Deep in the heart of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula lies a string of Coqui Coqui perfumerias, spas and boutique hotels, or residencias — in Coba, Valladolid, Merida and Izamal.
It’s a hidden world of untold beauty for those who seek a less-traveled path; a universe unlocked by the release of scent from a gold-capped bottle or the lighting of a black wax candle.
The region’s bounty of tropical flowers, woods and spices inspires every Coqui Coqui fragrance, as do its lush jungles, ancient Mayan culture, community of skilled artisans, and the Luxe Bohemian lifestyle personified by brand founders Nicolas Malleville and Francesca Bonato.
The state itself is a rich, historic center of perfume production. Sixteenth Century Franciscan monks worked closely with natives to document the area’s entrancing flora and fauna. Designed to be transportive, Coqui Coqui scents invite the wearer to escape to a simpler, more authentic life, wherever that may be.
