From an ancient Babylonian aphrodisiac perfume recipe... a gloriously golden seduction of dark honeycomb, 5 year aged labdanum amber, oud wood, spikenard, roses petals and bay leaves fermented in honey wine, and cedarwood incense. Heavy and sweet as the body of a beloved.


"Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet,
Lion, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet.

You have captivated me, let me stand tremblingly before you.
Bridegroom, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber,
You have captivated me, let me stand tremblingly before you.
Lion, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber."


Shu-Sin reigned as king in the city of Ur from 2037-2029 BCE. This love poem was written by his lover around 2000 BCE.
