Alkemia Perfumes New And Seasonal : 2022 Limited Edition Perfume Oil (Limited)

A medieval midsummer revelry of honey mead and summer berry melomel blended in a 16th century sweetwater (perfume) recipe that includes sweet briar, citrus blossom water, balsam benzoin, styrax musk, and Italian bergamot.

May Maelgwn of Mona be affected with mead, and affect us,
From the foaming mead-horns, with the choicest pure liquor,
Which the bees collect, and do not enjoy.
Mead distilled sparkling, its praise is everywhere.

— From the Book of Taliesin XIX, 550 C.E.

Art: Illumination from the Codex Manesse, 1310-40
