Ella is inspired by a sultry night of disco, plunging necklines and champagne-soaked skin. Lights flash and strangers kiss, but it’s her, dancing, that commands the attention. She moves, panther-like, her honeyed skin creating an addictive sweetness and magnetism that only a deep chypre fragrance can deliver. She’s met her match on the dance floor, and it’s her animalic instinct that follows him outside, onto the golden beach, under a silvery moon.

Carlos Huber first pursued the study of architecture at Universidad Iberoamericana and the École Spéciale d’Architecture, Paris. A move to Spain awakened his love for the aromatic environments of the Mediterranean, and strengthened his interest in architectural history. This led him to New York City, where he graduated. Turning to his longtime love of perfumery, Carlos Huber studied fragrance development and collaborated with internationally recognised noses Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Yann Vasnier in order to recapture the olfactive notes of historical moments.

Arquiste was honoured on January 2013 with the Fashion Group International’s 16th Annual Rising Star Award for best Beauty/Fragrance Entrepreneur Brand.

Several of our fragrances have been chosen as finalists for the Parfum Extraordinaire award (the industry’s top honour for olfactive works of art) at the United States Fragrance Foundation Awards.
