Merida by Cire Trudon

Empress Carlota of Mexico

Cire Trudon has invited Arquiste Parfumeur to create a unique new scent for one of its candles. Arquiste Parfumeur has chosen to celebrate this esteemed Franco-Mexican collaboration by recreating a balmy night described by Empress Carlota of Mexico on her visit to the city of Merida, Yucatan in 1865. Centering on the exuberant, multi-layered fragrance of the guava tree, it evokes succulent ripe fruit, intoxicating blossoms, foliage and bark, enveloped by elegant woody notes of mahogany and "palo primavera", with just a hint of firework gunpowder reminiscent of fireworks. An altogether intriguing, sumptuous scent.
