First of all, citing wikipedia as a credible source in an argument is just a bad move. A little research shows that there are errors in the wiki article.
For instance, the wiki article states "In ancient times people used herbs and spices, like almond, coriander, myrtle, conifer resin, bergamot, as well as flowers.". The webpage that the wiki article cites and where the information was taken almost verbatim states ". . . but these are fresher ones, smelling of herbs and spices, like almond, coriander, myrtle, conifer resin, bergamot — and not flowers," http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,...ce/archaeology
Secondly, it seems that ancient perfumes that were used in Mesopotamia (and were likely items of trade within the civilizations within the Near East) were incense-y type frags as the article in American Journal of Archaeology
, (Vol. 104, No. 2 (Apr., 2000), pp. 277-308) "The Production of Perfumes in Antiquity: The Cases of Delos and Paestum" by Jean-Pierre Brun indicates.
"Administrative archives from the 18th century B.C. show that a Lit raqqu (perfume maker) named Nfir-ili received filtered sesame oil and delivered scented oils in return.2 The scented oils were aromatized with myrtle, cypress, opopanax, odorous reed, and some oils that remain a mystery: supalum and tamrirum oils, and oil of Mari. These tablets document the use of several fragrant plants, including galbanum (from the umbelliferae family), storax (which produces a balsam used as a pungent-smelling fixative), and labdanum which is derived from various species of rockrose." http://www.jstor.org/stable/507452
Furthermore, page 48 of "An Ancient Egyptian Herbal" by Egyptologist Dr. Lise Manniche describes a popular Egyptian perfume made in the city of Mende which consisted of "balanos oil, myrrh and resin (Pliny, NH XIII.ii)" Ms Manniche then describes another conconction called Metopion that was made up of "the oil of bitter almonds and unripe olives scented with cardmon, sweet rush, sweet flag, honey, wine, myrrh, seed of balsamum, galbanum and turpentine resin . . .the best Metopion smelt more of cardmon and myrrh than of galbanum (p50)."
Having smelt Miglin Pheromone (I'm wearing a small amount as I write) I can hazard a pretty good guess that ancient Egyptian perfumes smelt NOTHING like this bland, very late twentieth century concoction.
