Coqui Coqui Perfumeria stands firm as one of the founding pillars of the Coqui Coqui Lifestyle Group.
At the heart of Coqui Coqui Perfumeria lies the Yucatan. The natural tropical scents of the region inspire every fragrance, as does the landscape, people, culture and lifestyle, in addition to the state’s rich, centuries-old history of perfume production.
After Spanish conquistadors arrived in Mexico in the 16th century, Franciscan monks worked closely with native Mayans to document the the entrancing floras and faunas of the region.
Founder and creative director Nicolas Malleville continues such lineage, rooting the Coqui Coqui Perfumeria in the Yucatan itself.
Each Coqui Coqui Residence and Spa has its own personalised fragrance. The dewy coconut scent of Coco Coco is inspired by the palm trees scattered along Tulum’s white sand beaches. The lime and mint Menli fragrance reflects the lush gardens of Coba which has both plants growing there. The scent of Rosas Secas reflects the town of Valladolid with its strong cultural character, specifically inspired by the deeply religious festival of Madonna de Candelaria. The latest Coqui Coqui Residence and Spa is situated in the Yucatan’s capital of Merida, a city surrounded by tobacco plantations; and so Tabaco was born, a sophisticated warm, rich, elegant scent, much like Merida itself.
The Coqui Coqui Perfumeria boasts thirteen fragrances to date, produced as individual scents and available as other products, from bath oils to room scents and beeswax candles.
Coqui Coqui Perfumeria’s scents are transportive, encouraging the wearer to escape to a simpler, more relaxed way of life, wherever their imagination might take them…
