A gentle citrus rounded by hay and beeswax with a finale of opulent jonquille.
The intoxicatingly joyous lemon-floral scent of magnolias is the heart of Alba, a fragrance borne in Spring.
After living in South East Asia for many years, moving to San Antonio, Texas, was a jarring experience. There is fragility associated with arriving in a new environment and having to become re- established in life and work. It was a beautiful Spring, and our neighborhood was exploding with new life.
Blooming magnolia trees, planted back in the 1920s and '30s when the area was being developed, were scenting every street with magic. Thinking about the Chinese origin of the Magnolia species made a comforting bridge between what had been left behind and what would be a new beginning.
Cultus Artem perfumes contain only fragrance oils, distilled water and perfumery alcohol.
