In the ancient world, Cythera, one of the Greek islands was thought to be the birthplace of Venus, Goddess of Love. Thus, the island became sacred to the goddess and love. French painters and poets from Watteau to Baudelaire used Cythera as a subject of their works.
Cythère is a part of Rigaud's Oriental Collection. It is described by many as "spicy and lush" with very faint floral notes of jasmine and violet, mixed with cinnamon and cloves. The scent is grounded by the earthy complexity of the patchouli, musk and sandalwood...which give it a very sexy, refined edge. Rigaud describes Cythère as "a symphony wherein fruity notes reveal hints of jasmine, delicate and transparent, on a slightly musky backdrop."
