This creation was inspired by the marvelous Mediterranean landscape surrounded by white beaches and high cliffs, that rear up out of the transparent and sparkling waters of the sea around the island of Cyprus, mythical birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. The beautiful goddess represents the wild and uncontrollable power of love, passion and seduction, capable of uniting and embracing elements of opposing natures, man and woman, strength and kindness, passion and sweetness.
She is capable of enchanting, and of driving hearts to the most unrestrained and confessable feelings.
Camped around a large bonfire, on the plateau next to the ruins of Paphos, where Aphrodite first appeared, we find ourselves in front of a crystalline, azure sea, enveloped by the persuasive scents and intoxicating perfumes of a lush and wild nature, as seductive and beguiling as the beautiful aphrodite herself. Our minds are stunned by so much wonder and our senses let themselves be transported far away in ecstasy, to the lively sound of the wood crackling in the fire.
The creation opens with a spicy floral aroma, with a hypnotic touch of mystery. Lilac Flowers embrace pink peppercorns and then settle mellowly on the strong sweetness of Vanilla Berries, emphasized by White Peach and White Currents. This immediate, fascinating bouquet leads straight to the depths of the inner self. It rediscovers an ancestral and primaeval force founded on the opulence of magical and bewitching flowers like Tuberose Absolute, in counterpoint to Neroli and Iris, and in turn sweetened by the Lily of the Valley and Geranium that surround the precious seductive pheromone. A weapon as subtle and as it is powerful, capable of governing the hearts of those around us. The scent is rooted on a sturdy foundation of woods where Patchouli stands out as a powerful aphrodisiac and Ebony, softened by the delicacy of Sandalwood and White Musk, is emphasized by the sweaty note of Gray Amber which emanates a powerful pherormone of love. The instinct of enchanting seduction, is contained within this precious extract of oblivion and ecstasy.
