Danaë is an oil painting by Gustav Klimt, created in 1907. An example of Symbolism, Danaë was a popular subject in the early 1900s for many artists; she was used as the quintessential symbol of divine love, and transcendence.
The legend goes that while imprisoned by her father Acrisius, King of Argos, in a tower of bronze, Danaë was visited by Zeus (Jupiter to the Romans), symbolized here as the golden rain flowing between her legs. It is apparent from the subject's face that she is aroused by the golden stream.
In this work, she is curled in a royal purple veil which refers to her imperial lineage. Sometime after her celestial visitation, she gave birth to a son, Perseus, who is cited later in Greek mythology for slaying the Gorgon Medusa and rescuing Andromeda.
This is a Sensual and Divine fragrance. Argos DANAË begins to arouse the senses by opening with Bright Bergamot and Sicilian lemon. Seductive heart notes of Spicy Pink Peppercorn, Deep Gaiac, Cedar & Cashmere Wood transition slowly. Long-lasting and carnal base notes of Sweet & Sticky Cistus, Spicy Patchouli, Mysore Sandalwood, and Intoxicating Musk leave one enraptured in DANAË’S spell.- Read Less
