Amaranthine is rooted in the Greek words amarantos, meaning "immortal" or "unfading," and anthos, meaning "flower." The word amaranthine is used to describe anything possessing an undying quality or beauty. It is in emotionally dark and trying times that the soul seeks, and even demands, light and beauty, hope, and reassurance that the love we give and receive never dies. I created the Amaranthine collection as a panacea for the weary soul that seeks something delicate, ethereal, uplifting and beautiful even if fleeting. I hope I am able to send some good vibes your way in sharing it.
AMARANTHINE (Eternally Beautiful, Undying) - Elegant notes of Egyptian jasmine, a potent aphrodisiac with undertones of tea and honey, is balanced with the warm and seductive notes of sunny orange blossom.
