Warm, musky, rich and honey like and somewhat oriental and earthy. Cinnamon has been known from remote antiquity. Native to South East Asia, its origin was mysterious in Europe until the sixteenth century and was imported to Egypt as early as 2000BC. It is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamon. So highly prized among ancient nations, it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and even for a god!
