One of the horrible, painful, cruel, brooding, mocking and malignant children of Nyx, he is Death Incarnate, and is seen as a willowy young man, accompanied by a butterfly, bearing an inverted torch and funeral wreath in his hands. In modern thought, thanks to Sigmund Freud, it is the Death Instinct: love of death, destruction and decay, and the desire to embrace the quiescence, silence and peace of the grave. Dry white sandalwood and soft Siamese benzoin over a lugubrious blend of myrrh, Moroccan rose, mastic, tomb moss and a thin whiff of Greek incense.
What a marvelous scent!
Thanatos starts off dry & clear, with a hint (only a hint) of dewy rose. Then the incense combines with the sandlewood, benzoin & myrrh for a eyes-rolling-back-in-your-head experience.
If you want a fantastic, one of a kind, season transitional blend, Thanatos it IT!
Thanatos would be a wonderful scent for layering. It's a unisex scent, despite the rose. I'm looking forward to a "mature" Thanatos, mmmm.
