The Scents of Conquest…Amourous conquest, spiritual conquest, self-conquest… Perfume is a quest, perfume is an exploration. To achieve this conquest, Parfum d’Empire goes back to the original sense of scent, from time immemorial and in every culture: seduction and spirituality. Parfum d’Empire, the power of the noblest raw materials pushed to excess.
How far is too far? Marc-Antoine Corticchiato has chosen a physical, fearless, baroque perfumery. As the nose and owner of his brand, with a PhD in the chemistry of perfume plants, he is sole sovereign of his lab. His unique profile affords him total artistic autonomy. Freedom isn’t given, but conquered! Parfum d’Empire combines an exuberant use of rich materials with the sense of balance that characterizes the Grand French manner.
Parfum d’Empire: an invitation to conquer the realm of the senses.
