Talk about buried treasure! An 1864 Civil War blockade runner called the Mary Celestia sank off the coast of Bermuda with a secret stash of luxury scents aboard. The beauty artifacts didn’t surface until 2011 where they were hand-delivered to Drom fragrance laboratories and chemically analyzed for modern use. Surprisingly, notes like grapefruit, rose, orange flower, rosewood, and amber are still very much in, as they were crafted by the godfather of modern perfumery, G.W. Septimus Piesse. Ahh, the smell of history! [InStyle]
