Hetairae Perfume Oil


The sublimely beautiful, fiercely independent, impeccably cultured, fascinatingly worldly and witty courtesans of ancient Greece. A seductive and dazzling blend of golden honey, fiery patchouli, sweet fig and clove, and a blushing touch of ylang ylang.


Presented in an amber apothecary vial.

    I chose an imp of this scent in my first order, and at first I didn’t think I would be able to wear it as the ylang ylang is so super potent. But then August rolled around with its steamy hot days and it was just what I wanted. To me it’s a dark scent, like flowers and dirt. I think I get mostly ylang ylang and patchouli, a scent I normally dislike but it really works well here to temper the sweetness. There’s a touch of honey, maybe, but this scent is sexy and dirty. I love it.

    A word of warning: this stuff is INTENSE. A tiny dab is enough for a huge throw, so use caution unless you want to be that person who stinks up a room (in a good way, but still…)

    I love the staying power of this – it lasts most of the day for me, but isn’t overpowering. A lovely blend of spicy and sweet.

    I love Hetairae: green yet creamy, sweet honey enhanced so delicately with infused ylang-ylang (I have so come to appreciate her) and spicy patchouli. She is Skuld’s dark haired older sister, and kin to Nasty Woman. So many honey blends are “blond” or “naked” to me. The richness of the fruit, spices, and patchouli darken Hetairae up so that it “fits” me better. Another super-sexy-chic patchouli. Mmmmm-wwwwa-gawd…..

    The bite of the honey comes through first. This might make sense to those of you who’ve eaten spoonfuls of raw honey and really had the scent just stuck in your sinuses. It’s that rich, sort of crunchy scent that only honey has. To me, it has the texture of that scent (if that makes any sense) but the scent of the patchouli/ylang-ylang mix. Not really getting the clove or fig across, though those might be layered in with the bit of lower sweet notes.

    To compare, I wouldn’t call this a distinctly sweet scent, nor cloying, compared to others that I’ve reviewed like Elegba, and Antikythera Mechanism, which are both very rich and heavy, sweet, but not candy sweet scents.
