A "masculine floral" jasmine with the trueness of natural jasmine apparent at first spray. Soft mimosa harmonizes with sunny marigold, bergamot and twinkling magnolia. In the heart, multiple varieties of natural jasmine including two boutique distillations dance with wisps of exotic tiare, broom, Omani frankincense, neroli and rosewood - notes which add to the interest of the jasmine bouquet but never detract from the soliflore nature of the composition.
A soft erogenous base of Hawaiian vanilla and Royal Hawaiian sandalwood invoke an amber effect in the dry down. Rare South African gia adds a honeyed note and the drama of her secret spice to complete the experience.
Not as indolic as one would expect due to the addition of Christi's proprietary civet replacement which balances the overall effect, and lends a suede like finish on the skin.
If you are expecting the cloying hedione or sampaquita hit that mass produced fragrances listing jasmine as a "note" routinely deliver, you will be perplexed by the aroma, however if you have been initiated into the realm of genuine jasmine you will be enraptured by the allure of L'Arrivee.
Exceptionally rare and precious natural essences merge the four cardinal fragrance families into a singular, numinous perfume experience.

Enticing aromas of exotic fruits, narcotic flowers and sandy beaches, inspired by Timmy Vangtan and Ko Tao, (Turtle Island) in Thailand, famous for it's surrounding coral reef.
The "tropical get-away" ambiance is the result of a blend of 129 individually layered fruits, flowers, spices, tinctures and Christi's special "beach musk". Accents of lilikoi, plai, kava kave and sesame add naturalness and primal depth. The dream of Timmy's fragrance is shared by many around the world - it is the scent of "swimming with the turtles".
The holy grail of lavender perfumes. Triple gold medal award winning Hidcote Pink Lavender, organically grown and artisan distilled on the Olympic Peninsula is the crown jewel of this modern chypre formulation.
Accents of champaca, tobacco, amber, lily enfleurage and oakmoss amplify and embrace the honeyed lavender within a whirling tincture of Mysore sandalwood. Only a wisp of oud was necessary for this design - the oud provides structure and longevity while imparting it's irreplaceable magic. Somehow spicy, yet the astringent nature of lavender is apparent from the top through the entire dry down.
