The Egyptian blue waterlily, known as the Blue Lotus, was a real blue waterlily that was highly valued by the Pharaohs. It is an uncommon plant that grows in marshes and ponds in the region today. The flower blooms for just three days, during which it rises 20-30cm above the water and opens around 8:00 am and closes around noon. The blue lotus flower is said to have a sweet, floral scent that is both calming and relaxing.

Cardamon has a warm, spicy aroma that is both sweet and slightly bitter.

Saffron has a strong smoky, leathery, spicy scent with tarry undertones and a touch of honey. It is somewhat sweet and flowery.

Cinnamon has a warm, sweet, and spicy aroma that is perfect for Autumn and Winter.

Myrrh has a strong, woody, and slightly sweet scent. It is said to be comforting and soothing, making it an ideal ingredient in this perfume.

Taif Rose is a rare and exotic rose that is native to the Taif region of Saudi Arabia. The flower has a strong, sweet, and spicy fragrance that is both intoxicating and alluring. The scent of the Taif Rose is said to be similar to that of jasmine, with hints of cinnamon and cloves.


Overall Nefertum is a bold and heady perfume. The lotus is undoubtedly the show-stopper.

A dusky note of saffron and clouds of cinnamon and cardamom emerge in gentle, smooth waves, while a grounding of myrrh adds a leathery touch.

The Frankincense note acts as a balancer making this perfume smell just right. Not too overwhelming yet bold enough to enjoy.

Finally, the Taif rose and Mysore sandalwood radiate through the dry down leaving a sweet, woody and powdery finish.

 

The perfume story by Teone:

LEGEND:- My people fell into their customary walking pattern along the path in one silken movement of bodies. It was an old custom that flowed us in a smooth circle around the glow of fire under the open sky.
As we swayed in the fragrant dusk of descending night, the healing waters of the Fayum made a perfect meeting place for my people to gather nightly, when our great Goddess, Sekhmet summoned us to receive the teaching messages from our home.
The darkness drifted around us like mist and our energies began to pool in a living sphere of deep and clear intention. No one spoke. It was not our place to speak here. Linen-robed and anointed with sacred oils, the priestess appeared at the altar, rocking and humming, hypnotised by the medicine of all time. Her black eyes glowed in her gaunt brown face. She began to chant. Without movement or sound, we joined as one. The Priestess’s words spiralled out in a cascade of smooth stone memories, aromatic in the sweet, dry smoke from our pungent herbs.
Our senses sailed into the cold, blue, unconscious sky of true mind as we entered through the trance-gate into the Temple of Sekhmet. Tiny flashes of magnesium-white light pierced the veil. We raised our radiant faces to the stars as the great winds blew silently across the desert sands. The human construct of time fell away. Silently, and effortlessly transfigured, we moved back, in single file through the lush green growth of the oasis and along the hidden pathways until we reached the doorway.
Our priestess raised her hands and motioned in a sequence of symbols that trailed butterflies of golden light as she chanted. The stone threshold began to glow in dazzling blue flashes as my people crossed into the utter blackness of the great descending staircase.
