Aleksandr by Arquiste
Eau de Parfum

Aleksandr is inspired by a frosty winter afternoon, a fiery gentleman finishes his toilette by dabbing on a preparation of Neroli and Violet. He draws down his cuffs, dons a heavy fur and strides out in polished leather boots. As he rides off on his sleigh, the woody scent of Fir fills the air. Beyond the snow-laden trees, on a clearing bathed in amber light, the fateful duel awaits. A scent that travels, like a bullet in the air, from a cold exterior to a warm heart. Leathery, sophisticated & warm.

Carlos Huber first pursued the study of architecture at Universidad Iberoamericana and the École Spéciale d’Architecture, Paris. A move to Spain awakened his love for the aromatic environments of the Mediterranean, and strengthened his interest in architectural history. This led him to New York City, where he graduated. Turning to his longtime love of perfumery, Carlos Huber studied fragrance development and collaborated with internationally recognised noses Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Yann Vasnier in order to recapture the olfactive notes of historical moments.
Several of our fragrances have been chosen as finalists for the Parfum Extraordinaire award (the industry’s top honour for olfactive works of art) at the United States Fragrance Foundation Awards.
