Wienerblut Elysion – Eau de Parfum – 100ml

Spring of 1902, the Vienna Secession hosts an exhibition dedicated to Ludwig Van Beethoven, who is worshipped as a visionary hero among the newly formed utopian group of artists. For this occasion the artist Gustav Klimt creates a monumental, 34-meters long cycle of paintings that stretches across three walls. The Frieze, a visualization of mankind´s struggle for happiness, is an allegory of Richard Wagner´s interpretation of Beethoven´s Ninth Symphony. The innovative and bold depictions are characterized as "shameless, pathological and obscene" by contemporary critics. This olfactory representation of the Beethoven Frieze takes inspiration from the two contrasting poles of the cycle, the "hostile forces" on the middle wall and the "ideal realm" on the right wall, two concepts that refer to Greek mythology.
In Greek mythology, originally the paradise to which heroes on whom the gods conferred immortality were sent, the Elysian Plain was a land of perfect happiness at the end of the Earth, on the banks of the Oceanus. In Gustav Klimt´s painting this takes form as the floating angels, longing for love and happiness, findinf their way to a female figure with a lyre, who embodies poetry. Five women posed one behind the other in animated gesture represent the arts, pointing to the realm of ideas, ideals, and happiness, and here pointing specifically to the final chorus of the 9th Symphony, the chant with Schiller's text "Joy, lovely spark of heaven's fire, this embrace for all the world". In the blissful kiss, a couple sinks into a paradisiacal environment.

A fragrance as intangible as Klimt´s golden vision of the Elysion Fields – “an ideal realm, wherein alone we can find pure joy, pure happiness, pure love". Elysion wears like a subtle, immaterial cloak of bright light, verdant freshness and subdued florality. This olfactory representation of Gustav Klimt's Beethoven Frieze – a monumental 34-meter-long painting cycle honoring Ludwig van Beethoven – tells the story of the right side of the painting, representing the "ideal realm", full of angels, joy, love and happiness.
Experience the captivating world with Elysion, an exquisite perfume that will enchant your senses with its unique blend of notes. This masterful fragrance combines the refreshing scent of cedrat, the soothing aroma of angelica root, and the delicate essence of fig leaf. As you delve deeper into the fragrance, you'll be greeted by the subtle warmth of red rpepper and the intoxicating allure of mimosa absolute. The floral elegance of water jasmine adds a touch of sophistication, while the mysterious iso E super creates an intriguing aura around you. As the fragrance settles on your skin, the rich and sensual notes of amber and musk emerge, leaving a trail of irresistible allure. The final touch of cedarwood adds depth and a hint of bright yet woody sophistication to this enchanting composition. Elysion is more than just a perfume; it is an olfactory journey that transports you to a realm of pure bliss. With its harmonious blend of notes, this fragrance is designed to evoke feelings of confidence, joy, and elegance.

The other side to this tale is told through Therion, representing the "hostile forces". A dark, spicy warmth reveals the presence of the great beast Typhon, or Typhoeus, who once ruled the deepest realms of Hades.
