Similar in style & identity to a well known fragrance - Penhaligon's 'Halfeti'
Artemis is the Olympian goddess of the hunt, the moon, and chastity; in time, she also became associated with childbirth and nature. No more than few days old, she helped her mother Leto give birth to her twin brother Apollo. Artemis was very protective of her and her priestesses’ innocence. Consequently, she wasn’t very nice when some of them weren’t so careful.
Halfeti takes inspiration from the precious goods traded by Turkey in times of old, the exotic flowers, pungent spices, soft leather and precious materials around the Turkish village of Halfeti and the rare black roses that thrive and bloom in Turkey’s heat along the coast of the Euphrates river. This oil opens with a warm union of citruses, herbs and spices that blend bergamot and grapefruit with saffron, cardamom, artemisia and cypress leaf. The middle notes develop with floral jasmine and Bulgarian rose mingling with tones of nutmeg, while the base brings us the delicious warm aromas of leather, precious oud, cedar, sandalwood, amber, musk, Tonka bean, vanilla and musk.
