WHERE DOES EGYPTIAN MUSK COME FROM ?
The scent of Egyptian Musk is known worldwide, it being one of the most loved fragrances dating centuries back. The origins of Egyptian Musk comes from the scent and oil production of Egypt, were ancient wall friezes depict women pouring oil from large vessels wearing scent cones on their heads and rubbing perfume on their bodies. The musky oils and waxes at the time were thick, so they could easily be applied with an attractive sheen, and the scent heavy enough so it would mask any unpleasant odors coming from daily life. The ancient Egyptian Musk derived its musk scent from the Civet and Musk Deer, which made the fragrance extremely pricey and made it only accessible to the affluent of society, and this highly prized perfume was placed in ancient tombs as a gift for the 'afterlife'. It is known that Queen Cleopatra of Egypt wore Egyptian Musk oil herself during her lifetime.
