by Centauri Perfumes

Dendera is inspired by the mystery and beauty of Ancient Egypt, from where perfume originates. It's difficult not to be in awe when one stands at the foot of the great pyramids, or looks into the gold face mask of Tutankhamen. The mysteries left behind by the ancients, and the richness of Egyptian culture, is the inspiration behind this scent. Dendera is an ancient temple, built upon an even older temple that was only recently discovered beneath its floors. Dendera is famous for its "Dendera Lightbulbs" embossed upon the walls inside the temple. 

The scent opens with a rich blend of cinnamon and nutmeg, paired with a dusty orris butter and Vietnamese oud combination. The resins are at their strongest through the midpoint of the fragrance, and they provide a natural incense accord that lingers to the end of the dry-down. As it progresses through the dry-down, the creamy tonality of sandalwood comes to play, coated with the sparkling musky ambergris, sweetened ever so slightly by the Madagascan vanilla. 

NOTES: Nutmeg, cinnamon, orris butter, rose absolute, Vietnamese oud, East Indian sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, frankincense, myrrh, labdanum, Madagascan vanilla absolute, white ambergris

  1. Myrrh mostly 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2021

    If you love the scent of real myrrh, the essential oil, you may want to try this as a spicy, more complex way of enjoying those notes. But this is kind of rough and spare for a proper perfume. To me it just smells like wearing myrrh oil with labdanum and cinnamon.

  2. Olfactory trip to Egypt 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2020

    Despite the mandatory star rating, this is not an average scent.

    Centauri is an interesting outfit, as can be observed by the great-looking bottle. Even the cap is original (although a bronze finish might work even better than the copper).

    Sadly, all I can smell on me, versus on paper, is the orris butter, and this costly ingredient smells a lot like plain butter on me. With luck, though, other people can have that virtual trip to Egypt!
