Parysatis was the 5th-century BCE illegitimate daughter of Artaxerxes I, Emperor of Persia and Andia of Babylon.

She was the half-sister of Xerxes II, Sogdianus and Darius II. She married her half-brother Darius and had four sons, Artaxerxes II, Cyrus the Younger, Ostanes and Oxathres. Her favorite was Cyrus and it was on account of her influence that the then teenager was given supreme command in western Anatolia in around 407 BCE. When her husband died, she supported her younger son Cyrus. When Cyrus was defeated in the Battle of Cunaxa she blamed the satrap Tissaphernes for the death of her son. She later had Tissaphernes assassinated.

Asteroid 888 Parysatis is named after her.

Introduced by a spicy duo of pink peppercorns and a warm saffron note, the distinctive heart of myrrh is elusive and seductive at a time.

  • Giorgio Armani Oud Royal
    giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com
    Oud Royal showcases the precious and unique Oud Wood. This unique wood is more tantalising than gold. Mystical and precious, and considered to be a second skin in the Middle East, this distinguished and noble material invites us to discover a captivating Elixir of oriental fragrances. Mystical and sensual, oud oil is made from the dark, resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria trees. In the Middle East, high demand has made it so expensive that it is now used only ritually, on special occasions. It has a characteristic woody note, with leathery, smoky and animal accents. It can also express balsamic tones, with floral inflections. Giorgio Armani decided to work with oud oil the same way he would approach a rich gold and silver brocade. With Oud Royal, I wanted to capture the spirit of Eastern alchemy by elevating oud wood — the precious symbol of the Orient itself” explains Mr Armani. “Treating it as a piece of jewellery is the only way to do justice to its magnificent richness.” KEYWORDS : FASCINATING, DEEP AND MAJESTIC. KEYNOTE : OUD WOOD OF LAOS. OLFACTORY FAMILY : WOODY. CONCENTRATION : INTENSE EAU DE PARFUM.
