Infanta en Flor by Arquiste

June 1660, Isle of Pheasants, Basque Region on the Spanish-French border

A story of veiled beauty and innocence, Infanta en Flor (infanta in bloom) is an olfactory snapshot of the Infanta Marie Therese as she leaves the Spanish court for her new home as the bride of Louis XI. A union designed to bring peace to the two nations.

The opening notes of sweet immortelle (everlasting flowers) and cistus (rockrose) are uplifted by sharp green bergamot.

A delicate floral heart of orange flower, jasmine and Moroccan rose blushes and charms a coy Spanish leather.

Infanta en Flor finishes with a harmonious marriage of clean musk, amber and cistus.
