Fueguia 1833 Patagonia Laboratorio de Perfumes is an Argentinean niche perfumery house that was founded by Julian Bedel (the in-house perfumer) and Amalia Amoedo in 2010. Julian Badel, inspired by his ancestors who were naturalists and writers, creates in Buenos Aires his own perfumes which are a reflection of the diversity and exotic flora of South America.
The name originates from tributes to Charles Darwin, Robert Fitz Roy and Fueguia Basket, a native from Tierra del Fuego abducted by Fitz Roy at the age of 12 who returned to Patagonia after three years. During this trip, Darwin’s “Origin of Species” was born.
Fueguia 1833 offers 50 different perfumes in seven collections: 1. Jorge Luis Borges (writer), 2. Destinos (locations), 3. Personajes (people), 4. Fabula Fauna (fauna), 5. Linneo (Carl Linnaeus-inspired, the father of taxonomy), 6. Amalia (dedicated to the beauty of women) and 7. Armonías (music).
The perfumes are hand packed in recyclable glass bottles and wooden suitcases with hand-signed labels. The characteristic wooden boxes are completely hand-made by a carpentry school in Patagonia using the wood from the fallen trees in the Patagonian “Valdiviano” forest.
The species used are native to Patagonia: Nothofagus obliqua (Pellin Oak), Nothofagus nervosa (Evergreen Beech), Nothofaguspumilio Lenga, Nothofagus dombeyi (Coihue), Lomatia hirsuta (Radal) and Austrocedrus Chilensis (Mountain Cypress).
Designer Fueguia 1833 has 62 perfumes in our fragrance base. Fueguia 1833 is a new fragrance brand. The earliest edition was created in 2010 and the newest is from 2014. Fueguia 1833 fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Julian Bedel and Julian Badel.
