Following on from "Lapis Philosophorum", inspired by the legend of the Philosopher’s Stone, Olivier Durbano has delved deep into Greek mythology for this tenth fragrance, marking ten years of olfactory creation devoted to the world of stones and spirituality in which "Prométhée" is the guide...
Prométhée, Prometheus in Ancient Greek, “He who thinks ahead, and tells the future” was a Titan who, with the help of Athena, is reputed to have created Man out of mud transformed into rocks, and also for stealing the “divine knowledge”, the sacred fire of Olympus, which he hid in a fennel stalk to give it to mankind.
Zeus, the King of the Gods, was infuriated by his trick and condemned Prometheus to be chained to a rock on the peak of Mount Caucasus. The Caucasian eagle, the “winged dog of Zeus", came every day to feed upon Prometheus’s liver. The liver, symbolically associated with the rise of sap allowing the tree of life to grow, regenerated immediately during the night.
Heracles, the son of Zeus, arrived in the Caucasus where Prometheus had been serving his sentence for a thousand years, the time for unity to be rediscovered, until an immortal came to take his place. He interceded with his father to release Prometheus in exchange for an immortal, the Centaur Chiron.
Heracles then unleashed an arrow straight into the heart of the eagle and freed Prometheus. With his bronze chains and a rock from the Caucasus, Prometheus fashioned the first ring in the World, which he wore to remind him of his suffering.
Prometheus, the symbol of Progress, with his intelligence and abilities as a soothsayer thought that if humanity was deprived of fire it would not be able to discover things, to study them and use the forces of nature, to establish order and harmony and communicate with the gods through thought, and with its intelligence embrace the visible world and even the principles which are the essence of everything in the world...
The tenth creation, the number 10 echoes the figure 1, the beginning of renewal, meaning totality, completion, the return to unity.
The Tarot Major Arcana 10 is the Wheel of Fortune, the Tarot heart which holds the secret of Destinies... Unlike the first nine swords, a logical continuation in a spiritual approach, this card no longer represents characters; it becomes one for all, all in one.
