Azemour Les Orangers Eau de Parfum

"From time immemorial and in every culture, perfume has been about seduction and spirituality. With Parfum dEmpire, I wanted to bring it back to its original meaning, its erotic and sacred origins. Amorous conquest, spiritual conquest, self-conquest: perfume is a conquest, perfume is an exploration. To give a contemporary expression to this tradition, I draw on the noblest of raw materials, but also on my emotions and on my intuition, because nothing is more universal than what is most intimate.
"The breath of the gods and the emotion of the flesh My scents are an invitation to explore the most complex and mysterious of empires: the realm of the senses.
"If all my scents are a part of myself, this one is particularly dear to me."
It is his love for the land where his family put down their roots that Marc-Antoine Corticchiato expresses in the scent of paradise. A paradise lost and regained through the alchemy of perfumery
A tribute to Azemmour, one of the most ancient cities of the kingdom of Morocco, a Moslem and Jewish place of pilgrimage; a tribute to his parents' orange grove and to his long horseback rides on the lands that stretch along the Oum Er r'Bia wadi up to the ocean
The golden light of the Moroccan Atlantic coast suffuses the top notes of AZEMOUR, a blend of sparking citruses dominated by the zest and flesh of orange, set in clementine, tangerine, grapefruit and citrus. Coriander, cumin, black pepper and pink pepper add their vibrancy to this burst of flavours; blackcurrant and galbanum set it in a dark green nest of leaves.
Then AZEMOUR speaks its heart with the freshness of neroli, intensified by geranium, fleshed out by suave, honeyed orange blossom absolute and delicately spicy old-fashioned rose.
Hay, moss and henna extracts conjure dry grass exhaling the days heat in the orange grove. Wood notes trace the undulating silhouettes of cypresses in the Atlantic wind. A tinge of saltiness evokes dunes swept with ocean spray.
