When I traveled to Egyptia (Egypt) I was completely and utterly inthralled. I had dreamed and imagined what this far away place would be like ever since I was a child. So, when I finally had the opportunity to travel to this sacred land in 2006 with the Sankofa World Publishers I was beyond excited and anxious about what the experience would be. From day 1 I walked tombs, temples and valleys of Kings, Queens and Priests who ruled and built civilizations thousands of years ago. I sailed up and down the Nile River from Cairo to Nubia on a luxurious cruise ship stopping off to places like Elephantine Island where the smell of Jasmine flowers hit me as soon as I stepped off the ship and Luxor where there were huge columns carved with papyrus and lotus petals to represent the Upper and Lower regions of Egypt. I flew to remote locations like Aswan and Abu Simbel to visit the monumental temples of Ramses II and Queen Neferatari (a perfumer) and learned that the art of perfume making was one of the high priests for healing purposes. It was all so overwhelming and absolutely MIND-BLOWING.
Today I bring you this line of travel colognes made with the memories of my travels to Egyptia still ingrained on my heart and mind.
