- 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.
- Inspired by the Latin glamour of Acapulco in its disco heyday, ÉL is an 'after hours' fougère based on the jet-set discos. Spicy, musky and animalic, the impression of a scent macerating on skin during a night of revelry. With notes of: Moroccan rosemary, Egyptian geranium, cinnamon leaves, oakmoss, vetiver and castoreum.
- Inside a cozy wood paneled room of velvet banquetes and wood, blond tobacco and smoky vanilla mix with the crisp herbal notes of gin. It’s Martini time at a plush English Fumoir bar in 1930s London. THE ARCHITECTS CLUB is a comforting, smoky vanilla with an amber woody base and an cool dry gin opening. Notes include: Juniper berry oil, angelica root, lemon peel oil, pepper wood, guaiac wood, oak wood, vanilla absolute and amber.
- Based on a documented transoceanic voyage in 1618 uniting East and West. NANBAN is a woody and smoky oriental fragrance evoking the dark hull of a galleon full of exotic cargo. With notes of: Malabar black pepper, Persian saffron, Chinese osmanthus, coffee absolute, Spanish leather, myrrh, frankincense, sandalwood and cade.
