"DANAË," a fragrance within the Argos Artist Series I, draws its inspiration from Gustav Klimt's oil painting created in 1907, an emblematic piece that marries the sensual with the divine through the symbolic narrative of Danaë. This artwork, steeped in Symbolism, presents Danaë as a figure of divine love and transcendence, capturing a moment of ethereal intimacy and celestial visitation. Danaë's legend, deeply rooted in Greek mythology, tells of her confinement by her father, King Acrisius of Argos, in a bronze tower to thwart a prophecy. Despite this, Zeus visits her in the form of golden rain, a symbolic representation of divine intervention and sensuality, leading to the birth of her son, Perseus, a hero of Greek mythology renowned for his deeds.

The "DANAË" fragrance is an olfactory masterpiece that seeks to embody the complex interplay of sensuality and divinity, much like Klimt's portrayal of Danaë. It begins with an opening of Bright Bergamot and Sicilian Lemon, notes that introduce the fragrance with a burst of luminosity, reminiscent of the golden rain that signifies Zeus's presence. This radiant introduction sets the tone for a narrative that is both divine and deeply human.

The heart of the fragrance unfolds with Spicy Pink Peppercorn, adding a touch of intrigue and intensity, mirroring the complexity of Danaë's emotions and the profoundness of her experience. Deep Gaiac, Cedar, and Cashmere Wood interlace to create a rich, woody core, symbolizing the strength and depth of Danaë's lineage and her role in the mythological narrative. These elements together craft an experience of warmth and depth, evoking the protective embrace of the royal purple veil that envelops Danaë.

As the scent evolves, it settles into a base of Sweet & Sticky Cistus, Spicy Patchouli, Mysore Sandalwood, and Intoxicating Musk. These base notes provide a lasting impression of mystique and allure, capturing the essence of divine love and the transcendental nature of Danaë's story. Cistus and Patchouli add a sweet, earthy depth, while Mysore Sandalwood and Musk contribute to an intoxicatingly rich foundation, encapsulating the sensuality and the spiritual transcendence that Danaë represents.

"DANAË" is more than a fragrance; it is an invitation to journey through a story of mythical proportions, blending the boundaries between the human and the divine. It encapsulates the essence of Klimt's artistic vision and Danaë's legendary tale, offering an aromatic experience that is as complex and profound as the narratives that inspired it.
