Apollo - Greek God of the Sun and Arts


4 oz Soy Candle
10-14 Hour Average Burn Time


Apollo filled several roles within Greek mythology. He was considered to be the god of the sun, as well as the god of music, poetry, healing and plagues, prophecy, archery, agriculture, and many more. He is often depicted with a lyre or a bow in his hands. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto and has many siblings and half-siblings. 


Apollo was loved by both men and women, and loved them back. His partners included Coronis, Daphne, Cyparissus, and Hyacinthus to name a few. Oftentimes, when a relationship with Apollo did not end well, the lover was transformed into a plant. Daphne was transformed into a laurel, Cyparissus was transformed into a cypress tree, and Hyacinthus after being mortally wounded was transformed into a hyacinth flower.


We focused on the sun aspect, and some of the plant aspects of Apollo’s lore when crafting this fragrance. It is a citrusy and bright fragrance with notes of apricot, orange, mango, floral, and a touch of green and woody notes. Medusa’s Elixir was also chosen due to the fact that most temples of gods depict Medusa as an unsightly gorgon, while Apollo’s temples still depict her as a beautiful woman with her gorgon features.
