A dab of Dendera on your skin, and you are in for quite a ride. Dendera represents the past, and it smells like time travel through a wormhole to a primordial time when the universe was first swirling into existence. Cinnamon, orris, natural oud and resins smell like dust particles, motor oil and molten rock.
Meanwhile on the ground, a secret path lined by moss, wet rocks, wilted roses and rare fungi lead to an underground chamber that hasn't been touched for thousands of years. Within the chamber, there are relics from a mysterious, some say extraterrestrial, culture. Large urns loaded with cinnamon bark, fragrant wood chips and precious resins line the rooms.
Whether it's right up your alley or an acquired taste, one thing's for sure: Nobody can accuse Dendera of being boring.
