Little is known about Persephone's life when reunited with her mother, but much is known about her life as Queen of the Underworld. She was no shrinking violet content to stay at her husband's heel. She was both feared and revered in her own right and not shy about interfering in the matters of mortals and gods. In the dark of the year we honor the dark lady.
The scent for Persephone came about when a customer was writing me about how much she loved my rose blends in the past. I decided to give it another go. To acknowledge Persephone's innocence and time in the sun I blended notes of velvet roses, green leaves, then I added notes from the fruits of her downfall ripe juicy pomegranates and figs, and notes to symbolize her rule; base notes of clove and soft, warm honeyed leather. The end result is a highly uncommon, but very beautifully feminine scent.
Next to Haunted this is the MOST floral scent I have ever done, and to those that fear strong leather/tannin notes as in Black No1. ; fear not this is a very soft earthly leather that melts into the blend more as a mysterious base than "HI I'M LEATHER".
I hope you love it as much as I do (and I typically hate floral ANYTHING)!
