GREEN AFRICAN MUSK is the fragrance of kings, It is a fresh crisp and light musk fragrance with fruity undertones.
The fragrance lasts longer. The GREEN AFRICAN MUSK is a gift from the great king Akachi to the whole world.
There was a beautiful village named Green, in Africa, and there lived many beautiful people. They had some
traditions which made them unique. Every year they had to put mask on face and dance and sing-song. Their face
was hidden behind the masks, so no one can see each other. Every king had to give fragrance to the new one.
The reason behind wearing masks was that no one can recognize each other, and they only can recognize the leader
through a special kind of fragrance. The person who recognizes the leader will be the new leader. This time Akachi,
a poor farmer, recognize the leader by his fragrance, and he got the leadership now Akachi was the new leader of
Village, and he introduced all the good ideas and made the Village a beautiful village. The fragrance was his
fragrance now, but he gave the fragrance to the poor, and the fragrance of the leader became the fragrance of
Africa and known as GREEN AFRICAN MUSK. People were so happy with Akachi and made him Leader for the rest of
life. The villagers lived happily ever after.

I was invited for a routine smear test before my 25th birthday and went straight away. I was a bit
apprehensive but my Mum had talked me through what would happen. I didn’t have any symptoms so had no
reason to think that anything was going to be wrong however I started to feel worried and anxious shortly
after I received a letter inviting me to attend a colposcopy. I wasn’t sure what all the terminology on the letter
meant, things like ‘HPV’.
Colposcopy was really tough as I sensed that the staff were concerned about me. They took a biopsy and just
weeks later I was called in to receive the devastating news that I had cervical cancer – stage 1b. I remember
being in the waiting room afterwards and I couldn’t speak. I just wanted to know what was going to happen
next. I was given two treatment options; to either have a hysterectomy or trachelectomy. I chose to have a
trachelectomy because I want to have children in the future, so it was a really easy decision for me to make. I
would say for other women deciding on a course of treatment that it depends on what stage of life they're at.
If I had children already I probably would have had a hysterectomy but I wanted to try and keep my fertility
and I was so lucky that my consultant did everything she could so that this could happen.
I had chemotherapy first after being advised by my consultant this would more likely stop the cancer from
coming back. I had three rounds of chemotherapy in three week intervals. The worst part was definitely losing
my hair, I was more upset about this than anything else.
After the chemotherapy I had the trachelectomy treatment via robotics. My Dad came with me as I wanted
the stronger, less emotional parent to sit with me until my surgery time. It was really emotional as this was
the first time I had seen my Dad cry. One of the hardest things for me during my treatment was for my little
sister, who was two years old, to understand why I had lost my hair, why I was wearing a blond wig and the
scars that I had.
The day I was given the all-clear on the 28th November I will remember forever as probably the happiest day
of my life so far. I don’t think the experience had quite sunk in as it all happened so fast. It’s been nearly two
years since I got the all-clear and finished my treatment but it can be hard for others to understand that it still
really affects me. I suffer with side effects of my treatment and get tired very easily (and work one day a week
from home), my feet can give me cramp-like symptoms too but they’re a small price to pay! I now have 3
month check-ups with the same consultant I had during my treatment, with regular smear tests and a yearly
MRI scan. – Stephanie
