Within the prestigious Polanco district of Mexico City, Xinú invites visitors into a beguiling, secret garden, where an inspired range of perfumes, skincare, and home scents tantalize the senses. Energized by the verdant environments found throughout Mexico’s diverse regions, pristine raw materials are infused into biologically safe and indulgent products. Behold the naturalist’s table, a cinematic display of organic and hand-crafted objects which evoke the brand’s all-encompassing journey from the great outdoors to the vivacious enhancement of bare skin. Otherworldy vessels of blown glass and minimalist wood lids embrace Xinú’s lavish scents, which may find new life as a delicate vase or meditative treasure.
Aguamadera is a sparkling and diaphanous masterpiece of agave, green lime, guaiac wood, and cedar wood, deftly exploring an innovative mezcal theme with vivid moments of salt and sea air. The glow of smoky mesquite woods and powdery Mexican vanilla beans elevates Copāla to sensual proportions, imparting a mystical fantasy shaped by nimble pink pepper and golden copal. Ummo pays sincere homage to tobacco, interweaving luminous tonka bean, cedar wood, and juniper for an elusive and poetic scent.
