Argos DANAË Perfume
DANAË is a captivating fragrance within the Argo Artist Series I. It is inspired by an oil painting by Gustav Klimt, created in 1907. An example of Symbolism, Danaë was a popular subject in the early 1900s for many artists; she was used as the quintessential symbol of divine love and transcendence.
The legend goes that while imprisoned by her father Acrisius, King of Argos, in a tower of bronze, Danaë was visited by Zeus (Jupiter to the Romans), symbolized here as the golden rain flowing between her legs. It is apparent from the subject's face that she is aroused by the golden stream. In this work, she is curled in a royal purple veil which refers to her imperial lineage. Sometime after her celestial visitation, she gave birth to a son, Perseus, cited later in Greek mythology for slaying the Gorgon Medusa and rescuing Andromeda.
In this fragrant journey, Danaë is a Sensual and Divine masterpiece that arouses the senses. It opens with the luminosity of Bright Bergamot and Sicilian Lemon, setting the stage for a seductive interlude with Spicy Pink Peppercorn, Deep Gaiac, Cedar & Cashmere Wood. As the fragrance lingers, it casts a spell with enduring base notes of Sweet & Sticky Cistus, Spicy Patchouli, Mysore Sandalwood, and Intoxicating Musk.
