Have you ever dreamt of traveling to Egypt? Are you inspired by elegant Egyptian-themed perfume bottles? Want to ride a camel, see the Sphinx and the pyramids, maybe even buy a local perfume bottle? We still can’t do that safely now due to the pandemic, but here you can do it from your armchair …

Egypt has always been a subject of exotic fascination by Western cultures. The majority of our Egyptian themed items were inspired by the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1923, and came out in the 1920’s and 30’s. However a few predate that era, and the fascination has continued up to the current day. Shown below are the full range from advertising to high-end items from around the world, as well as souvenir bottles that would have been sold in Egypt.
