There is a strong connection between our sense of smell and memories, and surely there are certain scents that take you back to very specific times in your past. Coqui Coqui’s perfumes are born with this purpose in mind, to transport us through our senses to time spent in Yucatán and to invoke the state’s different elements, landscapes, and vegetation.
It all begins in their lab in Valladolid, La Perfumería, which is also the brand’s flagship store. Here, each fragrance is created by Yucatecan hands following artisanal production methods and utilizing local flowers, fruits, herbs, and wood as their inspiring main ingredients. With each scent, you are flooded with memories of Yucatán: the frangipani flowers after the morning dew, a freshly squeezed sour orange, the rosewater your grandmother wore, or the green leaves of an agave.
All of Coqui Coqui’s fragrances are timeless, unisex, and available in a variety of products made to nurture both your body and home. From sumptuous bath oils, soaps, and colognes to sophisticated beeswax candles and scent diffusers that bring a touch of luxury and pleasure to everyday life. To discover the entire collection, all you need to do is visit one of the storefronts in Valladolid, Mérida, Izamal, or Cobá.
Once you’re finished with the fragrance presentation at any of Coqui Coqui’s shops, you will also be free to proceed into the tasting room to sample the infusions, spices, chocolates, coffees, and honeys by Sabores Coqui Coqui.
This line goes beyond the creation of gourmet products by combining unexpected flavors, scents, textures, and presentations. For example, in their honey infused with Papantla vanilla, not only will you taste this additional ingredient, but you will also feel and even hear the crunch of miniscule vanilla seeds in contrast with the smooth, sweet honey. A completely immersive experience for all the senses.
But if you truly want the full sensory experience, Coqui Coqui hosts guests at five residences that conform The Only One Collection. Here, the amenities and top-notch services are for you alone, making for a perfect getaway with your partner or staycation. Each one-suite residence has its own personality and adopts the essence of the city in which it’s located, from mystical Izamal to modern and classic Mérida.
If you’re looking to take home a souvenir, either for yourself or to give to someone special, a keepsake that captivates the senses will be sure to bring back memories of Yucatán and can be found at Coqui Coqui.
