During Día de Muertos, a sea of unmistakable aromas fills the streets and homes in Mexican towns and cities. Ofrendas are adorned with copal, exquisite dishes and cempasúchil flowers, meanwhile, local markets overflow with fruits, spices and sweets that give off fragrances that fill the air and awaken the senses.
The result is an enveloping atmosphere that leaves an indelible mark on one’s memory; an aromatic landscape that any one of us could recognize with our eyes closed.

The decoration of this decanter expresses the importance of the cempasúchil flower during the celebration of Día de Muertos and seeks to evoke its enchanting aroma.
A deep marigold glaze covers the decanter, darkening in color as it reaches the base. On the back of the piece, a dreamlike illustration depicts a fantastic scene in which a cast of folkloric characters accompanied by xoloitzcuintles (Mexican hairless dogs) participate in a harvest of cempasúchil flowers of miraculous proportions.
The front of the decanter is adorned with an ornament bathed in 24-karat gold with a fine patina finish featuring bas-relief representations of the legends related to Día de Muertos and an arrangement of encapsulated cempasúchil petals.
The intricate piece was made by hand by artisans from Tesistán, a community in the state of Jalisco, over the course of two weeks.
