My Article on Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh in Financial Times Magazine

When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary, his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11

My thoughts on the gifts of Magi through the prism of perfumery in the Financial Times Magazine How to Spend It (in December 21 issue.)

Also, this week I have very much enjoyed We Three Kings blogger project, which had nine different bloggers review fragrances that remind them of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
