Athanasia is based on an ancient perfume from bronze age Crete, approx 5500yrs old.
Sacred to the priestess of the temples and dedicated to the Goddess. I have name this perfume for the Goddess of the Double headed Axe, Athenasia, Goddess of the sacred feminine, of eternal life and immortality.
I have followed the original recipe as closely as possible, using a based rose petal oil which was stared over 30yrs ago. Into the base oil, ground frankincense, myrrh and fresh rose petals was infused and then added to a selection of aromatic and spice essential oils.
This is a wonderfully sensual oil that, like all perfume oils, can be a strong scent when first placed onto the skin, but then settles leaving a luxurious and magical aroma.
