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

August, 1400, Tenochtitlan, Mexico:

On the most fragrant festival in the Aztec calendar, the rhythm of drums palpitates as a wealth of flowers is offered on temple altars. Billowing clouds of Copal act as a backdrop to the intoxicating breath of Tuberose, Magnolia, Plumeria and the intensely yellow aroma of the sacred Marigold, Cempoalxochitl.

Head notes: Mexican Acacia, Marigold and Crushed leaf accents.

Heart notes: Tuberose Absolute, Magnolia grandiflora and Red & White plumeria.

Base notes: Copal (Mexican Incense), Benzoin and Mexican Vanilla Bean.

flor y canto is the most emotional perfume in the line to me; the first time I smelled it as a composition it literally brought tears to my eyes. The fresh tuberose immediately took me to my family’s home in Mexico City. The last time I had been there, tuberoses were in season, and the warm-but-cool scent was all around the house. The same scent was thought by the Aztecs to connect humans with the spirits from beyond.  It was fascinating to realize that my emotion for the scent was also connecting me with the history of Ancient Mexico. - Carlos Huber
