  • Artemis - I think there is a perfume with this name.... she was the Goddess the moon, forest, childbirth and the hunt.


    Nike - the winged personification of the Victory


    Greek heroes and heroines - Ajax (the bathroom cleaner/dish soap), Castor (castor oil), Pandora (jewlery)

  • I used to use a Greek seasoning called Zeus. I haven't been able to find it in years and I'm not sure if it is still in production. It was very good! Wish I could find some! I think everyone else has covered the stuff I thought of immediately. :)
