This perfumer discovered a love for fragrance as a child in Mexico, when bath time was followed with a good spray of Agua de Colonia Sanborns. After training as an architect, the New York City transplant switched direction last year, launching his perfume line, Arquiste (Arquiste.com). Here, his Mexico City favorites.

2. Chic by Accident “This boutique in a 1920s mansion is filled with fanciful, fabulous mid-century furniture and decorative objects.” Laguna Tamiahua 99; ChicbyAccident.com
3. Legión Americana: “This newly opened bar keeps the familiar dive feeling alive.” Celaya 25
4. Galeria Daniel Liebsohn: “In the heart of the city’s antique district, this gallery is a mecca for eclectic and bizarre relics.” London 161-49 Plaza del Angel; Liebsohn.com.mx
