    Egypt is one of the most exclusive fragrances created by Albert Fouquet. In 1935, Albert decided to fulfill a promise made ​​to visit Ahmed, a childhood friend, and accomplish one of his dreams at the same time. Albert was fascinated by ancient Egyptian culture and while visiting his friend in Egypt he could enjoy lengthy tours of the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as the temples of Luxor and Hatshepsut. For Albert Fouquet, the visit was also an opportunity to travel to the birthplace of perfume. He wanted to research the essences that have been in use for thousands of years. He was also curious to discover what was in those extraordinarily aromatic jars offered to the gods to protect the pharaohs, or in the scents used to satisfy the revered Cleopatra.


    Notes include cardamom, nutmeg, leather, patchouli, sandalwood, lavender, lemon, moss.
