The Argos Artist Series and line of fragrances highlight great artists in history who have created amazing works inspired by Greek/Roman mythology themes. The 2nd artist to be featured with our new fragrance is the John William Waterhouse.
John Waterhouse was an English painter known for embracing the Pre-Raphaelite painting style and ancient Greek mythology subject matter.
According to legend Adonis the Greek god of beauty, desire, and rebirth, would tragically die while hunting. Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) would rush to his side, cutting herself on a thorn from a rose bush. The rose, a symbol of Aphrodite, created pure, and white was now a brilliant crimson shade of red, stained by her blood. A kiss from the goddess Aphrodite would awaken Adonis. A kiss from the goddess Aphrodite would awaken Adonis; thus, the circle of life would continue.
This romantic scent is both opulent and timeless. Argos ADONIS AWAKENS opens with Bright Bergamot, Grapefruit, and Pink Peppercorn. It transitions beautifully into a bouquet of Bulgarian Rose, Sambac Jasmine, Creamy Vanilla, Chestnut, and Juicy Raspberry. Base notes of Mysore Sandalwood, Cashmere Wood, and Rose Absolute produce a strikingly provocative and alluring fragrance.
