Arquiste

Birchbox Breakdown

Fragrance snobs, prepare to be blown away. Niche perfumerie Arquiste set out to create “concept scents” that recreate specific moments in history, and the results are nothing short of remarkable. Together with famed perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, founder Carlos Huber put in countless hours of painstaking research to create Flor y Canto, a scent that evokes an Aztec summer festival in Tenochtitlan circa 1400. Wear it to be transported to a dimly lit temple altar filled with fresh flowers.

How it Works

Decadent and intense, this cool white perfume will linger on your skin for hours. A rich parade of floral notes—including Mexican tuberose, magnolia, and plumeria—mix and mingle together. As the fragrance blooms, a faint whiff of marigold (a sacred Aztec flower) makes a surprise appearance.

How to Use

A single spritz on your wrists will keep you fragrant all day.

My fav

This perfume is the perfect floral scent without being to overpowering, floral yet fresh and clean. Perfect scent for spring or summer.

Earthy and perfectly floral

This scent blew me away! It's a good balance of a feminine, floral essence and an earthy, spicy scent. Exactly what I imagine a summer evening in an Aztec market would smell like if I close my eyes and transport myself there.

Love it!

I got this sample ages ago and fell in love. I didn't want to use it because I thought it would be forever until I could actually afford the full-sized bottle. I finally did get it and it has been my go-to scent all summer long! A little goes a long way. It is a light, fresh floral that lasts all day.

Beautiful scent

I have yet to find a perfume that I like more than Flowerbomb and this comes very close. Beautiful rose like scent. Not overpowering , very nice smell.

Perfect for Summer

I love this light perfume for summer. It's totally floral and reminds me of old-school floral scents but it has a bit of a grassy twist that keeps it fresh. I tried other Arquiste scents and they don't really last on me at all-except this one totally does and yet is still not overwhelming. There is nothing 'old lady' about this scent to me , it's all about spring/summer and light.

Garden

Gorgeous scent. I consistently get compliments when I wear it. Light and yet still sexy. My only critique is that it doesn't last all day long.

Interesting

I'm not in love with this scent but I do like it. It's too heavy for me when I first put it on but after it's been on for a while the heavy notes are gone and the lighter notes linger. It is a very warm yellow scent in my opinion, and it is very different from anything else I've ever smelled.
