Arquiste: Flor y Canto

Arquiste is a beautiful fragrance collection that was created by an architect, named Carlos Huber, who specialized in Historic Preservation. For this reason, each fragrance in this line was created with meticulous research, authentic sources, and rare ingredients to evoke specific moments in history. It could be said that each scent is a time capsule that invokes intimate memories and dreams, and opens doors to distant words.

One of my favourite feminine fragrances in this collection is Flor y Canto. Rodrigo Flores-Roux created this specific scent for Carlos Huber. “On the most fragrant festival in the Aztec calendar the rhythm of drums palpitates as a wealth of flowers is offered on temple altars. Billowing clouds of copal (incense) act as a backdrop...” Flor Y Canto transports you back to a very fragrant Aztec festival in the pre-Colombian Tenochtitlan in 1400.

I love the balance between delicate yet exotic ingredients in this fragrance. Flor y Canto opens with a lovely and romantic Mexican Tuberose. This is a very soft note and is not too overwhelming. Next you can smell notes of Plumeria, which adds an exotic edge. The Magnolia in the fragrance has a very rich presence along with a very green note of Golden Marigold – a secret Aztec flower. The notes in this perfume are reminiscent of the ancient Aztec garden and create a long lasting memory. This cool fragrance is powerful and long lasting yet feminine on my skin. If you like white floral fragrances, Flor y Canto may be the one for you!

it transports us to another place in time" - Carlos Huber
