Archetypes Visionary, Performer and Spiritual Eaux de Parfum

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Archetypes is a new digital perfume brand that was founded by Cristina Carlino, who was also the founder of Philosophy.

According to Archetypes,

Archetypes.com curates lifestyle content based on individual’s archetypes. Based on your archetypes, you can make more inspired choices about everything from relationships to excelling at work to choosing a piece of clothing. Through the prism of those archetypes, the world is clearer. You can live a truly empowered life knowing which doors you should walk through and which are best left unopened.

Likewise, these luxurious new products — the very first to be launched through social media — help you make inspired choices in beauty, the kind that make you look and feel your very best.
“Merging the art of fine perfumery with the science of archetypes, these twelve gorgeous scents reflect the essence of each archetype. But there’s no need to limit yourself to just one scent.  Choose a fragrance that expresses exactly who you are in the moment, or a scent that reflects the archetype you aspire to be. While your primary archetypes represent your fragrance constants, the Archetypes collection itself allows for endless personal expression. Enjoy the ride!” — Archetypes creator Cristina Carlino
SPIRITUAL is a lovely fresh floral that blends Water Lily, Iris and Sheer Jasmine into one delectable scent. It sits close to the skin, and is light and airy. Once it dries down, on me, the Sheer Jasmine begins to emerge, but any sharpness is tempered by the Water Lily and Iris. I find the scent to be calming and centering, and perhaps this is why 

The Spiritual Archetype is from the seeker family. You are defined by your passion for an unseen world. Your fragrance preferences lean toward the light and airy. We invite you to surrender to water lily, iris and sheer jasmine. 

The archetype: The peaceful, faithful seeker, drawn to prayer, meditation and the unseen world

The scent: Flowing, light and airy, it opens with a transparent blend of water lily, iris and sheer jasmine.  Then clean, powdery white floral notes drift in for a lush, soothing effect.
PERFORMER is an interesting and exhilarating commingling of Champagne, Pink Nectarine, White Iris, Sweet Blackberry and a warm and creamy musk. At first it is difficult to untangle the scents, but once it dries down the Creamy Musk emerges with the silhouette of the Sweet Blackberry with a touch of the White Iris. It is a vibrant warm scent that is intoxicatingly beautiful.

The Performer Archetype is from the entertainment family. You are defined by your ability to emote energy, inspiration and joy into the world. Your preference in fragrance leans towards the dramatic. We invite you into a theater of champagne, white iris, and pink nectarine. 

The archetype: A natural at self-expression; energetic, joyful and dramatic; loves to entertain, please, be adored and admired.

The scent: Dramatic. In the first act, it’s a notice-me blend of pink nectarine and white iris sloshed with champagne. But at the dry down, the main actors — sweet blackberry notes  and warm, creamy
musk— step into the spotlight.
VISIONARY is a an interesting floral scent that features Rose Absolute with a crisp green undercurrent. It is light and clean, and while present it isn't imposing or invasive. It is the perfect light scent that sits close to the skin and delights the senses, but doesn't overwhelm them.

The Visionary Archetype is from the dreaming family. You are defined by your ability to bring the future into the present. Your fragrance preference is limited to no fragrance or anti-fragrance. We invite you to the new world order of clean. 

The archetype: The intuitive dreamer and seeker — a lover of simplicity who’s drawn toward the future and brings it into the now.

The scent: Light, stimulating and phenomenally clean. An initial bright pop of citrus dissolves into the green, slightly earthy freshness of lily of the valley. Then, the dry down’s lush, sophisticated blend of white florals comes to life. 
CREATIVE
The archetype: The imaginative artist/poet who adores the unusual and unexpected,
and excels at making something out of nothing
The scent: Romantic and sensual. It opens with crisp notes of sugared mandarin wrapped in
pink freesia and other soft florals. Then it gives way to an inspired, refreshing trio
of sheer musk, vanilla and crystalized ginger.

ATHLETE
The archetype: Physical and high-energy a lover of sports, competition and the great outdoors
whos defined by strength and endurance
The scent: An energetic bouquet that kicks off with a burst of bright citrus notes, white florals
and the fresh, herbal quality of green tea. And the complex, citrus-musk dry down
smells equally zesty and vibrant.

REBEL
The archetype: The fearless, rule-breaking maverick a fighter who believes in freedom and justice, and is drawn to the fire and the edge
The scent: Sexy and provocative. An initial, tantalizing rush of citrus (fresh mandarin blossom mixed with blond and dark woodsy notes) turns into something more enticing, with a creamy blend of sweet fig, blackberry, deep florals and musk. 

CAREGIVER
The mother of all archetypes: Giving, loving and compassionate a rescuer and nurturer
The scent: A soft, calming distillation of rare florals. A mix of fresh blossoms warmed with pink peppercorns instantly welcomes you in, then shifts into a sweet, delicate blend
of florals, citrus and woodsy notes.

VISIONARY
The archetype: The intuitive dreamer and seeker a lover of simplicity whos drawn toward the future and brings it into the now
The scent: Light, stimulating and phenomenally clean. An initial bright pop of citrus dissolves into the green, slightly earthy freshness of lily of the valley. Then, the dry downs lush, sophisticated blend of white florals comes to life.

PERFORMER
The archetype: A natural at self-expression; energetic, joyful and dramatic;
loves to entertain, please, be adored and admired
The scent: Dramatic. In the first act, its a notice-me blend of pink nectarine and white iris sloshed with champagne. But at the dry down, the main actors sweet blackberry notes 
and warm, creamy musk step into the spotlight.

ROYAL
The archetype: Regal, take-charge, discriminating and empowered defined by
the ability to lead and luxuriate
The scent: Distinctive and vibrant. The top notes fresh green accords wrapped around soft citrus and a royal garden bouquet lead to a stronger, more decadent white floral: jasmine and ylang ylang
resting on a bed of exotic musk.

TASTEMAKER
The archetype: Cutting-edge, influential and iconic; a leader and early adapter to trends whos drawn to fashion, beauty and interior design
The scent: Chic and unexpected. It opens with deeply warming tones of spice and dry cedarwood; blooms with white florals (neroli and black lavender) at its heart; then dries down to an enchantingly clean, classic fragrance with a subtle herbaceous quality.

SPIRITUAL
The archetype: The peaceful, faithful seeker, drawn to prayer, meditation
and the unseen world
The scent: Flowing, light and airy, it opens with a transparent blend of water lily, iris and sheer jasmine.  Then clean, powdery white floral notes drift in for a lush, soothing effect.

EXPLORER
The archetype: Adventurous, travel-loving, curious and free-spirited; loves the outdoors and the exotic
The scent: Sheer woods, fresh floral greens, dry woods and freshly-cut grass like taking a stroll around a tropical paradise or mist-shrouded mountain.

ADVOCATE
The archetype: A hero and change agent a champion of causes to save our world 
The scent: Bright, earthy and energetic. The all-natural fragrance starts with vibrant citrusy notes (orange blossom and bergamot), and segues into an intoxicating, ylang ylang-tinged white floral.

INTELLECTUAL    
The archetype: The eternal student scholarly, smart, analytical and precise
The scent: Classic and understated. It reads like a fruity floral when you first apply it, with the fresh, almost floral quality of blood orange amplified by lush geranium and black current. But as it dries down, it tells a deeper, more sophisticated story, with vanilla, musk, amber and a whiff of white flowers.

 Ingredients:
Overall Assessment: A very interesting concept in selecting fragrances based upon archetypes, and the fragrances themselves are quite lovely.
