The Ultimate Day: Mexico City

How parfumer Carlos Huber chills out in his hometown.

Originally from Mexico City, parfumer (and architect by trade) Carlos Huber recently launched Arquiste, his debut line of fragrances that aims to resonate with imagined scents of historical times and events. He’s created six unique blends (like 'Aleksandr,' inspired by Russian writer Aleksandr Pushkin’s final duel, and 'Fleur De Louis,' which was conceived when he visited the Isle of Pheasants) and is working on his next olfaction — hint: it’s going to be a very masculine interpretation of a Gardenia. Meanwhile, Huber took us through his ideal stress-free 24 hours in his original stomping grounds: Mexico City.

Huber’s Note: To avoid stress, the most important thing in Mexico City is to avoid traffic and long distances, so these guidelines make the most of staying close to the urban triangle of Chapultepec Park and the Condesa and Roma neighborhoods.
