I remember well, when i recieved my first bottle of perfume. It was amongst my presents on a christmas morning , wrapped in a lovely box with bright red christmas paper and a big bow.. I was 12. That christmas i felt so grown up.. I wore a beautiful new blue dress with a red sash and red shoes..
My favorite perfume of all time, that really suits my skin and makes me feel good ,for me the fragrance is just divine..This perfume holds a special place and the scent takes me back to such memorable days in my life.
My second choice is the classic Chanel No 5.. "wow, whats that fragrance or perfume you have on" ! I am asked. No 5 , takes me to another dimentional time in the diary of my mind. It never ceases to amaze me , what an impact "smells" have on us.!

I hope to get my atomizer full again.. Its time for a visit to the perfume shop..!
Bottles of perfumed essences.. such delight- which one shall it be!
Simply beautiful. Hand blown Egyptian glass perfume bottles.
Always fascinated with the perfume shops of Cairo..On our visits there, my mother would delight in acquiring a few special frangrances to add to our collection. Those days were so memorable and exciting.

The essences and perfumes were "Gold" to the Ancient Egyptians.. and were used at various cerimonial events..for bathing and sometimes used in the process of mummification..and placed in "amphoras" at the side of the pharoes sarcophagus, when buried in their tombs.
