Bastet Perfume Oil
$20.00 – $85.00
The cat goddess of ancient Egypt, Bastet is often shown with a sistrum (a rattle) in one paw and many kittens at her feet. She was a woman's goddess and assumed the most power at the end of the Egyptian Empire's power. Cats are often thought of as being sophisticated creatures who would drink tea rather than coffee. Though there was no tea in Ancient Egypt, if there had been this is what it would have smelled like: a rich blend of green tea spiked with the smoke of fragrant burning spikenard, a whiff of coumarin (they didn't have vanilla but this could have been available) and it is thick black sweet and lovely. So, let your imagination run away with you. A sprinkling of sweet spices finishes it all off so nicely. Gourmand.
