To make the Nose appear Beautiful.
Take one grain of musk, a scruple of spikenard, dried roses, and cloves, of each two drams, beat them together, with a little white sugar, and mix the whole with | | 161 a glass of white wine, then make up small boluses, and when you have occasion to use it take one, which you must dissolve in rose-water, hold a little to your nose, and wash it with the rose-water. It will remove all disagreeable impurities in the nose, and make the breath smell sweet.
