Hatsepsut's Perfume to be Re-Created

A team from Bonn University has extracted what is believed to be the residue of perfume from a metal jar belonging to Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt's 18th Dynasty. They are currently trying to identify and "re-create" the perfume.

The article also goes on to state that Hatshepsut's mummy was positively identified in 2007, but my understanding is that the identification is not so posititve.

Here is a link to the story.
