Arquiste The Architects Club description

Arquiste’s Architects Club is a woody, sweet and spicy perfume with hints of lemon and orange citrus.

It exudes an aura of sophisticated, old world luxury,with a refined masculinity that hearkens back to the Roaring 20’s. Which is as it should be, as this perfume’s backstory is about a gathering of architects in a men’s club in the trendy Mayfair district of London.

Just need to figure out how to pronounce the name 😂
Love, love, love this scent! It’s rather sweet. Not like Bath&Body works lotion but sweet non the less. I spray one squirt of this and layer it with one squirt of Rag N Bone ‘Oddity’. The combination is great. One is sweet, the other is musky. Great for fall!

Mama Like
Ok. I have a confession. I love smelling like I just left my boyfriend's house and used his cologne before stepping out. I love men's scents but with a touch of warmth and sweetness (just a touch!) This scent....THIS SCENT. Ooh it made me purrrr. It smells RICH. This is a wealthy scent. It smells like money is not a concern for you. It was perfectly androgynous. PERFECTLY. Its warm and has distinct rummy, smoky, muskiness to it which was PERFECT for ushering the crisp cool fall months, with my tweeds and turtlenecks and booties. Im considering maybe a bottle, or maybe adding it again to my queue. I love it. It really blended seamlessly with my personality, and that is what scents should do.

Warm & Lasting
Pleased with how this turned out, I worked about it being too old/bar/smoke smelling. It's feminine and the vanilla is just right (this is my first perfume with vanilla in it in 10 years). It is sophisticated and the longest lasting scent I've received from Scentbird yet. This is what I signed up for, it's like a nice warm vanilla latte.

Almost perfect!
I love the citrusy opening notes, but they dont last long. After about 10 minutes the scent gets very "cool" and woody rather than warm and woody... it's kind of dry. Then it turns sweet with amber and vanilla and I love it again. That seems to last the longest on me.

Cocktail Lounge at its finest
This is not a scent I'd normally even pick up at the store and try, I go for the more girly, fruity or vanilla scents. I was pleasantly surprised at this perfect for fall parfum. It opened up with the citrus, then shifted to a woodsy, vanilla scent. I could definitely picture a group of architects gathering for cocktails in an Art Deco smoking room reclining in leather chairs, sipping martini's. I like this scent and am looking forward to hearing what others' around me think about it on me. It is a nice fall or evening scent.

Smells like a casino.
I love vanilla so based on the reviews thought this would be perfect for me. Sadly all I smell is the smell like when you walk into a casino 😂 minus the cigarettes. Looks like it is great for a lot of people, just way too strong for me!

A+ unisex fragrance
This is a fantastic, sophisticated vanilla and amber scent. It's not sugary vanilla at all, just warm and delicious. It smells sexy and expensive (which it is, for a full bottle). This one is going to be a staple for this fall/winter.

Vanilla as it should be
I'm not going to comment on the brisk and pleasant opening; the top notes tell you everything you need to know. What I discovered I love about this scent is the vanilla. It sneaks in early, but in a very unobtrusive, gentle way that belies what it will become as the fragrance progresses. At about the one-hour mark, The Architects Club settles into a warm, dry, slightly smoky vanilla that I find intoxicating. This is no buttercream-bakeshop-your-mom's-rice-pudding vanilla; there's no creamy, cloying sweetness. This is an indolent vanilla lingering over a bed of spicy woods. It's hands-down my favorite vanilla and absolutely perfect for fall. Unfortunately, sillage is nonexistent; it settles into a skin scent very quickly, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, because this vanilla invites a lingering hug. Longevity is moderate; if I bury my nose in my wrist, I can still detect a hint of vanilla at 6 hours, but it's very faint. I give it a 4/10 sillage, 5/10 longevity, and 7/10 overall "wow" factor, but I'd go 10/10 if I'm rating it compared to other vanilla scents. Great value with Scentbird, but I wouldn't buy a FB at this price.

Definitely different
A unique fragrance with an unlikely blend of elements, this one is hard to categorize. At first sniff you get an indulgent whiff of vanilla /tobacco sweetness that dodges being cloying due to the tangy lemon and juniper notes subtly underpinning everything. Add in some woody notes for an unexpected contrast and just a hint of spice, and you've got quite the odd concoction. But inexplicably, this fragrance works. The sweet notes stay dominant throughout wear, which I like, again without being dessert - like, and a light spritz goes a long way. This fragrance is a true original you simply need to smell to experience, and you'll probably love it or hate it. Personally, I can't stop smelling my wrists!

Love!!!
With my first whiff of this scent, I have to say I wasn't sure. It is pretty strong (in fact, one of the strongest I've had so far). But after adjusting to how strong it is, I realized that I really love it. It is very woodsy and musky. So if you aren't into that kind of thing, this is not the scent for you. And it also lasts all day! I never have to think about which scent did I put on this morning?

strong vanilla and rotting vegetation
Not a fan at all. This is the first scent I don't think I can wear. I didn't like the smell just opening the tube, but have had scents change enough with wearing them that I gave it a chance. But it didn't improve on my skin, just extremely strong, headache-inducingly sweet vanilla with a weird rotty-sweetness in the background. I do not get spicy woodsiness, which is what I was expecting from reviews.

