A restored mosaic from a prominent house in Herculaneum, featuring Poseidon and his wife Salacia (deities known in Greece as Neptune and Amphitrite) .

Perfume Oil: Salacia's Silken Stolla

(Salacia was a sea goddess and the wife of Neptune, who had sent a dolphin to coerce her to follow and marry him)

Thyme honey, a rich herbal and sweet-wood aroma reminiscent of honey made from the thyme flowers bees love (which is still produced in Sicily and Greece). An all-natural perfume. Very thick, like warm honey. All fragrance components in this blend are natural botanicals.

(Please note: As we only use vegan ingredients, this is not made from any real honey derivative, but our own natural "honey" blend which we think has the fragrant properties similar to honey. It will not smell quite like honey fragrance oils or honey/beeswax absolutes)

Centering around Campania prior to 62CE, this collection is based on actual ancient Roman perfumes and fragrant flora, with a few slight variations added in. Some ingredients which were often used as skin scents, such as basil and labdanum, are in several blends, and we chose mostly plants native to the region, even though they did have imported light botanicals, resins, and other fragrant ingredients once trade was established with distant lands (or they went over and conquered...). While these fragrances do contain a carrier of isopropyl myristate, none of the fragrance ingredients are synthetic.This does mean a heightened chance for skin sensitivity, and we recommend spot testing prior to wearing.

Please see the Perfume category page for information about our blends and resting recommendations.

Roll-on bottles are available in 1.5ml, 5ml (0.169 fl oz / 1.35 dram), and 10ml (0.338 fl oz / 2.70 dram).
