Ajmal Perfumes: A Fragrant Journey

The story of Ajmal Perfumes begins with the visionary founder, Late Haji Ajmal Ali. Born into a family of rice farmers in Alinagar, a small village in Hojai, Assam, India, Haji Ajmal Ali recognized early on that agriculture alone couldn't sustain his family.

In 1950, armed with determination, he embarked on a journey that would shape the destiny of Ajmal Perfumes. Leaving his homeland, Haji Ajmal Ali arrived in Mumbai in 1951. Faced with the challenge of finding a sustainable livelihood, he transitioned from a farmer to a perfumer.
