EGyPTIAN LEGENDS SHINE
| ICONIC FRAGRANCE| M.T.
Penhaligon’s new perfume invites you to travel towards the in nite richness and extreme sensuality of a legendary Egyptian city: Cairo. Penhaligon’s latest olfactive creation pays a golden and sparkling tribute to the mystical and majestic city of Cairo. A cradle of culture and center for important cultural and commercial exchange, its skyline made up of buildings and pyramids never ceases to amaze.
There is an abundance of many varieties of fragrant herbs and aromatic buds growing on its sacred soil. Devoted to its past, yet also looking for its identity as a modern city, maître parfumeur Christophe Raynaud was inspired by ancient spice routes, choosing two iconic ingredients from there: saffron and wood.
At first, like the sun rising over the ancient city, the fragrance leads with an intriguing hint of spices, while saffron and burning incense reveal their expressive powers. Damascus rose shows a seductive side recreating a full and fascinating heart, seeping with beauty and full of promise. The balsamic scent of labdanum, aromatic cypriol and soft vanilla create a mirage of this mythical and timeless city. Finally, a trio of iconic woods – Sri Lankan sandalwood, Atlas cedarwood and patchouli – reveal a delicate destination yet also a carnal sensuality.
