Penhaligon’s – Trade Routes – Cairo
Cairo – eternal pearl of North Africa and the Arab world. Ancient cradle of culture and science, center of trade, Mediterranean melting pot: The capital of Egypt breathes the spirit and history of millennia.
There must be a thousand fragrant gems buried in the sacred ground of this mystical, majestic metropolis! Perfumer Christophe Raynaud went on a journey to find the most beautiful of them …
His expedition led him into the history and present of Cairo. He was inspired by his recent travels to Egypt, by the collection of Egyptian antiques at the Louvre and iconic goods of the old spice trade route.
In this Arabian-fairy-tale-like perfume, the finest saffron and burning incense meet the floral richness of a Damask Rose and the balsamic scent of labdanum. Furthermore, aromatic cypriol facets and sweet vanilla mingle with patchouli and noble wood notes of atlas cedar and sandalwood.
