This spicy oud has an intense and slightly earthy woody heart, it is illuminated with incense and amber and the cistus, vanilla tonka and grey amber give it a warm, resinous and balsamic base.
Like the King of Gods, this scent is an unapologetic statement demanding attention.
Jupiter, the King of the Gods was revered and feared in equal measures. Highly temperamental, he ruled the heavens armed with the mighty thunderbolt, said to be the most powerful weapon among the gods. He rescued his siblings from death, led the victorious battle of Titans and overthrew his father for the throne.
Like Jupiter, well known for amorous pursuits, this scent is powerful, vigorous and seductive.

A smooth woody heart is elevated by a strong and spicy aromatic top, and settles seductively with warm amber and tonka base. Like Jupiter, well known for amorous pursuits, this scent is powerful, vigorous and seductive.
Electimuss Jupiter is incredibly complex scent. It starts spicy, smoky and oudy. The Oud is not animalic or funky, rather it is quite tame. The heart is very woody, touched by creamy sandalwood. The base is where this perfume shines. The ambergris, mixed with musk, vanilla and tonka beans, makes the perfume warm and sweet. I can smell each stage of the perfume quite distinctively, which makes it a thumbs up for me.
Tales of Jupiter
A queen bee from Mount Hymettus ascends to Olympus to present Jupiter with some honey fresh from her combs.
Jupiter, delighted with the offering, promises to give whatever she would ask. The queen is quick to implore, “Give me, I pray thee, a sting, that if any mortal shall approach to take my honey, I may kill them.”
Jupiter is sorely displeased, but can’t refuse his promise. He answers the bee, “You shall have your request, but at the peril of your life. For if you use your sting, it shall remain in the wound you make, and then you will die from the loss of it.”
This Roman parable teaches that spite will plague us. The Romans named the planet after their king of gods, Jupiter, who was also the god of the sky and of thunder. … It was the largest object in the sky; therefore the most powerful; therefore Jupiter.
