Eye, Hatshepsut is an olfactive homage to one of history’s most notable gender rebels: Pharaoh Hatshepsut of Egypt. A warrior, a visionary, a pioneer… she is most remembered for her enduring ability to rewrite the narrative of history in her favor: a mythical legacy forever emblazoned into the walls of her temple at Dayr al-Bahri. The structure of the fragrance takes inspiration from the many depictions of Hatshepsut as a female figure in male dress. It juxtaposes softer, sweeping floral arcs of lotus and iris with starker, contrasting resinous edges of kohl and kyphi, blending elements of strength and beauty together against the crystalline backdrop of the Saharan sands.
