Colossus of Rhodes™ Perfume Oil:
The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This statue of the Greek Titan, Helios, was created around 285 BCE by the Greek sculptor, Chares to celebrate the victory of Rhodes over Cyprus. The statue stood on a pedestal in the harbor and rose over 107 feet tall. The Colossus was destroyed in 226 BCE by an earthquake that decimated much of Rhodes. The ruins lay for over 800 years were ancient historians remarked that visitors would come to touch the head and hands of the great statue.
Here in this scent I have tried to evoke the scents of ancient Rhodes, the smells of the city and harbor, the surrounding countryside: Dark mosses and lighter aquatic florals blend with reeds, Arabian sandalwood, dark woods and resins, ancient papyrus and vetiver. An earthy, mysterious, unisex blend that tips slightly to the masculine side of the scale.
All "Seven Wonders" are available in a sample set of 7 vials in the Themed Sample Section of the shop.
Perfume comes in a 1/3 oz. (9 ml) frosted cobalt blue roll-on bottle and comes ready for gift giving in a little fabric bag.
