A mystical fragrance that travels through time
[short review]
The philosopher known as Ibn Sīnā, or by the Latin name Avicenna, was a Persian physician, astronomer, and thinker, who wrote several fundamental treatises on a variety of subjects, but essentially on themes of philosophy and medicine. At the age of eighteen, it was said that there was nothing he had not already learned. He became the Islamic Golden Age most followed and studied scholar and lived in the tenth and eleventh centuries of our era.
Myrrh is a resin obtained from the stem of a spiny tree (Commiphora myrrha), with red/yellow flowers and spiky fruits. The gum extracted in northeastern Africa, namely in Somalia, is usually more valued. To obtain the aromatic resin, locals cut the myrrh trees at harvest time and collect the milky and sticky juice that drips from the bark. After exposure to the dryness of the middle eastern sun, myrrh dyes and hardens into grains the size of a reddish-brown berry.
The beginning of its use coincides with the primordial ages of several ancient Middle East civilizations. It was indispensable practices of religion, of medicine, and of aromatherapy nature. Its musky spirals of smoke since long ago have been associated with the mystics of embalming, seduction, perfumery, and several other different rituals across different regions.
Common myrrh has a resinous, woody, and slightly medicinal aroma. Depending on its nature and treatment, the myrrh scent can vary from bitter and astringent to hot, comfortable, and sweet. It has always been considered a cooling fragrance. The resin - commonly preferred in perfumery over the more medicinal essential oil - tends to smell smokier, sweeter, and smoother.

Annette Neuffer masterfully blended Avicenna's secrets, mysticism through time, and Somali myrrh resins with exquisite spices, exotic and fragrant roses, precious woods, and soft amber. As a result, one of the most dramatically alluring and intoxicating oriental perfumes has been revealed five years ago. Upon first smell, I felt embraced by the loving arms of Sherazade in a never-ending enchanting tale. This perfume relates more to wizardry and alchemy than to chemistry.
Trivial info like enormous longevity, great sillage, and strong projection, seems almost unnecessary.

I thank all those who contributed for me to discover this masterpiece.

The stuff that perfumed dreams are made of. ...
Upon spraying I smell rose, myrrh and beeswax, deep and sweet with a little fresh, green twang from the petitgrain and citrus. As it warms on my skin the cinnamon and a little cardamon show themselves along with more resins and creamy sandalwood - everything starts to warm up and becomes richer - oh yes, the richness in this perfume is gorgeous, it’s intoxicating. I’m carried away into my own imagined realms of history; the silk roads and spice routes, European castles with exquisite gardens. Avicenna Myrrha Mystica speaks to me of Medieval courtly opulence, beauty, splendour and warmth. Who would smell like this - a Lady in fine velvet, with a benevolent smile, much loved by her courtiers. She is being serenaded by the sweetest troubadours in the land and the warm evening breeze carries the scent of roses from the gardens. They are subtle but deep, red velvety roses couched amongst rich balsamic incense resins and dusted with exotic spices.
This is the stuff that perfumed dreams are made of and I really want it in my collection.

I had heard a lot about her from the perfumer Annette Neuffer. An artist with an unmistakable signature and a high recognition effect. A woman who gives wings to fragrances and turns them into liquid magic. Fragrances that fascinate and enchant and take you on a wonderful journey into the deep-emotional soul of Annette Neuffer.

If Myrrha Mystica were an animal to me, it would have the shape of a hawk for me. This fragrance floats on the skin, not to say he literally glides over her. A soft glide distinguishes this fragrance. He is strong, supple, mysterious and unerring in attacking the soul of the wearer.

Myrrha Mystica launches its elegant attack with a spicy sweetness of orange, bergamot, petitgrain and cinnamon.
Honey tangerine and saffron are added, letting the scent spread a sensual aura at the very beginning. Various spices such as ginger, cardamom and pepper permeate the perfume and make a gentle fire burn out of cozy warmth.

Somali myrrh and an army of many roses and orange blossoms orbit Myrrha Mystica and give the fragrance an elegant sublimity and its oriental temperament. Finest incense and elemihar interweave this all to a delicate veil.

Creamy Opoponax in combination with Siam Benzoin and Beeswax give you the feeling of fragrance that would literally melt on your skin. Warm tones of bourbon vanilla, sandalwood and labdanum ultimately crown this masterpiece and allow this fragrance to rise to unimaginable heights. This fragrance hovers over its carrier like an oriental hunting falcon. Indescribably soft and majestic in its projection and sillage.

Conclusion
Myrrtha Mystica is a spicy oriental dream wrapped in a plumage of resinous-golden feathers. A fragrance that arouses longing and takes you under its wings on a wonderful journey into the Olympus of Neuffer fragrances.

Occupation comes from vocation, so they say. In the case of Annette Neuffer, this is definitely true. In each of her fragrances you can feel her soul and her deep passion for her work. An unmistakable handwriting runs through all her creations and works like a red thread. An incredible softness and harmony surrounds each of her works, turning it into fluid history and art. Annette Neuffer has shown me her soul and she is truly wonderful.

Hereby I would like to thank Annette Neuffer herself for providing her complete collection and works. I am deeply impressed!

Thank you...
