Elements Showcase: Arquiste Parfumer

08 February 2012, 18.35 | Posted in perfume | No comments »


Arquiste Parfumeur created by Carlos Huber is a collection or scents made of rare ingredients and capturing olfactive notes with historical connections. Each scent feels like you stepped into a wonderful time capsule, but in this case the idea is not about that which is outdated, but more about a feeling of nostalgia and intimacy. Like a sniff of your loved one’s scent on her  favorite sweater or a childhood vacation memory.

While we are fans of the complete collection favorites include, “Infanta en Flor” (floral musky amber), “Fleur de Louis” (woody floral) and of course “Anima Dulcis,” a blend of cocoa absolute, Mexican vanilla, cinnamon and chilli infusion. Lovely in every way, these are the  kind of scents you cannot help but get attached to… see more here.

Highsnobette-Andrea Maack

For the Elements Showcase, Reyjavik-based artist and designer Andrea Maack created a gallery-like wall installation, where attendees could each own a signed  piece sprayed with their favorite scent. Individually titled “Craft,” “Smart,” “Sharp,” “Dark,” and “Silk,” according to press each fragrance represents:

“An entirely original work method based on the interpretation and translation of visual cues and how scent ties together the elements of the artwork.”

 ”Smart,” “Dark” and “Silk” were favorites. See more images on the next page.

Elements Showcase: Strange Invisible Perfumes

Strange Invisible Perfumes Zoziac

We had the opportunity to visit Strange Invisible Perfumes at Element Showcase this week and found ourselves enamored with the simplicity and refinement of their  concept. Founded by Alexandra Balahoutis,  each scent is made of certified organic botanicals. Devoid or animal products (hence vegan!) or artificial components, the scents have a depth that I previous only thought would be attainable with some animal musk , thankfully that is not the case. Our favorites include “Fire &Cream,” “Dimanche,” and the newly launched collection of Zodiac scents (above).  For more info visit  here.
