Fragrance notes: sandalwood, jasmine, orange
The concept of the underworld has appeared in mythology in cultures as diverse as the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Mayans, and Vikings. Even in modern times, most religions maintain a concept of an underworld afterlife. The underworld varies between traditions, but most view it as a supernatural land of the dead, a place of judgement, a place for heroes, and a place for epic journeys. The underworld is not the end but rather a new beginning. The ancient Egyptians revered and depicted the underworld in elaborate artwork on tombs and statues for thousands of years. A place that awaited commoners and pharaohs alike. Funerary rites were elaborate affairs including mummification, spell casting, offerings to the gods, as well as grave goods that a person would require for their journey into the afterlife.
Inspired by the Egyptian underworld, this fragrance begins with a base of sandalwood with its soft, woody, and slightly musky aroma. This most luxurious botanical ingredient is widely used in perfumery, incense, and ritual anointing oils. Building on the base of sandalwood is a sweet floral layer of stress-reducing jasmine which represents the important role that flowers play in offerings made to the gods. No rite of passage would be complete without nourishment for the journey. A hint of juicy orange citrus tops off this aromatic journey to the underworld. Infused with natural essential oils, this fragrance is fit for a pharaoh.
