I was thrilled when the editors of All Things Fashion DC asked me to cover the Arquiste Parfumeur event at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Columbia Heights. Unfortunately I had a minor gaffe with mixing up dates on my calendar (apologies again Yvette and John) and ended up rushing at the last minute to get there. The event absolutely did not disappoint and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Wednesday evening found the Mexican Cultural Institute on 16th St full of perfume lovers and supporters of the Arquiste Parfumeur line. Patrons sat in every available chair and lined the ornately decorated walls to hear Carlos Huber and Rodrigo Flores-Roux discuss restoring Mexico’s role in perfumery. Both Mexico City natives, Huber and Flores-Roux kept guests entertained throughout their hour-long presentation, taking the audience through the research, history, and scents for each of their six perfumes (as well as a seventh which is to be released soon).
