“The moonlight is cast on the illuminated city. The whir of luxury automobiles and bleeding dialogues add to the soundtrack of the city after dusk. Neon lights and towering skyscrapers define the aesthetic of the landscape in which our protagonist is found wandering. Enshrouded in an air of mystery, we follow our obscure figure through crowded streets to an unknown destination. Meaning “mystery” or “secret,” Arcanum opens up with a dash of alluring cinnamon spice and delicious coconut before settling on a bed of sensual osmanthus and mysterious agarwood from Laos. A medley of incense anchors the enigmatic and cryptic aura of the fragrance until dark amberwoods, intoxicating vanilla, and beguiling tonka bean conclude the olfactory aria. Seize the night!.”
