At the bottom of a marble pedestal there is a cassolette with fumes. A wisp of smokes spirals from it to a slim naked tall as a man statue though it looks lofty, proud and noble. An alabaster white face of the goddess is embraced with flowers. An ancient sanctuary stands here from Roman Empire. If people from Church know, they will sentence to death for heresy. But pagan priest, a young boy, comes here every day to put flowers on the head of his goddess, smokes fumes believing that one day the statute will transform into a beautiful woman as many generations of men in his family did.
The perfume “Goddess” by Nimere Parfums is orient and spicy composition to be created with spice, flowers, and incense notes.
Summer Paris nights are dark and chill. The Benches in the Versailles park are far away from each other so they hide lovers wishing to stay along under trees branches. A handsome chevalier cuddles a young woman and whispers some obscenity to her. If he were a bit less persistent, this evening could come to nothing. But his embrace is stronger and more explicit. The woman silly giggles loosing herself under his persistence and power. This night she will say him “yes!”

Then in the heart it opens with champaca flower, rose, iris, jasmine, narcissus, violet, neroli, ylang-ylang, and tobacco note. On the bottom of the perfume there is animalistic accord of grey ambergris, leather, civet, and castoreum followed with gourmet and wooden notes of vanilla, cacao, Tonka beans, oakmoss, patchouli, and resins.
