Natural essence inspired by ancient European myths, histories and archetypes. Hedonism - a heady, fruity citrus floral fragrance with hints of woods and resins, which is subtly sweet yet very fresh. It is a fragrance made with only the finest natural essential oils and ingredients, that are blended into a base of fermented alcohol and bottled in a handmade Czech glass vial with an atomizer.
Hedonism is the pursuit of pleasure, pleasure of mind, body and senses. It is the desire to feel good and be happy. Be satiated. And satisfied. Imagine an antique bacchanalia, where wine flows freely and food, fruits and delicacies are in abundance, while the patricians indulge in few smidgens of poppy tears. It is in a large villa with a blooming gardens and halls adorned with soft draperies and fresh cut flowers. You bite into a piece of orange fruit, its juice trickling down your chin and you laugh, because why not? Stumbling merrily, the guests stain their togas with wine, walking on rose petals and brushing against jasmine blossoms, honeysuckle and gardenia flowers which decorate the villa in large vases and pots. It is lavish and dazzling and they hope it will never end.
This is Hedonism. It is to experience. It is freedom.
This essence captures this splendor in initial fruity tones of citrus, orange, grapefruit and bergamot seamlessly blended with fragrances of exotic flowers, jasmine, frangipani, ylang ylang, rose and honeysuckle to create a dazzling feeling, which spirals up and envelops the wearer. And then, at the high point a sense of calm and satiety comes in the form of more subdued tones of labdanum, myrrh and slight powdery tones of orris, tonka and palo santo. It signifies the ability to experience life and transcend the ordinary.
