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
