On a trip to Egypt some years ago, Douglas Bender of Charenton Macerations first heard the history of Hatshepsut. Instantly hooked by her refusal to submit to the expectations of gender norms and the stupendous achievements of her reign, Bender set to work in collaboration with perfumer Cecile Hua of Mane USA on a fragrance concept inspired by the first great woman of known history. This is Charenton Macerations’ third perfume; the first was the ground breaking Christopher Street in 2013, created with Ralf Schwieger, a finalist in the 2014 Art and Olfaction Awards and the second Asphalt Rainbow, a multi gendered deconstructed rose inspired by street art.
Thanks to the generosity of Charenton Macerations, we have a 30 ml bottle of Eye, Hatshepsut($100) plus 4 discovery sets for 5 registered readers in the US. The draw for the full bottle will be random, and the sample set includes Christopher Street, Asphalt Rainbow and Eye, Hatsheput. The random winner of the 30 ml bottle is Francine. The sample set winners are Tami H, rlreff,Bostonscentguy and Dubaiscents. If you are one of the five winners please email michelyn at cafleurebon dawt com with Eye, Hatshepsut as your subject and your complete mailing details.
