Anubis by Papillon at Indigo Perfumery
Inspired by the Egyptian God of the afterlife, Anubis, the heady blooms of jasmine, immortelle and pink lotus bloom amongst a rich suede that smoulders. The incense base of Anubis, containing frankincense, sandalwood, and labdanum, beautifully emphasizes a perfume shrouded in darkness and veiled in a mystery.

Liz Moores describes Anubis:
"Anubis began life as a signature scent for myself. I have always been drawn to dark, leathery scents and the metamorphosis of Anubis from personal sketch to final product has been considerable. It was nameless until it was completed and it was then that I realised my obsession with ancient Egypt had subconsciously manifested itself; the initial materials used, synonymous with mummification, have now been sweetened into a dark but delicious fragrance. After many reincarnations, Anubis was born."
This is the first perfume I fell in love with immediately and has absolutely captivated me. It's a mystical journey of leather, smoke, myrrh and musk – perfectly blended with a subtle hint of sweetness. While it starts with an intense opening, it's never overpowering and the longevity is amazing. It's warm, it's mysterious, it's special. Everyone should take the opportunity to smell this artistic masterpiece.
