 “Heracles EDT 7%
The Legend: Heracles (Hercules in the Roman) was the son of Zeus and Alcmena (the last mortal woman Zeus embraced). He was from birth stronger than a full grown man, and strangled two serpents Hera sent to kill him and his mortal twin brother. He is the most famous of the Greek heroes. He completed Twelve Labors, vanquished many a monster and villain ravaging his Greek homeland (and Asia Minor). He went to the edge of the world for one of them and descended into Hades for another. There was nothing that he could not do. He married many times and had many affairs and countless offspring. One feat (often called his Thirteenth Labor) was siring 51 sons on the 49 of the 50 daughters of Thespius in a single night! He was a legendary lover, a true hero and an unstoppable fighter. He eventually ascended into Heaven (Olympus) and, forgiven by Hera, was wed to Hebe (goddess of youth) and became an immortal.
 “The Fragrance: A dry spicy and clean woody opening gives way to a heart of flowers, both elegant and sensual. A beautiful essay in contrasts between vigor, strength and loving tenderness; this EDT is strong, but never overbearing. A finish of sweet resins, musky woods and seeds is balanced by warmth and a subtle oriental accord of sandalwood and amber, kissed with cassis leaves. A scent that is at once sexy and seductive, like a passionate lover clad only in a lion’s skin…”

 “Phoebe EDP 11%
The Legend: Phoebe was from an older race of Gods called the Titans. The last offspring of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Ouranos (Father Sky), they were twelve in number. The were the first “gods” and ruled during the Golden Age of Mankind. Phoebe was “radiant” and was the original goddess of the Moon and lit up the night sky. She married her brother Coeus and had two daughters Asteria (mother of Hecate, goddess of witchcraft) and Leto (the mother of Apollo and Artemis). In the War of the Titans, she sided with her brothers and sisters against the Olympians and was, after their defeat, confined in Tartaros (the deepest darkest pit in Hades).
 “The Fragrance: A bright blend of greens, and warm blossoms with a hint of spice greets the nose, invigorating and intoxicating all at once. A thick heady chorus of flowers begins to sing, weaving its spell of sensuality and mystery. Warm and sexy yet refined, Phoebe leans more towards the feminine but is utterly unisex. Osmanthus is the star here, majestic she is surrounded by flowery resins, giving an air of incense, vanilla and woody musk. A regal scent for those in touch with their own divinity…”
