- The olfactive snapshot of Louis XIV and the French Court in 1660. A reconstruction of authentic perfume formulas from the 17th century, improved upon by contemporary perfumery. FLEUR DE LOUIS is a classic French bouquet using the most fashionable flowers of the French court, set on woody base representing the wooden walls of a Royal pavilion. A decidedly regal and refined scent retaining the subtlety of the highest quality naturals. With notes of: Orange blossom, Florentine orris, jasmine and cedar wood.
- ANIMA DULCIS is an olfactive reconstruction of Viceregal Mexico: the mineral notes of the tile floors and stucco walls, the cedar wood and pine beams, and the gilded altars give way to a recipe of spiced chocolate at its heart. The incense from the church mixes with the kitchen spices, creating an evocative Baroque concoction for both men and women. Notes include: Cocoa absolute, Mexican vanilla, cinnamon, and a smoked chili infusion.
