THE JUNGLE IS DARK BUT FULL OF DIAMONDS.
It is the year 1831, the year Charles Darwin is invited to go on a great expedition around the world.
After five years aboard the HMS Beagle, and visiting several continents, including South America, Darwin returns with dozens of unique discoveries… perfumes from another world.
DISCOVER ARPA STUDIOS
Arpa Studios is a fragrance brand founded in 2020 that combines scent, music, architecture, and imagery into an immersive experience provoking all the senses. Inspired by his own synesthesia, founder Barnabé Fillion, the former in-house perfumer at Aesop, visualizes fragrances as invisible landscapes of translucent color, memory, sound, and material.
Core scents include Arco Spettro, inspired by the acidic craters in Dallol, Ethiopia; Fosforo, a petitgrain and iris scent evoking the waters surrounding the island of Kyushu, Japan; and Recedere, a blend of licorice, neroli, and plaster that aims to conjure a plaster studio in the Belgian Blue Forest. With its limited edition bottles hand-blown by artist Jochen Holz, Arpa Studios is a collaborative brand for the fragrance connoisseur.
DISCOVER FUEGUIA 1833
Founded in 2010 in Buenos Aires by Julian Bedel, Fueguia 1833 is a unique concept in the universe of niche perfumery, synonymous with craftsmanship, innovation, exotism and sustainability.
Fueguia 1833 is a tribute to the indigenous communities of South America, guardians of the aromatic and medicinal plants of their lands, and an ode to their preservation. The story of Fueguia Basket – a native girl from Tierra del Fuego kidnapped in the early 19th century by British commander Robert FitzRoy and disowned by her family upon her return home years later – inspired the brand name as a symbolic representation of Imperialism’s downside.
Fueguia Basket’s character also appears in ”Voyage of the Beagle”, the journal of a very young Charles Darwin who embarked on the same vessel during the expedition where he would write ”On the Origin of Species”.
Inspired by the boundless virgin territory of South America, an inexhaustible source of stimuli, Fueguia 1833 was conceived as an homage to the history, art, music, nature, and local communities that distinguish the vibrant culture of the territory, represented through every collection.
Cultural and natural landscapes are portrayed through each creation in an olfactive storytelling composed by a palette of exotic botanical ingredients.
