EL Eau de Parfum
FOUGERE - SPICY - WOODY
December 1978, Armando’s Le Club, Acapulco, Mexico
Nighttime at Acapulco’s sultriest disco. Revelry on the dance floor. In the heat of the moment, he smiles coyly and motions to the beach outside, hinting at a midnight swim. He unbuttons his shirt, flashing bronzed skin and the scent of his cologne, a virile muskiness loaded with patchouli, oakmoss and elegant woody notes. A masculine impression of a day under the sun, intensified by the thrill of the night.
Why we're addicted: This sensual and playful scent is a masculine impression of a classic masculine cologne after hours on the skin.
Clary sage enriched, Moroccan Rosemary, Egyptian Geranium, Cinnamon leaves, Orange flower water, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Castoreum and Fougére accord.
ÉL and Ella were inspired by the decadence and glamour of Acapulco in the 70s. December in Acapulco was the obligatory stop in the jet set calendar, with lots of beach and pool time and endless partying. The 70s were an era of glamour and sensuality heightened in here by the heat, the magnificence of the bay and magical sunsets.
With Él and Ella Arquiste was looking to create the impression of a scent macerating on skin, something more sensual and playful. The idea was to recreate the scent of HIM and HER just as they leave the disco, they come together and embrace…what would each smell like? HIM with his unbuttoned shirt and his burly scent, HER with her plunging neckline and her voluptuous femininity. In ÉL and ELLA skin, sweat, cigarettes, champagne, sand and heat all come together in a sophisticated way.
Made of the highest Italian quality with Arquiste's signature ‘A’ engraved metal cap, as well as the newest technology for an invisible spray tube.
