Named after the Goddess Jūratė from a very popular Lithuanian folktale, it is said she lived under the Baltic Sea in a beautiful amber castle. Jūratė ruled the sea and all of the sea-life.
There was a young fisherman named Kastytis that was disturbing the peace as he was catching many of her fish. Jūratė decided to punish him to restore the peace of her sea, but she fell in love with the handsome young fisherman. They lived together blissfully in her amber castle, until Perkūnas, the thunder-god, found out that the immortal goddess had fallen in love with a mortal man. He became furious and struck her castle. It exploded into millions of pieces. Jūratė rescued Kastytis from drowning in the storm, but Jūratė was chained to the ruins on the seafloor by Perkūnas. According to legend Jūratė mourns the loss of him to this day. It is said that one could hear her sad voice in a stormy sea and that it is her tears of amber that come ashore after a storm on the Baltic Sea. In an ode to Jūratė and Kastytis’ love story, we decided to wrap the warm, rich scent of amber in a blend of woody cedar, hay, sandalwood, with touches of vanilla, rum and cinnamon. It is a deliciously warm, deep scent sure the please both the men and the ladies.
