Nepenthe was, according to Homer, an ancient Egyptian elixir; a herbal drink that was so potent it chased away all grief and sorrows.
Nepenthe perfume by TRNP is one of my most cherished personal fragrances; an otherworldly nectar of Champaca, Blue Lotus, Frangipani and Sandalwood (among some other mysterious players).
Blue Lotus is euphoric, aphrodisiac and a deeply trance-inducing absolute. Frangipani is a temple flower. It produces a transcendent state of mind where one finds the ability to rise above the troubles of the day and be at peace. Champaca (magnolia) is purely a sexual stimulant and Mysore sandalwood is the very best ground of creamy woods with which to anchor the whole fragrance in place.
Even if I just take a single sniff of this fragrance from the bottle, I find myself staring into space, calm, centred, profoundly still and silent in my being.
