Death on the Nile (1978)

deathonthenile_bornunicorn (2)There are two perfume bottles in Colonel Race’s cabin. Despite the ribbons in different colours, I think they are the same bottle – Penhaligon’s Hammam Bouquet.

penhaligonshammambouquet_bornunicornThe woody floral perfume was created in 1872 by William Penhaligon, who found inspiration in the Turkish baths which at the time were located in Jermyn Street, London.

The bottle above has the old packaging, where the Turkish star and crescent design is a nod to its main inspiration.
