Misfit is centred on the idea of things to go in and out of fashion, of fads that go from the mainstream to the fringes of society, and from the outside back in. Of making the undesirable, desirable again. Instead of following a trend, being a misfit and reclaiming the elegance of patchouli.

Inspired by the 19th century courtesans and bohemians that embraced the scent of patchouli, MISFIT won the Fragrance Foundation 2021 Award for Best Independent Perfume. A scent balanced between regal and rebel, where cashmere-like ambery notes smooth out the carnal earthiness associated with patchouli and counter-culture. In MISFIT what was once decadent is now made addictively desirable. With main notes of: French lavender, ambrette seed absolute, patchouli, Venezuelan tonka bean and tolu balsam.

September 1877, Port of Marseille, France.
In a bedroom in the City of Flesh, a Kashmiri shawl drapes decadently over the bed. Once extremely coveted, the shawls are now out of fashion with the bourgeois, their distinctive patchouli scent a victim of their downfall. Adopted by bohemians and courtesans, the fragrance mixes with French lavender, musky ambers and exotic balsams. With a new edge, and in the hands of misfits with style, the ‘undesirable’ becomes desired again.

MEET THE MAKER

ARQUISTE Parfumeur

Founded by Mexican-born architect, restoration expert and fragrance designer Carlos Huber, ARQUISTE Parfumeur is a scent collection that transports you to evocative moments and historical sites. The name is a combination of words arquitectura (architecture) and artiste (artist), signifying the driving influence and inspiration behind the collection.

Each scent restores a particular olfactive experience by using rare ingredients identified through meticulous research. Interpreted with master perfumers, this background translates stories, landscapes and architecture into top, heart, and base notes. Using high quality, sustainable and responsibly sourced materials, the ARQUISTE scent collection allows you to unlock personal revelations and experience history in a most intimate way.

Drawn to Mexico’s architecture and history, and a passionate traveler since young, Carlos Huber first pursued the study of architecture and historic preservation at prestigious universities in his hometown of Mexico City, in Paris and New York, where he graduated with honors in Historic Preservation at Columbia University. His diverse experience includes meticulous residential and commercial projects as well as art installations concerned with the interpretation of historic sites.

Turning to his longtime love of fragrance, Huber was mentored by master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, studying perfume history, evaluation and fragrance development. Bridging the worlds of architectural and perfume history through the lens of restoration led him to collaborate with Flores-Roux and perfumer Yann Vasnier to create ARQUISTE, developing scents that restore authentic historical experiences.

ARQUISTE has garnered awards from organisations like the Fragrance Foundation and Fashion Group International as well as international media, establishing Huber as a fragrance designer dedicated to meticulous storytelling, authenticity and sustainability. By the hand of perfumers like Flores-Roux, Vasnier and Calice Becker, ARQUISTE’s creations are rich, transportive and layered.
