Cyprus powder is a historical perfume whose name dates back to the Middle Ages and to Cyprus, a land rich in perfume plants, where they were made.
It was a powder, made from natural ingredients of which there were several recipes. One of them, based on oak moss, gave its name and its accord to the note of the chypre perfumes of modern perfumery, which were common at the beginning of the 20th century and which still exist today.

The Cyprus powder was a base for making other home fragrance recipes, in these 17th and 18th centuries when hygiene was in decline and where perfumes masked odors. But mainly, it was the powdery scent characteristic of wigs in vogue at that time in all of European society.
It is therefore the historical recipe for an authentic wig perfume that is offered to you in this 100% natural powdery perfume based on various globalized scent plants - flowers, spices, resins - eggshells.
On the other hand, it is the main recipe - the black one - and the easiest to make and not the one based on oak moss - the green one - which subsequently gave its name to the whole accord and which does not was just a possible variation.

Are you a fan of reenactment, a historian, do you own a historical wig, are you a collector or are planning to wear one as part of a cultural event or a film?
Then Cyprus powder is for you. It will add the authentic olfactory dimension to your outfit and make your event more historic.

Please note: the powder, although sifted, is still a little coarse. Use the puff and don't forget to pat your wig down to remove the excess so that only the scent is left.
100% artisanal and natural product, 100% reproduced, its conservation is long-lasting but uncertain. Protect it as much as possible from heat and direct sunlight.
Non-vegan product: contains ingredients derived from animals.

I'm so sorry, but there is absolutely no blue lotus scent to this oil. It has no scent at all. I had three friends take a sniff and we all agree it smells like olive oil. I'm sorry I can't be more positive. You were so kind to re-send me a second one as the first package broke and the oil was missing in the envelope. I've purchased blue lotus oil in the past and this oil isn't blue lotus oil. Sorry. . .
