Machu-Pichu, heart of the Inca Empire, May 1462: Preparations for the Inti Raymi festival are under way. The monsoon is over and the peasants are bringing gifts. It is customary that a shaman officiates over the grand ceremony where the Sun and Gold, both symbols of masculinity are worshipped. King Yupan points out that this year will be ruled by the moon and silver, symbols of femininity and has decreed that a priestess shall preside over the celebrations. But to whom will the honour be given, which priestess can create the bond between the Gods and the Kingdom? King Yupan decides to choose between the priestesses according to the perfume each one wears, evoking as though by magic the entire territory of the Inca people. A young lady is chosen for her perfectly balanced fragrance but the source of her skill is unknown. She recounts that she has been inspired by numerous aromas found in the circular terracing over which the Incas possess such mastery. Its citrus head notes come from oranges bursting with ripeness from the sun God; the heart notes are carried by the Pacific sea spray while the base notes blends with chocolate, a fruit of the Inca people's commercial exchanges with Amazonia and Guyana. In the final moments of her ritual dance, the priestess performs a graceful movement of the arms and, with a sculpted flask, releases upwards a cloud that perfumes the air to the very edges of the sanctuary with her magnificent fragrance. The celebration is a resounding success and the formula jealously guarded so that every subsequent Moon year the perfume will be used uniquely to embalm the sanctuary. The Gods fell under its charm and blessed the land with clement weather to assure abundant crops year after year. Centuries later a tomb was discovered, decorated with reliefs of high religious rank and inside the sarcophagus... the body of a priestess. She is known as the 'Lady of Cao' and has been conferred the highest rank in honour of her beauty, her courage and her piety. It has been said that, on opening the sarcophagus, archaeologists were surprised by a magnificent fragrance from ages gone by. You, too, will bring this story back to life just by opening the box
