Egyptian Queen's Perfume to Be Resurrected


The favorite perfume of powerful Egyptian "she king" Hatshepsut may be resurrected from residue found in a 3,500-year-old perfume bottle.

X-ray photographs of the 4.7-inch-tall (12-centimeter-tall) bottle, from the permanent collection of Bonn University's Egyptian Museum, reveals remnants of the ancient oil. Scientists plan to identify the substance and, possibly within a year, re-create the perfume.

Considering mosquito repellent was a major luxury for Egyption nobels, it probably was used for that as well. (the blue eyelid makeup on eqyptian nobles was used for just this.)
