Half buried in the Egyptian desert lies the colossal statue of Ramses II. Percy Bysshe Shelly's poem Ozymandias (aka Ramses II) is a meditation on the inevitable decay of power by the forces of time.
The fragrance Ozymandias is about that journey of time, from it's lively beginning to its earthly finale.
The journey commences with the fresh fragrance of the wood and leaves of the mandarin tree, and on to the rich ancient notes of arnica, tobacco, cedarwood, and elevating sacred frankincense. The final note is mitti attar, a distillation of sandalwood and clay from the earth.
Artemisia Natural Perfume Ozymandias is available in 7 gr Solid Perfume ($28) and 17 ml Eau de Parfum ($68). Samples are also available.
