BLACHERNAE ROSE
This subtly complex bouquet combines light citrus with blends of jasmine, geranium and hyacinth, rounded with a hint of wild berries and warm moss notes to create a sweet and fresh rose scent to honor the Theotokos.

BURNING BUSH

The original burning bush that Moses saw still exists on Mt Sinai and is often referred to as a symbol for the Mother of God.

BYZANTIUM
As Byzantium bridged the East and West, so this fragrance brings together our floral and spicy fragrances capturing the best of both worlds. A sweet and warm garden fragrance subtle hints of geranium, lily and wild berry, rounded out with neroli, cinnamon, clove, warm vanilla and galbanum.

CASSIA

FLOWERS OF CYPRESS
From the rolling meadows of Cyprus comes a magnificent floral blend of rose, orange blossom, geranium, jasmine, and carnation combined with citrus fruit oils tempered with woody and mossy base notes.

Our newest fragrance is a complex blend of geranium, neroli and ylang and is freshened with strong top notes of rose.
