‏THE MIRA TAKLA TRAGEDY. Cairo-

‏born Egyptian Parliamentarian and

‏Egyptologist Mira Takla created the

‏perfume “Vallee des Rois” (Valley of

‏the Kings) in 1988 after translating

‏heiroglyphic perfume formulas from

‏temple walls at Edfu, Dendera and Philae. Her wish to cast a light on the

‏opulence and genius of ancient

‏Egyptian dynasties resulted in this

‏perfume which was sold exclusively

‏through Harrods in London and

‏Galleries Lafayette in Paris. However,

‏its commercial life was short lived.

‏Takla spent $1.3M on organising a

‏titanic PR event for the ‘Vallee des

‏Rois’ launch; inviting 30 renowned

‏beauty and fashion journalists from

‏the UK on a 5 night adventure staying

‏at the celubrious Heliopolis Sheraton

‏Hotel northeast of Cairo. Takla spent

‏months planning a luxury cruise

‏down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan,

‏where - on an island in the middle of

‏the Nile - bottles of perfume had

‏been hidden in the bullrushes for

‏the visiting beauty writers to

‏discover. The press jaunt was set to

‏culminate in a lavish banquet in the

‏Aida ballroom of the Marriot Hotel in

‏Cairo. Guests at the dinner were to be

‏showered with gifts at the event,

‏including the sumptuously packaged

‏perfume. These plans, however, never came to fruition. Just 4 hours after

‏checking into the Heliopolis Sheraton

‏Hotel, embers from an outdoor open-

‏air fire pit ignited a canopy swathed

‏in fabric. With gusting desert winds

‏that fanned the flames, the entire

‏Hotel soon caught alight, and flames

‏lapped from windows on every floor.

‏In an era devoid of smoke detectors

‏and sprinkler systems, pandemonium

‏broke out as hotel guests fled for

‏their lives; the entire hotel now

‏ablaze. Tragically, when the flames

‏were finally quashed, 19 people had

‏perished, including 3 journalists from

‏Takla's party. The lives of the three


‏journalists, the hundreds of

‏thousands of pounds worth of lost

‏possessions and the investment of

‏more than $3 million dollars in the

‏perfume by Mira Takla meant that the

‏launch of the fragrance was also

‏quashed, and the scent never

‏reached its full commercial potential

‏before being retired shortly after.

‏Bottles of “Vallee des Rois” are scant

‏and command stratospheric prices

‏on the internet.
