Endymion Perfume Oil

$4.50$19.50

Selune, the Moon Goddess, fell in love with a beautiful shepherd named Endymion. She appealed to Zeus, asking him to cast Endymion into everlasting slumber so that she could be with him for all eternity. Her wish was granted, and every night the Goddess visited her love as he slept. A sweet, wistful blend of d’Anjou pear, Lily of the Valley, bois du rose and white musk.

    I was surprised to see the medium reviews on this perfume because I was in love from the moment this touched my skin. I agree with other reviewers that this is heavier on the lily and rose and light on the pear and musk. The overall effect is a divine floral, bright and clear (the lily, I think), with a fresh sweetness (the pear?) and a wild undertone (definitely the rose). It had a solid throw and lasted all day. I couldn’t stop smelling my wrists. Definitely give this one a try.

    Oh, I wish there was some pear for me, but it’s all rose and lily. A sleepy, dusky rose. Lots of Lily of the Valley. Smells quiet and elegant, but ultimately feels incomplete to me. This could be due to the imp, which was from a private sale and of unknown age. The pear may show up more in a newer blend.

    Where I’d wear this: A garden funeral

    From a private sale, age unknown

    In the bottle: almost no musk. I can barely scent the pear. The bois du rose has blended and mixed with the Lily of the Valley. If this is aged over a year, it ages beautifully. Definitely reminds me of clear, cloudless nights walking in moonlight.

    wet on skin: the white musk is in the forefront followed by Lily of the Valley. I’m not getting any of the pear I recognized from the bottle test. It is a very soft and gentle scent. On me it’s not androgynous, it is feminine.

    dry 30+ mins: Everything has faded and mellowed. To me, it’s a nice but boring scent.
    worn 3+ hours: the pear ha finally showed up. It is slightly floral. It is a clean and wholesome scent. I get impressions of comfort, femininity and maturity. It brings to mind visions of a light, ivory colored clean kitchen on a clear summer’s day, and you reach into the fruit bowl and grab a ripe pear. I don’t get any “wetness” from this pear scent.

    It is a nice scent but not really my personality, which is just fine. I bought it for my daughter anyways. Endymion is like a calm, comfortable ray of summer daylight drifting through the leaves of a pear tree. Not quite the “night time” scent I was expecting.

    Wet: Out of the bottle, this scent reminds me very much of commercial perfume – heavily of alcohol, florals (mainly roses), with a touch of fruit.

    Dry: On my skin, it pretty quickly and leaves behind lilies and roses with a sweet, fruity note. Light, sweet, pretty, definitely way better than it smells straight out of the bottle. A little too floral for regular wear, but I like it overall.

  5. Sara

    a soft, sweet pear blend, subdued yet beautiful, and warm, from the musk. just a touch of the bois du rose. like eating a fresh sliced pear on your porch on a warm spring day, smelling the roses off in the distance in your garden. the only slightly objectionable thing about it is that it’s so subtle. but that’s ok, sometimes. for example, it will be nice to wear when i am rocking my baby to sleep. it’s a warm, inviting scent, not overbearing, just right.
