Lily of the valley, Cashmere & Amber


Arete is a serene fragrance, possessing a nearly ephemeral quality. Transparent musks and sweet tones flow through this ephemeral fragrance.

Notes: Lily of the Valley, Vanilla, Amber, Cashmere

From The Perfumer

"I really enjoy ephemeral things and ideas with two or more meanings. Arete, the idea of spiritual enlightenment and defined by the apex of a mountaintop seems like two separate ideas but, to me, they seemed like one in the same. Arete was designed for that express purpose: To reach the metaphorical apex of the mountain of enlightenment.. in fragrance form."

As it says in the tin and how this shop's stellar customer service painted it- haunting and ethereal. I've only had my mini bottle of Arete a few days, but I'm already impressed and want to try more. The spice note (very much like coriander) that appears first to the nose is another welcome surprise from this sample box and I'm downright smitten with the romantic musky vanilla and Lily of the Valley that manifests and stays for hours afterward and lends to an overall expensive smelling vintage quality that fits in perfectly with my personal aesthetic and is right at home on my vintage vanity table. I can't wait to see (and smell) what else this charming little house of fragrance has planned next.
