 Manos Gerakinis SELENE (pronounced Se-lee-nee) is the newest fragrance from the first Greek luxury/niche perfume house. SELENE is named for the Greek mythological figure, the Ancient Greek Goddess of the moon. I was excited to learn that Christina Koutsoudaki, the Greek-born Senior Perfumer/Head of Fragrance Creation for VIORYL S.A. and Council Member at the British Society of Perfumers, (who I met at the World Perfumers Congress in 2022)  worked in collaboration with Manos Gerakinis. I asked Manos for his inspiration.-Michelyn Camen, Editor-in-Chief

SELENE is a very special fragrance to me as it captures the essence of Athens, Greece. Strolling around the city, nature becomes the greatest perfumer as neroli blends in the air with night jasmine. This magical scent is artistically captured and enhanced further by Christina Koutsoudaki.”- Manos Gerakinis

Working with Manos on SELENE, was a real pleasure. Our common heritage made it easy for me to relate to the images and scents that he wanted to capture with his new fragrance. The scent of orange blossom is so unique and evocative, and will always carry my childhood memories.”- Christina Koutsoudaki
