Arquiste Parfumeur: Scented History in the Making


Arquiste Parfumeur: Scented History in the Making


A beautiful scent is like a beautiful memory; it transports us to another place in time, concludes Carlos Huber, the visionary behind the brand Arquiste Parfumeur. He uses this premise when creating wonderful scents that serve as time capsules.

Drawing inspiration from his formal architectural background and the diverse Mexican culture, the fragrances that carry his olfactive signature are an artistic stroll down history’s memory lane.

Each fragrance is a result of meticulous research to find the right and rarest ingredients that capture the essence of a particular place and time. Arquiste Parfumeur delivers a one-of-a-kind scented portal into history, enabling both women and men to experience these unique historical adventures using nothing but their noses.

Scentbird is excited to offer three of these luxurious fragrances: L’Etrog, Flor y Canto and The Architects Club.


L’Etrog-Eau de parfum

The historic setting of the fragrance:

October, 1175, Calabria, Italy.

In Medieval Calabria, a family gathers to celebrate a good harvest. Within a cabin built of Palm leaves and other woody branches, an aromatic bounty is presented.

The moment your fingers release the perfume nozzle and L’Etrog scented molecules fill the air, you can picture yourself in this cabin. Etrog citron, Calabria’s trademark scent, mixes with the sweetness of date fruits and air-dried myrtle, reflecting the sweet warmth of a Mediterranean night.

The Architects Club-Eau De Parfum

The Architects Club-Eau de Parfum

The historic setting of the fragrance:

Cocktail time, March 1930, London.

A group of architects gather for cocktails at Mayfair’s smartest Art Deco smoking room. As they settle in the warm interior of dark woods, leather and velvet, London’s bright young things burst in, frosted martinis in hand, surrounded by a cloud of laughter, white smoke and fine vanilla.

The Architects Club’s smoky vanilla fragrance is a true olfactive gem. Opening with a chilled cocktail of juniper berries on a dry gin base, the scent matures with every new note added to the mix. The crispness is revealed by the presence of lemon peel oil and the bitter orange in the heart of the composition. The gourmand woody base of vanilla absolute, amber and woody notes adds just the right amount of sensuality to the scent.

Flor Y Canto - Eau De Parfum

Flor y Canto – Eau de Parfum

The historic setting of the fragrance:

August, 1400, Tenochtitlan, Mexico.

On the most fragrant festivals in the Aztec calendar, the rhythm of drums palpitates as a wealth of flowers is offered on temple altars.

A fragrant portrayal of Xochiquetzal, Aztec goddess of beauty, Flor y Canto is a mesmerizing, opulent and rich scent. Radiant Mexican tuberose is blended with Magnolia, Plumeria and the sacred Marigold.
