Pine pinon, peru balsam, cistus labdanum, styrax, canagana, dark beeswax, olive oil
Fragrance has been entrancing and beguiling us for millennia. Hieroglyphics in Egyptian tombs show that Ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians were making perfume, as long ago as 3,000 BC. The first perfumers, Egyptian priests, used aromatic resins to sweeten the smell of sacrificial offerings. People believed that burning incense connected humans with the Gods and pleased the deities. Egyptian priests and their Pharaoh’s were entombed with fragrances, buried with scented oils, to ensure their olfactory needs were fulfilled.
Derived from wounds in trees, the tears or resin that weeps out from the bark, these resins are associated with religious or ceremonial purposes, burned in holy places & associated with death as it is one of the ingredients used in embalming by the early Egyptians where it is believed perfume was created. Pine pinon, peru balsam, cistus labdanum, styrax & canagana are heavy, dark and spicy, with rich, heavy, sweet, woody and incense notes. Dark, leathery, and rich this exotic fragrance is completely gender neutral & all encompassing.
