(55 ml/1.85oz Eau de Parfum natural spray)

November, 1695, Mexico City:

Deep inside the halls of the Royal Convent of Jesus Maria, a group of reverent nuns prepares a Baroque recipe of spiced Cocoa. The brew is infused with an assortment of chilies that tempt rapture, and the air is rich with the scent of exotic spices. After centuries of safe-keeping within this closed world, their secrets are finally revealed to the senses.

Head notes: Sesame seed, Cinnamon bark and Oregano

Heart notes: Clove buds, Cumin, ‘Huele-de-Noche’ (Night-blooming jasmine) and Chili infusion

Base notes: Mexican Vanilla Bean, Cocoa Bean Absolute and Oriental-Chypre accord.

"Looking at an old 17th century plan, the kitchen opened to the main cloister…I imagined the scent of Mexican Vanilla, Cinnamon from Asia, toasted sesame and the grinding of cocoa beans wafting around the space, floating out to the courtyard, where the night-blooming jasmine in ceramic pots would mix in, and accompany the nuns on their procession to church. My goal with Anima Dulcis was to recreate this experience.”  - Carlos Huber
