Chrysolithe is a mystical perfume which gets its name from Chrysolithe, from the Ancient Greek khrusolithos, meaning “gold stone"… For centuries, this mysterious stone, recognised universally, cited a number of times in the Holy Books, the Bible, the Torah and the Qur'an, the tenth of the precious stones which adorned Aaron's breastplate, the seventh of the foundation stones of New Jerusalem.... Chrysolithe, a now obsolete term, denoted up until the 19th century a number of gems that sparkle gold, tinted with green, such as peridot, phrenite, olivine or topaz… Chrysolithe is the symbol of Self-control, of the Harmony of the Divine Masculine at the heart of the Divine Feminine, and of Divine Wisdom. It symbolises pure and spiritual elevation removed from all earthly interference. In the Arab world, the number 11 represents the number of steps one must take to understand God. In China, it represents the Tao, “the Mother of Earth", the Path through heaven, 6, and Earth, 5, alluding to exceptional intuition and inspiration. Inspired by this age-old philosophy and in line with tradition, Chrysolithe combines ancestral virtues and the mysterious aroma of hyssop, symbol of purity and humility, with the precious and majestic power of cedar, pungent fragrance and revitalising properties; infused with white sage, “desert sage", with its purifying power, and mixed with black cumin, known as “the seed of blessing". Invoking all the virtues of strength and harmony, Chrysolithe gives out a pure and luminous vapour, marked by peace and wisdom. “If one wishes to become wise and to avoid extravagance, one must simply take the stone named Chrysolithe" reads the “Book of secrets by Albert the Great", a renowned 8th century spell book.
