Arcanum is a spicy, Vanilla, Amber scent created for Men and Women in 2020 by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour in collaboration with Steven Gavrielatos of Redolessence.
This scent begins dark and sweet and sultry. The Amberwoods from the base can be felt almost immediately, blending with Cinnamon, Coconut, and Frankincense Tears that add a sensual smokiness. As it dries, the Vanilla joins in, giving his scent a creamy quality. This scent can be worn to the office, but is much better suited for evenings when you are ‘feeling yourself’ and want to be noticed. Its warmth makes it perfect for the early Spring, Fall, and Winter months when the air has a chill to it. Over time it will become more intimate and stay close to the skin, but it will last all night. It shares similarities with Parfums de Marly Herod, but is its own scent.
Arcanum translates to “secret” in Latin. We come upon a scene of a moonlit city, still teeming with life. Neon signs light the way for those on their way to some place unknown.
Dark Amberwoods are found in the base of this scent, but release their Ambery essence from the start. A note of Coconut tempers the sweet spicy essence of Cinnamon, while Frankincense Tears add an early depth and a smoky nuance. That smokiness lingers with the addition of Leathery Labdanum and Laotian Oud in the heart. Osmanthus plays well off of the Cinnamon note before being enveloped by the sweet combination of Vanilla and Tonka Bean. A creamy, spicy, sweetness takes over your senses, seducing you and those near you.
