Megalium, an ancient fragrance passed down through the ages, from a time when rose water flowed from fountains and balsams perfumed the lavish private lives of the Romans from their bathing rituals to their chambers and boudoirs.

Soft yet spicy notes of cinnamon and calamus blend with a redolent heart of pimiento berry and Bulgarian rose extract, drying down to a dramatic finish of myrrh and frankincense.

nutmeg essence from Moluccas
Indonesan pimento pepper essence

Scent&Chemistry on Carner's Megalium: 

"One of the most amazing perfume launches this year...The spicy oriental ingredient list sounds darker than it actually wears, and that is also due to the nice lift of the musk accord with a significant dose of the potent powdery fruity, woody-ambery shaded Nirvanolide musk and 2% of the red-fruity linear top-note musk Sylkolide, which together curb some aggressiveness of the cinnamon. 'Megalium' is a very beautiful and opulent composition, antique in conception, highly modern in its execution, very long-lasting with a massive silage and great projection: Clean and dirty all at once, cold incense smoke and warm woody-ambers, and most of all cinnamic in every respect. A hell of a perfume!"

... amazing how much work needs to be done to just put 'cinnamon' in the list of notes and how the aesthtic pyramid differs from technical skeletone of a fragrance.
