Queen Cleopatra wasn’t only known for being an exquisite ruler of Egypt, she is also known for creating seductive perfumes. Cleopatra blended different herbs and scents to bring together a certain fragrance to arouse the opposite sex and emphasise love connections. It has been said that Cleopatra used a “fatal fragrance” which men were weakened by and catered to her will.
Cleopatra’s stories of her physical charms and perfumes are legendary and found in sculptures, paintings, gems, and perfumes named in her honour. Not only did she control Mark Anthony with her scents, she even conquered Julius Caesar! When Cleopatra sailed from Egypt to the city of Tarsus, a historic city in Turkey, to meet Mark Antony, She travelled in a magnificent barge filled with flowers and scented with exotic perfumes while she reclined on deck surrounded by her servants and trappings of gold. Antony enjoyed women and once he saw her, he fell under her spell.
