What sort of perfumes and fragrances did they have in ancient Egypt? I know they had lotus, and various insences, but what else?
(I'm just curious because I've got some aromatherapy oils and would like to try and make an 'Egyptian perfume' Smile )

Only thing I could add, would be that they got it from Pwenet (Poent) and indirectly from Yemen. Not very handy, I know Cool
