An exciting and very original composition incorporating a fusion of aromatic frankincense and myrrh from Oman and the Yemen, rose from Damascus, jasmine from Egypt and a hint of the world's most costly perfumery raw material: Agarwood, or Oudh, as it is known in Arabic. Oudh is a perfume largely unknown to the western world. Years of consultancy assignments in the Near and Far East have given John Bailey an unrivalled expertise in a key emerging trend, scents of the Orient.
For thousands of years frankincense and myrrh have been used in the making of perfume and incense. These fascinating natural resins are harvested from trees growing in Arabia which, along with gold, were the treasured gifts of the Three Wise Men of biblical fame.
Renowned author of the book, Frankincense and Myrrh, Nigel St John Groom OBE, inspired and encouraged John Bailey to create the Queen of Sheba perfume to accompany the launch of his book 'Sheba Revealed', the publication of which was timed to coincide with the major exhibition, Treasures from the Ancient Yemen, in 2002 at the British Museum.
Frankincense - legend has it that it was from Oman that the three wise men uravelled to Bethlehem to see Jesus. More precious than the gold they carried was frankincense, a scented resin coming from the sap of an impressive looking desert tree which for centuries has been burned as incense and used in making perfumes and medicines.
This very beautiful and exotic oriental floral scent will guarantee the wearer a sophisticated, soft, seductive and sensual allure!