Really Lovely--if you like masculine
This a very warm tabacco-woods fragrance, with a touch of vanilla. Sweet enough for many women to like it, but very oaky and smells kind of macho to me. Nice, but I am just too girly for it. I will see if my husband likes it, though his preferences tend to be more on the fresh side.

My new signature scent
I really enjoyed this! It smells sexy and cozy. Not necessarily a Spring or Summer scent but that has not stopped me from using it in the evening. I definitely get the vanilla and lemon and juniper. This is a scent that evokes a room full of intellectuals smoking top notch tobacco in pipes. Kind of a gourmand scent but also on the earthy side. I hate that a bottle is $180! I’m going to need to save up to justify buying this but I will own this.

Juniper, wood, lemon, and an aura of vanilla
This fragrance is the strangest thing. The first thing I smell out of the gate is juniper and lemon. This happens instantly, before the juice has even hit my skin. After that vanilla comes in and is quite strong. The strange thing is that the vanilla doesn’t mix with the other notes at all. It feels like I’m wearing a gin, lemon, and wood fragrance but also spilled some vanilla extract on my shirt. The vanilla is like an aura and I smell it all the time. When I go to smell the spray site, I smell no vanilla, but all juniper and lemon.

Gorgeous open, dry down great for layering.
If you lay a base of something like Juliette Has a Gun or an herbacious oil, the sparkling gin base holds up a bit better. I am *not* a vanilla/gourmand lover, but this is woody and complex. A winner for the vanilla hesitant. Not sure I'd invest in a full bottle due to the dry down, however I will put this back in my queue because it is a *very* wearable cozy scent. I love it, but it's not 10/10 for the retail price. Looking forward to seeing more Arquiste on Scentbird please!

Very sweet! Starts out with almost an overpowering vanilla scent but I did notice that it mellows a bit into a velvety musk the longer it stayed on my skin. I just don’t think I can get past that strong beginning to like it enough. It almost gave me a headache.

The BEST Vanilla!
This is such a beautiful non-dessert vanilla. If you want to smell like vanilla, but not like a literal cupcake, this is for you. It's sweet, but smoky/woody and a little floral. I can definitely smell the juniper in the opening, and I think it's what makes it smell a little floral through the dry-down. And floral isn't really the right word, either. The juniper just contributes this kind of green softness to the vanilla/guiac combo. I've smelled other woody vanillas and they can get almost hard and masculine. This, though, is soft and feminine, but confident and in charge. It's absolutely stunning. It's also the perfect projection -- light, but not quiet. It's not going to drown out every other smell in the room, but when you pass by you'll get noticed in a very subtle way. If it weren't so expensive, I'd get a full bottle for sure. Glad I can at least get the smaller decant here!

Does your sweetheart like pudding?
I love vanilla and loved this immediately. The smell is not overpowering: more a seduction than a slap in the face. It reminds me of a dessert, like vanilla pudding. I think it's one of those scents where a woman will put her nose in your neck, sniff and will want to remain close for the rest of the evening. If you're dating someone who has a sweet tooth, I think this scent would be a winner.

Smoky Vanilla
I was hoping for more lemon and juniper, but the vanilla and amber are very strong making it a little musty. And there is something in there that smells like paper/cardboard, which is off putting. Reminds me of a vanilla black-tea tea bag: oddly flat vanilla scent with the weird paper tea bag smell. The mixture of scents just leave me a little confused when I wear it, but I don't hate it. It really does smell like the inspiration/description listed right above the reviews section!

My Jam!
This is my favorite perfume that I've gotten from Scentbird. It's my kind of scent. I love spicy, warm, wintery scents all year. I love the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon perfume and this reminds me a lot of that. Its a smoky, interesting vanilla. I can't see a man wanting to wear this, even though it says for a man or woman. If you love "wintery" vanilla scents I thing you'll love this.

Warm, soft, sexy.
I love the way this smells on my boyfriend. I got it for him originally and all of my friends unanimously liked it. I was worried about it accidentally attracting attention to him so now I wear it and it makes me feel like I’m wrapped in an oversized cashmere sweater. It’s warm and buttery. It’s a gourmand scent and if I had know that beforehand I definitely would not have queued it but I’m so glad it did. It’s really so attractive on men. It has a woody-leathery undertone that lends well as a men’s scent. This is one I will probably buy the whole bottle of when I run out.

Nice staying power, woodsy vanilla
When it goes on it smells like you sprayed vanilla extract on. But give it time to settle and it comes out as a deeper more complex scent. On me it was not sweet at all, which I liked. It has some other elements that ground the vanilla and I enjoyed it, not enough to be my go to, but enough to put it in the rotation. One day I noticed that I could still smell it on my skin about 11 hours after I put it on.

