Attar: Word of the Day

Attar, n.

A perfume or essential oil obtained from flowers or petals.

The room was adrift in the scent… the attar of roses.

Alternate usage:

“Hey, Percy!  You ready?”

“Yep.  Got my butcher knife, got my pocket mirror.  I’m ready.”

“OK, sport.  You be careful now, hear?  When she shows up, you be sure you don’t look attar.”

How will you use attar in a sentence today?

    The young lady’s therapy consisted of inhaling the attar of herbs and flowers.
