HADES (HAIDES) - Greek God and Ruler of the Underworld

Our Hades fragrance is truly fitting for the god of the underworld, with its rich and smoky aroma reminiscent of freshly cut firewood mingled with the distinct scent of gunpowder accord. The luxurious blend is further enhanced by the addition of fine leather and a subtle cologne undertone, making it an ideal choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

This 4-ounce candle features dark obsidian crystals and cypress, which are both sacred to Hades. It is carefully hand-poured into a black candle tin with a decorative lid.

Haides, the king of the underworld and god of the dead was quite the powerful deity, presiding over funeral rites and fiercely defending the rights of the deceased to proper burial. But that wasn't all - this god was also responsible for hidden wealth, from the fertile soil nourishing seed grain to the valuable metals extracted from the earth.

Interestingly, Haides had a rather tumultuous start to life. He was devoured by Kronos, along with four of his siblings, as soon as they were born. Luckily, Zeus was able to make the Titan disgorge them, and they all teamed up to drive the Titan gods from heaven and lock them away in the pit of Tartaros. When the three victorious brothers drew lots to divide the cosmos, Haides received the third portion - the dark, dismal underworld.

Despite his power, Haides desired a bride and sought out his brother Zeus to grant him one of his daughters. He was offered Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, but knowing that the goddess would resist the marriage, he ultimately agreed to abduct the girl forcefully. Demeter was understandably furious and caused a great dearth to fall upon the earth until her daughter was returned. Zeus was forced to concede lest mankind perish, and the girl was brought back from the underworld. However, since she had tasted the pomegranate seed, she was compelled to return to Haides for a portion of each year.

Haides was often represented as a dark-bearded, regal god, either Aidoneus, enthroned in the underworld and holding a bird-tipped scepter, or as Plouton, the giver of wealth, pouring fertility from a cornucopia. The Romans referred to him as Dis or Pluto, which is the Latin form of his Greek title, Plouton, "the Lord of Riches."
