August, 1400, Tenochtitlan, Mexico.
On the most fragrant festival in the Aztec calendar, the rhythm of drums palpitates as a wealth of flowers is offered on temple altars. Billowing clouds of Copal act as a backdrop to the intoxicating breath of Tuberose, Magnolia, Plumeria and the intensely yellow aroma of the sacred Marigold, Cempoalxochitl.
Five Mexican flowers offered on temple altars believed by the Aztecs to be the intoxicating scent of Xochiquetzal, the goddess of beauty.
Notes: Mexican Acacia, marigold, crushed leaf accents, tuberose absolute, magnolia grandiflora, red & white plumeria, Copal (Mexican Incense), benzoin and Mexican vanilla bean.
