View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Ancient Egyptians at all levels of society were extremely concerned with scent and cleanliness and used an array of aromatics and essential oils to suit all occasions, both in this life and the next. Joann Fletcher investigates the extensive evidence in artistic, literary and archaeological sources and provides a guide to various oils and perfumes favoured by the ancient Egyptians. She looks at where they came from, how they were produced and stored and at the different ways in which they were used - practical, therapeutic, social, religious and funerary. Finally she suggests a number of ways to indulge yourself in true ancient Egyptian style.
