Talha Motala

Motala Perfumes was established by Talha Motala in 2010 as a perfume oil company. The journey in the fragrance industry started for a 21-year-old engineering student who began importing fragrance oils…

bottling them from home and then selling these fragrances at flea markets trade fairs and popup markets during his holiday breaks. 

As his passion started building towards perfumery, Talha decided to drop engineering and study graphic design which played a huge role in product designing and development at a later stage in his journey. In June 2014 the first Motala Perfumes factory store opened in Durban and a new era of perfume manufacturing began. As the years went by he started learning entrepreneurship, business management, supply chain, research and development, product designing and many other skills by himself through the journey of fragrance. The hunger and passion for perfumery kept growing but with his dream to be the biggest perfume house and biggest perfume manufacturing facility on the entire African continent, but he needed assistance and that is when his younger brother Tahir Motala joined him.

Tahir Motala

At the fall of 2018, Tahir Motala left his full time accounting job and his further studies towards CA and joined Motala Perfumes. This is when another chapter began for Motala Perfumes…

Tahir Motala’s presence brought more stability, system and management to the organisation and by January 2021  Motala perfumes achieved production capacity of 20000 finished perfume bottles per day with state of the art customised machinery.
