About This Product
KYPHI (an alternate spelling is Khyphi) is probably the most famous of all early Egyptian perfumes handed down to us from antiquity. Kyphi is the Latin version of the Greek translation of Kapet in Egypt which was originally a general term for fumigation through smoke and was used in the temples. Eventually Kyphi developed a particular recipe and ‘brand’. Primarily used as an incense, Kyphi was also used as a remedy for such ailments as nightmares and snake bites.
