Cassandra of Troy is the muse for this perfume and the contemporary person for whom it is made. Known for great beauty and the ability to foresee the future, Cassandra was cursed by the vengeful Apollo so that no one would believe her prophecies. I have reimagined what it might be like for Cassandra to retain her power in a confident, humble, compassionate, and truthful way. This fragrance is the result.

Statement from Olfactory Artist - Mary Jo Howell
Anima plantae/anima hominus. Soul of the plant in communion with the soul of man. This is the foundation for every fragrance that I create. It is my belief that everything is connected and everything has a pattern that returns to itself.
“As above, so below, as within so without, as the universe so the soul.”
My process starts with an intention, whether it be a mythological figure, a personal struggle, a spiritual aspiration, or a ceremony. Nature is my greatest teacher, and the plants have a lot to say. The more we understand ourselves, each other, and the world around us, the less fear we have, and as we know, what we fear we destroy. Creating connection through every curated fragrance is my ultimate goal. Connection with ones self, to the planet, and to each other.
