Arquiste Parfumeur is a meticulously researched and crafted fragrance collection that evokes the olfactive experience of a particular place and time. Arquiste's Mexican Baroque candle will transport you to a late afternoon in November 1695, inside the kitchen of the Royal Convent of Jesus Maria in Mexico City. There, beneath the baroque carvings of the cedar ceiling beams, an elaborate hot cocoa recipe brews inside earthenware pots. Mexican Baroque captures the scents that fill the kitchen, blending cocoa absolute, Mexican vanilla, and smoked chilies together with cedar wood and red clay.
