Discover Anubis, if you dare. With a name inspired by the Egyptian God of the afterlife, Anubis embodies the sacred mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
Heady blooms of jasmine, amid rich suede, smoulder over an incense laden base of frankincense, sandalwood, and labdanum. Vivid slashes of immortelle, pink lotus and saffron create a perfume shrouded in darkness and veiled in mystery.
Where Liz got her inspiration: "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."
A quote from Kafkaesque on Anubis: ''My tale may be poetic license that changes ancient Egyptian mythology, but it is the best way I can describe a new fragrance called Anubis by Papillon Perfumery. My first, immediate reaction to the scent was, ''Wow!'' That was followed shortly thereafter by ''Oh my God,'' some further sniffs of amazement, then a few awed phrases too vulgar to print here, lots of mental exclamation marks, and the sudden determination that every lover of dark, masculine, leathery, opulent, densely chewy, slightly naughty, luxuriously rich, smoky orientals had to try this amazing perfume.''
“When creating a perfume, I think of colours, textures and places. I imagine the people who may wear the fragrance and hope that the perfume will help them conjure their own unique and personal allusions.” - Liz Moores

This is a beautiful, sensual scent that all at once transports me to a different dark world of Egypt, the afterworld, and embalms me in smoky leather. However, it is still a very personal and everyday signature scent to me. A really unique high quality fragrance that changes as you wear it, but still keeps its dark heart and spicy identity.
