I agree with the reviewer whitecontess: this is a interesting scent but it doesn't say "perfume" to me. Perhaps better suited for a man. Has the name suggests it has a mysterious quality to it but not alluring. Its musty and aromatic but not pretty.

Mystra is a well crafted incensy perfume. I am proud this creation comes from a Greek Australian company, as I have linked incense with spirituality, and would like to trace it in my Greek origin.

The ingredients are simple, but lovely. Very natural, as if you picked them up from nature, with your hands. The mastic tone is reminiscent of the Greek ground and flavours blended with the incense, which is lingering softly; the perfume finishes with a beautiful subtle ambery drydown. It feels like you are in a Greek orchard with a little chapel in the middle, at the top of a hill, overlooking the sea...

It is very ethereal, and stays close to the skin. It's not a spray, and actually I respect this attitude to nature and ecology. Mystra is a sacred place, and the perfume a genuine representative- humble, deep, evocative.

This fragrance smells as if we have broken into King Tut's Tomb!
It is very exotic and beautiful. Spices mixed with parchment paper.
The first whiff is the scent you would find upon opening a long-lost scroll.
Although this scent is unique, I would find it difficult to wear. I want to smell like a beautiful woman, not a Mummy!
