HADES: A COLOGNE OF THE UNDERWORLD
O, my child!
Led upward by the God of ghosts and dreams. — Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Stolen from her mother Demeter by the God of the Underworld, Persephone ate the seeds of a pomegranate seed which bound her to Hades for the Winter months. In the Spring when she can once again frolic with Demeter, the grains and flowers bloom once more.
Hades contains notes of belladonna, amber, oak moss, orris, opium, cypress, and narcissus. The scent has a dream like quality and smells more like silver stardust than death and decay.
All perfume couples featured in the Literary Lovers Collection are designed to be worn on their own or layered with their mate. To find Persephone or purchase the set, please visit the Literary Lovers page.
*The Belladonna is a fragrance oil so it is safe to wear.*
