The perfumers of the East vow this will make women love their husbands (we’ll never tell your 'secret' if you don’t!).

Egyptian Musk has unique properties which make Egyptian Musk oil different from other musk oils, or for that matter from any other perfume. • It is not a strong smelling perfume. Therefore, it can be applied liberally. This is what it was meant for, to apply it all over the body originally! • It is a powerful deodorant. It masks the smell of sweat and other bodily odors and overpowers them all. • It is a slow release perfume, making it long lasting. The original perfume is made to release its smell as it receives more body heat. So, this oil vaporizes slowly and thus provides long lasting fragrance for many hours. • Musk scent has a strong effect on the psychological state of a person. It has the ability to alter a person’s mood and calm down anxiety, stress or irritated behavior. Egyptian Musk oil's original recipe and formulations are mentioned in ancient Egyptian books. Today, the oil is an approximation of the original perfume product that used to be made in ancient Egypt. Musk was originally the perfumed compound derived from the musk pods found in the Musk deer. Musk deer were hunted on a large scale for this prized aromatic natural product, which has led to a significant dwindling of their population. Now, animal musk is replaced with either synthetic musk or by plant sources which resemble musk. The ancient Egyptian used the natural musk derived from the musk deer. Its aroma is a complex mix of scent that can be described as woody, earthy, pleasant, and fragrant. The ancient Egyptian Musk oil probably contained the following ingredients. • Natural musk • Frankincense • Myrrh • Patchouli • Rose It probably was built in to a base oil to keep all the ingredients well mixed. At present, the Egyptian musk oil is made using the original ingredients except for the Natural Musk. This is replaced either by plant sources which resemble musk, or by synthetic musk. There are few plants which are commercially used to extract an oily substance which resembles musk in fragrance. • Abelmoscus moschatus – Also known as musk mallow or Ambrette seed , it is native to India. Musk mallow seed oil is used as a substitute for musk. • Olearia argophylla – Also known as musktree and more commonly by the name muskwood. It is native to Australia. • Mimulus moschatus – It is commonly known as muskflower. It is found in the Rocky mountains. • Angelica Archangelica – It is commonly known as Garden Angelica. It grows in wild numbers in Scandinavia. Interested in making Egyptian Musk Oil? (I cannot say that this is Attar Bazar's formula)! These are the essential oils needed: • Frankincense essential oil • Myrrh essential oil • Patchouli essential oil • Rose petal essential oil • Cedarwood essential oil • Ambrette seed oil ( Musk seed oil ) • Amber oil • Perfume base ( for example, Jojoba oil or Sweet Almond Oil ) Procedure Take a large bottle, about 8 oz in volume. • Add 4 oz jojoba oil and then add 1 oz ambrette seed oil. This serves as a base for the perfume. Ambrette seed oil renders the musk fragrance. • Add 5 drops each of patchouli, rose, cedarwood and amber essential oil. • Add 10 drops each of myrrh and frankincense essential oil. This makes an Egyptian Musk scent that smells like musk with overtones of frankincense. Patchouli and rose add flowery aroma. Cedarwood essential oil adds a woody aroma.

You can add a small amount of this perfume oil to add fragrance to many household products, like soaps, shampoo, hand sanitizers, body cream, night creams, lotions and in aromatherapy. Its aroma can be diffused in the air using a vaporizer. This combination of essential oils provides many aromatherapy worthy health benefits. When applied to the skin, it exerts many properties. • Emollient – The original Egyptian musk oil was rubbed all over the body. It may have been used to keep the skin healthy and moisturized. • Insect repellent – It keeps most kinds of insects, pests and flies. • Anointing oil – Egyptian Musk oil historically was used for anointing purposes.

Reviewer: Patricia Mallia from Cedar Park, TX  
I have been purchasing Attar Bazaar oils for over 10 years.

I do not wear anything but Egyptian Musk and Sherif fragrances. Although I have tried several others, these are my absolute favorite. I receive many compliments from people everyday on the scent I have on. It's amazing. I don't wear perfume since finding these oils. Perfume smalls so offensive regardless the fragrance, it smalls fake. Attar Bazzar oils blend with your own body chemistry giving it a natural smell all it's own. I buy in large quantities when I can for fear of running out or it isn't made anymore. Love it, love it love it! :)
