A fresh, yet exotic oriental lily perfume with spice and resin notes in the drydown.


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.

    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

    What a joy of a floral for me when I usually avoid them.

    I worried a bit when it was so sweet going on, but on my skin it quickly dried down to light mastic, a whiff of muguet, and something gently, complicatedly green, like hay. It takes a happy place on my perfume tray next to Ellena’s brilliant “Rose Poivree” and the indecorous “Jasmin et Cigarette.” A wonderful way to spend the summer!

    This is a lovely exotic fragrance combining both floral and spice with a surprising and fantastic outcome. I could smell this forever and wish there were more options for buy it in.
