In one of the rare times he left the Underworld, Hades fell in love with Persephone, daughter of the goddess Demeter. while she was gathering flowers in a field and decided to kidnap her. Hades confided in his brother Zeus, asking for help and togehter they concocted a plan. As the young Persephone played with her companions, they caused the ground to split underneath her. Persephone slipped beneath the Earth and Hades stole her into the Underworld where he made her his wife. Persephone was very unhappy, but after much time, she came to love broody Hades. A Naiad-nymph of Mount Mintha in Elis (southern Greece), Minthe was dazzled by Hades and made an attempt to seduce him. Minthe came to the attention of his wife Persephone via the Gods grapevine by claiming to be superior to her as well as observations of her advances on Hades, the angry goddess (or perhaps Demeter on her daughter's behalf) metamorphosed the nymph into a mint plant Minthe "into the garden mint, which some call hedyosmon (lit. 'sweet-smelling') or sacred plant of Hedys/Haides/Hades/Adis. (It is assumed that in ancient times mint was probably used in ancient funerary rites to mask the smell of the dead.) It is my intention that the attention of the viewer be drawn to the nose and the sniff, before that breast distracts you.
