What does style smell like? Currently the eau de jour is being conjured by former architect turned master perfumer, Carlos Huber, founder of Arquiste. Specialising in historic preservation, the handsome Mexican now based in New York, has turned his love of time and place to the world of fine fragrance. Known for creating scents that recall a moment in history, the 34-year-old was selected by global tastemaker and J Crew creative director Jenna Lyons to bottle the brand's signature scent, as well as capture the fragrance of the luxurious St Regis hotels worldwide (a candle of which will be available to buy in Fenwick next year). We couldn’t think of anyone better to guide us through finding the perfect perfume just in time for Christmas.
