Helios Parfum is a scented exploration of the relationship between our local star, the Sun and Earth in an alchemical, solid natural perfume. A fusion of Jasmine Absolute, Clove, Nutmeg, Mandarine, Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang are carried in hand-harvested beeswax and Sweet Almond oil.
Helios Parfum explores the interrelationship between the Earth and the Sun and interprets our metaphoric inner relationships with these symbols. Earth is grounded, nurturing, sensual, the senses, solid, unmoving, fecund; a paradisial ship of life entwined with the Sun, in orbit around it and constantly relating to it.
Helios is the young Greek god of the sun. He is the son of Hyperion and Theia. Each morning at dawn he rises from the ocean in the east and rides in his chariot, pulled by four horses – Pyrois, Eos, Aethon and Phlegon — through the sky, to descend at night in the west. It is the object of fire that dominates every day of our human existence. No life on Earth is possible without its warming light and photosynthesis that create the energy and oxygen most life here depends on.
Sunlight is also the only “foreigner” – apart from meteorites and other space debris -to enter the Earth’s atmosphere. The beauty of our existence and it’s perfection, is that it is also at exactly the right distance from Earth not to engulf us in it’s heat. Perfection in relationship balance.
So we also each have our own inner fire and solar force represented by the Sun. Movement and energy, strength, courage, transformation, gold, ruby and passion. These elements are combined in a perfume to fully explore this interplay in ourselves and connect us to our own inner Truth of fire and gold in a new and balanced way.
“The radiations that pour upon the earth cause the biosphere to take on properties unknown to lifeless planetary surfaces, and thus transform the face of the earth. Activated by radiation, the matter of the biosphere collects and redistributes solar energy, and converts it ultimately into free energy capable of doing work on earth.”
– Vladimir Vernadsky
