Mother Goddess?
With great enjoyment I would like to write a little and elaborated text about the many myths refering to the ancient Mother Goddes, the Magna Mater with her chariot: "Cybèle". The mighty and different ancient goddesses existed thousands of years before the great Godfathers became more and more omnipotent into the pantheon until now where there seems to be only one Godfather the Almighty.
If somebody is interrested, there are many exciting versions in the English site of Wikipedia (compared with those of the German site).
I am not inspired because compairing this great prehistorical Goddesses with the Galimar-scent "Cybèle" would be inappropriate and seems to me just pompous.
"Cybèle" is a fine and light fruity-floral scent. Lily of the valley? No, I am smelling tuberose and jasmine but not of the obstrusive but the noble kind. A whiff of decent fruity acidity with a slightly metallic touch gives "Cybèle" a fresh direction. This all is embraced by the creamyness of santal and of course synthetically white musc.
But then nothing else is happening during the very good longevity. I am not perceiving cedar nor any woody note. In allusion of the mighty goddess there is a lack of something animalike, civet, dirty musc and amber gris. Not to forget oakmoss and patchouli or oud.
And out of all I am missing the smoke of incense to draw the smoke-sacrifices.
"Cybèle" is only a good being fragance for well behaved women and girls.
