December 1978, Armando’s Le Club, Acapulco, Mexico
Nighttime at Acapulco’s sultriest disco. Revelry on the dance floor. In the heat of the moment, he smiles coyly and motions to the beach outside, hinting at a midnight swim. He unbuttons his shirt, flashing bronzed skin and the scent of his cologne, a virile muskiness loaded with patchouli, oakmoss and elegant woody notes. A masculine impression of a day under the sun, intensified by the thrill of the night.

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.
