayvergiya was always interested in the whole process and the business itself. Wherever she was always hooked on this business and always used to give ideas in her uncle’s venture which was mostly about fragments and perfumery.

Since her husband was working in Switzerland vidushi did a lot of research there not only in the marketing but also in the perfume-manufacturing side and that’s where She realized the gap between the way we develop Indian fragrances and the other natural ones.
