EGYPT is one of the most exclusive fragrances created by Albert Fouquet. In 1935, Albert decided to fulfill a promise made to visit Ahmed, a childhood friend, and accomplish one of his dreams at the same time. Albert was fascinated by ancient Egyptian culture and while visiting his friend in Egypt he could enjoy lengthy tours of the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as the temples of Luxor and Hatshepsut.
For Albert Fouquet, the visit was also an opportunity to travel to the birthplace of perfume. He wanted to research the essences that have been in use for thousands of years. He was also curious to discover what was in those extraordinarily aromatic jars offered to the gods to protect the pharaohs, or in the scents used to satisfy the revered Cleopatra.
This wonderful visit was enriched from the moment Albert passed through the doorway approaching Ahmed’s home. The impressive garden of his villa contained dozens of flowers that were unknown to Albert.
Albert was overwhelmed by new sensations and when he was unable to extend his already lengthy visit, he planned a second trip four months later with the express intention of finding a unique perfume.
After several weeks of intense work in the villa of Ahmed, Albert Fouquet selected the final details of a new formula after returning to his chateau in Paris. EGYPT became part of his exclusive and private perfume collection. It is such a pleasure for us to share the originality of the best perfumes created by Albert Fouquet and ensure they reach the hands of those fortunate enough to share his lifestyle.

If you bought a set of samples and want to order a full-sized bottle, use your promo code at checkout for $10 off your full-bottle purchase. The code will allow you to make any purchase on the website greater than $48 and includes gift, home products or the purchase of additional samples.

We work with our brand partners to give you a superior sampling experience. We will only offer samples that are packaged in 2ml. (approx) spray containers. The old "dipstick" samples are a horrible nightmare and tend to spill all over everything, making it difficult to use more than once. Since not all of our brand partners are offering this spray sample option, we unfortunately are limited to sampling the brands that currently offer this type of sample - which is many of them, but not all. As things change we will update the product listings accordingly.
You are welcome to try as many different samples as you would like, however, you will only receive the $10 promo code for purchasing 3 samples in a single order. You are welcome to purchase 2 samples, you just would not qualify for the promo credit offer. You can purchase 5 samples, and you get the one $10 promo code. If you purchase more than one 3-Sample Set, you’ll receive more than one credit. Just keep in mind that these credits cannot be stacked and applied toward the same bottle. Both promo codes would expire in the same 30 day period. Please refer to "Using the Promo Code" for details on what the promo code will cover.
In the NOTES section at checkout, select "send as gift" and we will package the samples with a printed gift card that contains the $10 gift code.
