- Emballage papier couleur mat - étiquette ronde avec logo de la boutique

  • Handmade
  • Ships from a small business in

    France

  • Materials: Huile, Coing, Parfum antique, Parfum naturel

(I will say and repeat, despite my warning in the introduction: antique perfumes are very light and proceed by enfleurages of vegetable oil and therefore have nothing to do with what you know. If the notion of antique perfume is beyond you, IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO ACCEPT VERY LOW PERFUMES, DO NOT PURCHASE HISTORIC OILY PERFUME AND THEN MAKE A CATASTROPHIC RATING, THANKS.)

Mini glass bottle containing an oily scent of quince according to an ancient Dioscoride recipe.
You can choose between 2 variations:

- Transparent glass bottle, capacity 2 ml.
- Anti-UV roll-on, capacity 4ml, which allows you to protect this natural product as much as possible from light and external contamination.

It is an artisanal perfume reproduced from a precise and authentic recipe of antiquity. It is oily, like oriental perfumes, because the perfume with alcohol did not exist. Realized by hand for one week using the technique of cold enfleurage, it contains no added essential oil, no chemical or synthetic substance nor any preservative. It was made 100% according to the conditions of the Antiquity, enfleurage of raw materials which rested there.

In fact, its fragrance is unique, historical, and the product smells like you have never felt in your life - nor me either, before realizing it. Product that required a lot of work, patience and raw materials of high quality, it has necessarily been expensive. Found in a medical book, it was nevertheless a perfume more intended to cure than to actually perfume, the difference between the two is not always clear for the ancients.

But it's a true olfactory voyage in time, to discover the true products of the Ancients to which I invite you, a real chance to really and authentically feel an oily fragrance of more than 2000 years whose recipe was precise and which was respected to the letter!

Please note that:

- This product is not a cosmetic. It is not meant to go on the skin but just to be smelled, people of antiquity not knowing standards to regulate their perfumes. Thus, if you experience the least embarrassment, the Lab is not responsible, this product is primarily experimental.
- This product has no synthetic preservative, natural degradation is possible and random, impossible to predict in time. The Cleopatra Lab can not be held responsible for the natural degradation of a natural product!
- It is a fragile product that you must protect from direct rays of sunlight so as not to degrade it quickly.

Attention artisanal perfumes made according to ancient methods do not contain added essential oils and therefore feel much less strong. To maximize their conservation, protect them from direct sunlight and heat, and any impurities.

I'm a kyphi newbie and I have yet to have two that are similar enough for comparison. I really like this version, which was my 5th trial. It has a pleasant but subtle scent, slightly fruity and spicy. So far my favorites have been this sort of texture (compressed gummy like), where I am able to break off a small piece to burn slowly. I absolutely love that the recipe was followed as carefully as possible. The end results were well worth it.

I wouldn't give a star, but I had to click on one of the stars to leave a review. This product, which looks like a dry goat droppings, is really a joke of the woman who made it. In the heat there is no smell and if you put it on coal, it smells of burnt grass from the barn, not a pleasant smell. Because this store is not about quality, but about the amount of money you will pay !!!!. I warn you before buying this product in this store total shit!! Personally, I won't buy anything there.

Response from echodecythere

Je suis navrée que ce produit vous ai à ce point déplu. Votre avis, extrêmement violent, manque de courtoisie et je vous serais reconnaissante, à défaut d'autre chose, de le modérer. Les autres avis concernant ce produit parleront sans doute mieux de la qualité de ma production, entièrement artisanale et faite dans le respect des recettes anciennes (que j'étudie avec soin, comme vous pourrez le constater si vous faites l'effort de vérifier mes différentes publications). Les produits anciens n'ont effectivement pas la forte odeur d'huiles essentielles à laquelle vous semblez être habituée, mais cela ne justifie certainement pas une telle acrimonie.
