ATHENS SCENTED CANDLE
[The eye of Greece, mother of arts and eloquence]
"I think that Athens lies beyond good and evil, beyond beauty and ugliness. I don't think cities are supposed to be beautiful anyway; I think they are supposed to be interesting. They're supposed to be alive. Athens is definitely alive." Afroditi Panagiotakou.
Our ATHENS accord immortalises the juxtaposition of ancient and contemporary - a graceful clash of historical charm and renewed creative energy. It is an ode to the city's resilience and recent rise.
The fragrance is based on a walk through Plaka - an Athenian neighbourhood that sits beneath the shadows of the Acropolis and its ancient temples. What one notices in Athens is that the sun sets differently. Hazy purple and pink hues adorn the Athenian summer sky, painting it the most vibrant of violets. The warm summer air is sweetened by hints of jasmine and night elm as people water and tend to their gardens in the evening. Livani grounds the accord - a final nod to the city's sacred Byzantine history and culture.
