Like a rare fruit–a radiant pomegranate–plucked from the trees of paradise, this small bottle tempts us with its glowing beauty. Whatever it held during the Golden Age of Rome must have been very costly, something to be meted out drop by drop. Even empty, however, the essence of something precious and magical clings to the bottle.
