An excellent Perfume to be used when you are afraid of noxious Air.
To one dram of musk of Alexandria, add an equal quantity of ambergrease, two scruples of the oil of rhodium, and as much balsam of Peru; one dram of yellow sanders, half a dram of calamita, cinnamon, cloves and mace; when you have beaten them all together, put to them two drams of civet, then let the whole be put into a box and kept in your pocket.
