PATCHOULI OF THE UNDERWORLD
By Kévin Mathys
This is dark, carnal and animalic: a patchouli perfume with a musky sexuality, power, opulence. It captures the raw passion of Pluto, the darkness of the underworld; as well as the opulence of the hidden treasures of his kingdom, such as precious gems, minerals and glittering metals held deep within the earth’s core.
Pluto’s plight was to rule the UNDERWORLD: the final destination for the dead but also DEEP EARTH the place of riches and opulence abundant with precious jewels, oil, minerals and resources and the earth necessary for a bountiful harvest. Brother to the King of the Gods Jupiter, PLUTO was a powerful and magnetic personality.
This perfume was created with Persephone’s Patchouli as a pair. Two perfumers explores the central note of Patchouli through two lenses of the same story: that of Pluto and his Queen Persephone.
