SEΛENE (pronounced “Se-lee-nee”) is named after the eponymous ancient Greek mythological figure, the Titanian goddess of the moon, who was imagined driving her chariot across the heavens.
Manos Gerakinis wished to pay with this fragrance an olfactive homage to the unique charm of a Greek summer evening spent in an open air cinema. There, while viewing a film under the stars, one feels caressed by a plethora of diverse aromas that magically merge into one, as if fused together by the moonlight: citrus tree blossoms and leaves, serene woods, and night-blooming jasmine from the neighbouring trees and gardens, a delicious note of praline evoking the sweet treats that are being enjoyed while watching the movie, along with a musky, sensuous cloud echoing an ideal, warm and breezy, Athenian summer night.
