Late Summer in the Mediterranean is the height of the fig season, notably in Greece where figs have been revered for centuries. According to ancient Greek mythology, the first fig tree was created when the rebellious Sykeus was turned into the same by his mother, Gaia, Goddess of the Earth, saving him from the wrath of Zeus.
‘Athenean’ is a reworking of ‘Figuier’, one of the earlier scents in the collection. Here, the emphasis is on the fragrant wood of the fig tree. Aquatic green notes are balanced with warm, undertones of sandalwood, musk and amber.
