Nefer - Parfum Prissana - Bloom Perfumery

In ancient Egyptian, Nefer (as in Nefertiti!) was the word for beauty or goodness.

If you traced the history of perfume back to the first records ever made by humans, you would probably end up in ancient Egypt. The incense and embalming solutions connected to gods, and the use of personal perfumes signalled status - and in the case of Cleopatra, seduction. The queen was known to soak the sails of her Nile ships in rose oil, so the wind would herald the fragrant news of her imminent arrival. When archaeologists found ancient perfume bottles in the tombs, the fragrances worthy of the afterlife were prepared with myrrh, cinnamon and cardamom, among other ingredients.

Nefer, the new perfume from Prissana, is inspired by this story: the ancient incense recipe, the mystery of a long-lost fragrance, and the dry desert winds carrying the spicy balm.
