About Zaldy 
Zaldy is the renowned designer who for over a decade has straddled the twin genres of fashion and music to create timeless, beautifully crafted women’s clothing. Since the launch of his namesake collection in 2002, Zaldy has shown a singular vision of modern femininity: effortlessly confident and inherently cool. 

Zaldy’s aesthetic ranges from the obsessively ornate to the sleekly tailored, always executed with a bohemian edge and theatrical flair. These qualities have led him to imagine stage looks for many of the most celebrated performers of our time: Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears among them. From 2004 to 2007, Zaldy was the head designer of Gwen Stefani’s highly successful L.A.M.B. collection, which fused streetwear elements with the singer’s signature glam-punk look.

My customer is not seeking validation from fashion and she doesn’t buy into trends,” Zaldy says. “My goal is always to highlight the personality: five different women can wear the same dress and look entirely different.”

Zaldy’s understanding of women and personalities is no doubt owed to his coming up in the downtown New York scene of the 1990s, during which he witnessed the heyday of a glamorous clubbing culture. While studying at Parsons and the Fashion Institute of Technology, Zaldy became a fixture of a scene that pushed the boundaries of art, beauty, and style. This fearless creativity remains felt in the clothes he creates today for his growing circle of audacious muses.

Archetypes: Fragrances Based on Your Personality

Archetypes fragrances are all based on personality and with 12 different scents, they make the perfect holiday fragrance gift for your family and friends! So no matter who you’re shopping for – whether it’s the caregiver, the athlete, the creative – Archetypes can help you give the perfect gift specifically for them!





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 who’s 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 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.

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, 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.

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 who’s 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, irisand 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.

AVAILABLE for $64 for each eau de parfum (1.7 oz/50 ml) at archetypes.com
