Summary
"The art of modern fragrance making owes much to practices developed in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians attached great importance to perfumes and cosmetics, which men and women wore to make themselves attractive and alluring, to restore vitality and good health, and as a means of venerating the gods and of negotiating a passage to the realm of the hereafter. In this illustrated book, Lise Manniche looks at the role played by scents and cosmetics in ancient Egyptian society and discusses their preparation - in some cases providing actual recipes."--Jacket
