September 1877, Port of Marseille, France.

In a bedroom in a Marseille maison de plaisir, a ‘pleasure house’, a Kashmiri shawl drapes decadently over a bed. Once coveted, the shawls are now out of fashion with the bourgeois, their distinctive patchouli scent a victim of their downfall. Adopted by misfits and courtesans, the shawls add a note of exoticism to bohemian rooms, mixing their decadent scent with French lavender, musky ambers and heady balsams.

Arquiste Parfumeur is a meticulously researched and crafted fragrance collection that evokes the olfactive experience of a particular place and time.
