A heady, slightly sweaty white floral with tuberose, gardenia, tropical notes of frangipani and hint of bitter marigold. Inspired by five Mexican flowers believed by the Aztecs to be the intoxicating scent of Xochiquetzal, the goddess of beauty.

From Arquiste:
August, 1400, Tenochtitlan, Mexico: On the most fragrant festival in the Aztec calendar, the rhythm of drums sounds as a wealth of flowers is offered on temple altars. Billowing clouds of copal act as a backdrop to the intoxicating scents of tuberose, magnolia, plumeria and the intensely yellow aroma of sacred marigold, Cempoalxochitl.

Mexican acacia, marigold, crushed leaf accents, tuberose absolute, magnolia grandiflora, red and white plumeria, Copal (Mexican incense), benzoin, Mexican vanilla bean

Not your mom’s paradise

One spritz of this dragged me back in time to a fantastic outing with my mom nosing perfumes at a Gordmans in the late 2000s. We’d fallen in love with a bottle of Estée Lauder’s Beyond Paradise in its lovely teardrop bottle and took one home. Later, long after I’d fled the nest I bought a bottle of my own to remind me of home when I was halfway across the country. Now I’m in my 30’s, my taste in fragrance has changed somewhat, I prefer earthier, warmer scents, something a little more rarefied and interesting. This scent is EXACTLY the conjunction of that memory and my current taste. The dry down is longer lasting, warmer, more benzoin and maturity than the fruit forward notes and fleeting nature of Beyond Paradise. It was such a pleasure to stumble upon. I’ll be buying a full bottle ASAP.

Incredible Floral

Just received my sample today. I love a juicy floral, and this is! I get the orange blossom first, but as the fragrance settles into the skin it becomes more complex. There’s depth that softens the bright edge while remaining truly floral and a bit sweet but not cloying or heavy. It’s like walking through a garden. Truly beautiful.


This fragrance reminds me of a strong independent woman ready to tackle the day. It’s a powerful yet clean smell.

Nostalgia of Barbies in the 90s

This smells exactly like certain barbie accessories I had in my childhood. Brings me back.
