Aromas Artisanales de Antigua is an extensive new range of bath and body products with packaging and fragrances inspired by the diverse natural and architectural beauty of Antigua, Guatemala.

About Antigua: A Unesco World Heritage site, Antigua was the capital city of Guatemala until 1776 and is one of the most outstanding and best-preserved Hispanic colonial cities in the world. It has been moved 3 times since its foundation in 1524, and has been devastated by numerous earthquakes but to this day remains nestled in the Panchoy valley between three active volcanoes. The rich volcanic soil of the valley, along with the warm climate in the region, offers the ideal condition for the growth of numerous fruits, plants and flowers, many of which have been the inspiration for the fragrances used in the Aromas Artesanales de Antigua range.

As a poet and wise man once said, "in Guatemala, you can place a pencil in the soil in the morning, by night you will have a tree and by the following morning you will be able to eat it's fruits". The history of Antigua's culture, the roots of which can be traced all the way back to the Mayans, is prevalent throughout the city and is a great source of inspiration for artisans and designers from all over the world.
