About This Product

Susinon was a luxurious and strongly scented lily perfume that was made by the  Egyptians as well as the Greeks, but the Egyptian version was thought to “excel most’. This fabulous fragrance was also used by Cleopatra to scent the sails of her royal barge, perfuming the air along the Nile as she sailed, proclaiming herself as Goddess and Queen. The exhaustive recipe for Susinon calls for spices and resins to first be soaked in fragrant wine and balanos oil to be prepared. When the oil ready, it is added to the spices along with 1,000 lilies. Interestingly, in our time a lily perfume would be almost exclusively worn by women, but for the ancient Egyptians, Susinon was one perfume deemed suitable for a man.
* 1,000 LILIES PERFUME has been created for Denver Art Museum’s KING TUT exhibit, 2010.

    Heavenly! I had read of an Egyptian lily perfume in Alice Hoffman’s “The Dovekeepers” and I think this may be it! I will need to order the perfume because the eau does not last. JRL