Perfect Vanilla
This scent is pure heaven on my skin! From the notes I was worried about the juniper berries making it too herbal for my taste, but it is just subtle enough to keep it from being too sweet or smelling green. More on the soft side of sillage and longevity, but slightly stronger than just a skin scent. Beautiful!

Loved this scent! I think I'll buy a whole bottle to keep! Main notes were vanilla and a sweet sort of smokey scent with a hint of citrus. It was exactly the kind of new scent I was looking for to use on a date night. Sweet but not overly sweet, and still light. Not a walking cupcake, but can make you crave a little something for dessert ;) Perfect for spring, summer or fall, imo.

Lovely
Opens up VERY strong with vanilla sweetness. More refined and smoky/woody/spicy after initial settling. LOVE it!

Great smell, but better for a woman
This is a great product, but it smells better on my wife. It has a strong clean flower smell on me, which smells better on my wife.

A favorite!!!
This is by far one of my favorite scents that I have gotten so far!! At first I was unsure, but I waited a few days and tried it again, and after it settled, I LOVED it!! It's a great fall/ winter scent as it has that nice peppery, smoky side. But it settles to a nice warm vanilla. It's not sickly sweet or sugary, it's just homey! It also leaves clothes smelling so nice! I know I said it's a fall/ winter scent, but I still put it on once in a while even in summer because it's just a great scent!

Love Love Love
This scent is gorgeous. It's warm and creamy with some lovely bright notes and a touch of sweetness. Definitley not a typical saccharine vanilla, but it does lean to the more feminine side of unisex. One of my very favorites I've gotten through Scentbird. I would wear this every day.

intriguing
I love this scent! This has been my go to for a few months now. I love that it's soft, but not overly feminine and definitely not floral. It has a very clean, simple profile but is warm and pleasant. I'm definitely buying this.

Warm
I'm not a fan of florals, so if you are, this review may not resonate with you. This scent is very nice; strong, but not overpowering. Definitely unisex. As others have said, you get the juniper at first, then it dries to a smoky vanilla. A friend of mine tried it as well, but on her it dried down to more of a pleasant, citrusy scent. If you like Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme, there's a good chance this will appeal to you too.

The Architects Club
In the opening it smells bright with citrus and juniper/gin dominating. After 10-15 minutes, the woods start becoming more prominent, with a slight sweetness from the guaiac. Not too long later the vanilla starts to become noticeable. I find it a dry, not sweet, vanilla, more like vanilla absolute. As it dries down it is vanilla, woods, and a little smoke. Not a gourmand fragrance at all, you won’t be mistaken for a cupcake wearing this. Very warm and cozy with moderate sillage. After a few hours it stops projecting and becomes a skin scent, wish it could keep the projection up but I enjoy the opening (would love a long lasting fragrance of the opening) and development into the drydown so I don’t mind reapplying, it’s not a linear fragrance. Very unisex, sophisticated fragrance.

Even more attractive on the skin❤️
Was surprised by this bold fragrance- which I normally love bold but not too flowery- & this one is a joy in its find. I especially like the fragrance on my skin verses the initial sampling- my husband too has complimented on its wonderful smell! One to consider:)

Nose Must Be Out of Order...
Not getting the references to "sweet" fragrance at all....it smells woody and spicy, yes, and almost chemical. Not horridly so, but still not what I was expecting. I will not be repeating this scent.

My new signature scent!
I chose this scent based off the name at first TBH. I’m an architectural designer and thought it sounded cool. I came to scentbird because I had zero knowledge in terms of fragrance nor any clue what my go-to scent was and I’m happy to say, I’ve found it. This scent is rich and luxurious but never overbearing (when applied properly) and the absolute best part is that it lasts ALL day. I hate when a perfume has no lasting power! My previous favorite of the ones I’ve tried so far was Glossier but even that didn’t have the all day staying power of this. Will be purchasing the full sized bottle!

Overwhelming vanilla perfume
This one should be used with care. Lingering strong vanilla perfume that overwhelms.

Awesome, but not really...
The first ever spray was delicious, but soon after it smells like old paper, orlike all sample scents in magazines smell. As is dries down it smells musty, like a damp wood cabin in the woods. The vanilla part is sweet. It projexts well and lasts all day long. Not my favorite. Probably better on oyhrr people.

Smoky deep Vanilla with pronounced alcohol smell
I think this is a very deep vanilla and the lemon notes are evident right off the top. It then mellows out and you a get a smoky and deep vanilla. I can't decide if it's almost a bit to heavy and alcohol-smelling or if that's what it's supposed to smell like. It would be perfect if I didn't get so much alcohol on the first smell.

Absolutely Love
Suuuch a sexy scent but is easily used for both night AND day. I get two subscriptions per month and I have done it for about six months now and this is the first one that I immediately loved. I liked/was excited about some of the other ones and then I grew to love them as I wore them more often but right off the bat this one just completely drew me in.
