LIMITED EDITION FRAGRANCES
Fueguia 1833 perfume is formulated from exotic ingredients, some, never used before in perfumery.
Many o f the ingredients are the o riginal species of Patagonia, known from traditiona l medicine and previously never used in perfumery. These ingredients being used in perfumery are also a great challenge due to the fact that climate change affects the availability, quality and prices of the different botanical species.
Because of the scarcity of these ingredients, Fueguia 1833 produces only limited series of fragrances, using the finest natural ingredients available at the time of production. Each bottle shows the year and the lot number of the fragrance that is enclosed – a progressive number from 1 to 400 being engraved on a crystal bottle of each perfume.
Each edition has its uniqueness due to the vegetable origin of our raw materials, which might present some slight aromatic variations between the cropping of one year and the following one. Each creation tells the stories of rich cultural and natural landscapes. This olfactive storytelling is composed of a palette of over 1,200 botanical ingredients. Unexpected and exceptional materials are blended to surprise and delight the senses.
Cactus Flowers (echinopsis atacamensis).
HEAD NOTES - Head notes are the first notes perceived after a perfume is sprayed on the skin, and they are also the most volatile. As they are minuscule molecules that quickly evaporate, these notes contribute to our first impression of a fragrance. Their role is primarily commercial, as they are often only perceived for a brief period of time, typically no longer than 5-10 minutes. In most instances, head notes are perceived as fresh, thus they are often derived from citrus fruits, flowers or exotic fruits.
Cedarwood (cedrus deodara).
HEART NOTES - When top notes soften or subdue, heart notes emerge. As their name suggests, these are the notes at the 'heart' of a perfume; the central part of it. They accompany a perfume throughout its evolution, lasting from 15 minutes up to 1 hour. The most commonly used heart notes are soft and velvety, often characterized by flowers such as rose, jasmine or lavender, as well as hints of spice or vanilla. These notes are very important because, if a perfume's formula is well constructed, they should gently guide us towards base notes.
Mint (mentha spicata).
BASE NOTES - Base notes are generally persistent, strong and powerful. In some cases, they appear 1 hour after a perfume is sprayed on the skin and persist until the following day. Among the most renowned and functional base notes are Oud, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Cedarwood. These are highly crucial notes to a perfume's unfolding, as they sometimes also help to make other notes composing a perfume stand out for longer periods of time. A perfume's base notes may sometimes also include odours of animal origin, amber, and musk, which are now synthetically created, as they are forbidden in their natural state.
The skin's pH can vary on a day-to-day basis and for a variety of reasons, thus so can the fragrances we wear.
These variations can be caused by:
- the intake of medicines for a certain amount of time;
- atmospheric and environmental changes that cause high sweating of the skin;
- changes in food consumption and diet.

Laboratorio de Perfumes.
Founded in 2010 in Buenos Aires by Julian Bedel, Fueguia 1833 is a unique concept in the universe of perfumery. The source of inspiration is Argentina; the land being an inexhaustible source of stimuli for creating new fragrances, and the brand being a tribute to the history, art, music and nature that distinguishes the vibrant culture of South America.
The heart of the brand lies in Patagonia, within its virgin territories, fiercely dominated by nature. This is the environment in which one can find those native sought-after species, cultivated and distilled with support by the local community.
