Paloma Picasso Minotaure Eau de Toilette Spray Perfume for Men, 75 ml
About this deal
Minotaure is not the only “marble scent”. Shortly after its release, Laura Biagiotti came out with “Roma Uomo”, and Nikos with “Sculpture Homme”. They all have this dry dustiness, and they all refer to the ancient world with their names. So, I think, maybe I am not the only one who gets these pictures. You can also describe the overall impression as dry and earthy – or better: like sand. Minotaure is an autumn scent, and also the musty smell of fallen leaves may remind you of it. As the name indicates, Minotaure is not a too artificial or elegant perfume – it is a white bull! I'd say that this earthy fragrance might mostly appeal to men who by themselves feel grounded and down-to-earth. Minotaure was the Terre d'Hermès of the 1990's. The word "Minotaur" derives from the Ancient Greek Μῑνώταυρος, a compound of the name Μίνως ( Minos) and the noun ταῦρος 'bull', translated as '(the) Bull of Minos'. In Crete, the Minotaur was known by the name Asterion,  a name shared with Minos's foster-father. [c]

Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance. Plutarch. Theseus. 15–19. Diodorus Siculus. Bibliotheca historica. i.16, iv.61. Apollodorus. Bibliotheke. iii.1, 15. In some versions he was killed by the Athenians because of their jealousy of the victories he had won at the Panathenaic Games; in others he was killed at Marathon by the Cretan Bull, his mother's former taurine lover, because Aegeus, king of Athens, had commanded Androgeus to slay it. The common tradition holds that Minos waged a war of revenge for the death of his son, and won. The consequence of Athens losing the war was the regular sacrifice of several of their youths and maidens. Pausanias' account of the myth said that Minos had led a fleet against Athens and simply harassed the Athenians until they had agreed to send children as sacrifices.  In his account of the Minotaur's birth, Catullus refers to yet another version  in which Athens was "compelled by the cruel plague to pay penalties for the killing of Androgeon". To avert a plague caused by divine retribution for the Cretan prince's death, Aegeus had to send into the Labyrinth "young men at the same time as the best of unwed girls as a feast" for the Minotaur. Some accounts declare that Minos required seven Athenian youths and seven maidens, chosen by lots, to be sent every seventh year (or ninth); some versions say every year.

Servius. On the Aeneid. 6.14. singulis quibusque annis 'every one year'. The annual period is given by Zimmerman, J.E. (1964). "Androgeus". Dictionary of Classical Mythology.

Pablo Picasso made a series of etchings in the Vollard Suite showing the Minotaur being tormented, possibly inspired also by Spanish bullfighting.  All the stories agree that prince Androgeus, son of King Minos, died and that the fault lay with the Athenians. The sacrifice of young Athenian men and women was a penalty for his death.

Strange how some fragrances can fall completely out of the radar and still hold their own on the market for years. Minotaure is one of them. I used to wear it for a long time and I still didn't think about it for a long time.This 1933 print from the Vollard Suite marks one of Picasso’s first uses of the minotaur. One of several sex scenes, it was created in his Boisgeloup studio, the woman his lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter.

After ascending the throne of the island of Crete, Minos competed with his brothers as ruler. Minos prayed to the sea god Poseidon to send him a snow-white bull as a sign of the god's favour. Minos was to sacrifice the bull to honor Poseidon, but owing to the bull's beauty he decided instead to keep him. Minos believed that the god would accept a substitute sacrifice. To punish Minos, Poseidon made Minos's wife Pasiphaë fall in love with the bull. Pasiphaë had the craftsman Daedalus fashion a hollow wooden cow, which she climbed into to mate with the bull. She then bore Asterius, the Minotaur.  Pasiphaë nursed the Minotaur but he grew in size and became ferocious. As the unnatural offspring of a woman and a beast, the Minotaur had no natural source of nourishment and thus devoured humans for sustenance. [ citation needed] Minos, following advice from the oracle at Delphi, had Daedalus construct a gigantic Labyrinth to hold the Minotaur. Its location was near Minos's palace in Knossos.
