CHORUS APHRODISIA ❦ parfum extrait
The Greeks referred to plants that stirred desire and enhanced attraction as Chorus aphrodisia, or 'the chorus of Aphrodite's plants'. Known to the Romans as agents of Venus, these plants were mystical gifts from the Great Goddess herself, capable of stimulating the senses and heightening the human experience of love and desire with an intensity that could match that of the Gods'.
A deeply resinous base accord made with handmade tinctures of myrrh, ambrette seed, bourbon vanilla beans, and benzoin. A rich and slightly sweet dark cocoa absolute is balanced with notes of wood and sultry flowers with a hint of spice.
Top Notes: blood cedar, rosewater, cardamom
Middle Notes: jasmine, cocoa
Base Notes: myrrh, benzoin, ambrette seed, bourbon vanilla, vetiver

BLOOD OF BACCHUS ❦ parfum onguent - aphrodisiac balm
Bacchus, the Roman god (Greek - Dionysus) of fruiting orchards, fertility, and wine-soaked frenzy.

HEDONE ❦ warming massage oil
Hedone — "pleasure". Born of Eros (passion, desire, love) and Psyche (the soul), this Greek goddess personified the spirit of pleasure and the enjoyment of physical and sensual delights. Hedonism was not only important in Ancient Greek philosophy, but the idea that there may be no greater good than the pursuit of pleasure remains an important philosophical tenet today.
Pursue your own pleasure with this warming massage oil.
Ingredients: sweet almond, apricot kernel, and sandalwood nut oil infused with Ceylon cinnamon bark & kava kava root, and essential oil blend of cocoa, cinnamon, and saffron.
VENUS EBRIA ❦ aphrodisiac incense cones
Originally a goddess of the garden, Venus was charged with overseeing matters of verdure and fertility, gifting the devoted with growth, abundance, and ripe and luxurious fruits. Steps away from her fertile garden laid the garden of pleasure, however, and as it became evident that love, desire, and pleasure would too lead to fertility and life, Venus' realm was expanded. She became known as Venus ebria, or 'the drunken Venus', and her orchard was no longer but a place of mere cultivation but also one of desire, where intoxicatingly perfumed flowers and aromatic spices were planted to inspire love, and where lovers could allow free rein to their desires.
Charcoal cones are soaked in handmade tinctures of myrrh, ambrette seed, and benzoin and perfumed with oils of saffron, styrax, rose, sandalwood, and spices.
20 black perfumed incense cones in a matte black pyramid-shaped box. Burn on a heat-resistant surface.
