Argentine model and polo player Nacho Figueras’ new collection offers fragrances that are globally minded in both conception and mission.

Whether it’s watching him race across the polo field or star in a fragrance campaign, it’s impossible to resist the allure of Nacho Figueras. The Argentine star bottled his magnetic magic with a recently debuted collection of six scents, The Ignacio Figueras Collection. Each unisex fragrance is inspired by international polo hot spots frequented by the U.S. BlackWatch Polo Team captain—Aspen, Buenos Aires, Dubai, Jaipur, Palm Beach and Windsor.
For the bottlings, Figueras collaborated with master perfumer Carlos Benaim (the nose behind iconic blends for Frédéric Malle, Calvin Klein, Givenchy and Prada). “When we began to work on this collection, I knew we wanted this to be a culmination of all my experiences, bringing the feelings and scents from every kind of paradise to people across the globe so they can indulge in the same sense of luxury wherever they are,” says Figueras. “The locations that inspired this collection evoke sentimental memories of time spent there with my wife, Delfina, and our children.”

In keeping with Figueras’ charitable spirit, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Sentebale—the nonprofit founded by close friend the Duke of Sussex that supports the mental health and well-being of children affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. “I’m looking forward to sharing these fragrances with the world, which allow me to bring my love for my family, polo, fashion and design together with my dedication to philanthropy,” Figueras adds.
