Creator of Parfum d’Empire, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, launches his latest artisanal perfumes where the most noble essential oils play a predominant role.
Marc-Antoine Corticchiato interprets rare and fleeting moments thus allowing us to penetrate the heart of these raw materials that the Imperial civilizations always cherished and honored. The opulent raw materials used in perfumery were coveted throughout the centuries because of their refinement, their medicinal, magic and erotic properties, and their use in religious rituals.
For each fragrance, rare materials have been specifically chosen to interpret a great civilization, in a manner that is both unique and very contemporary.
The Parfum D'Empire concept is the olfactive trail of different historical Empires... based on historical researches and then translated into modern fragrances.
Each Parfum D'Empire fragrance can be worn by both men and women.
Of Corsican origin, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato was born in Morocco. His childhood and adolescent years were spent between the orange fields of the Moroccan countryside and the famous scent of the Corsican brush. Graduated in chemistry, he then completed his training at the renowned school of Perfumery, ISIPCA, in Versailles.
Marc-Antoine began his professional career as a university researcher in charge of the research laboratory analyzing plants to perfume and their extraction methods, especially distillation.
