Ancient Egypt…the very definition of mystery and astonishing wealth to history buffs the world over, and its evolution into a cultural mania began with the discoveries of archaeologist Howard Carter, who entered the profession at the tender age of 17 and immediately proved himself an innovator in regards to field work methodology. But Carter is most well-known for his excavation in 1922 of the nearly-intact tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings. In that fateful moment when upon the precipice of a life-changing discovery, he was asked by his patron Lord Carnavon if he could see anything beyond the as-yet unopened doorway of the tomb and Carter replied, "Yes, wonderful things." This is an olfactory portrait of that famed land in fertile times: a fresh floral with Blue Lotus blossom and Pink Lotus absolute ornamenting a crown of numerous varieties of myrrh and cardamom with accents of balsam of Gilead and the golden glow of light honey and a pinch of cassia.
