Furioso. The term, used as a direction in music, means to be played rapidly and with passion Because Corsica, where Marc- Antoine Corticchiato has his roots, is never restful. It sends your eyes, your nose, your heart into overdrive. So when youre close to bursting with sensations and emotions, you take to the maquis.
The perfumers new tribute to his homeland was inspired by the moving scent that greets the returning traveler: the green, intense, facetted fragrance of lentiscus, a shrub that grows on the sunny slopes of Corsica, from the highlands to the Mediterranean seaside.
But Corsica Furiosa is far more than that: the quintessence of everything that makes the Island of Beauty unique, fierce and strong. The violent contrasts of its smells, colors, reliefs, passions, secrets
Since everyone in Corsica has their own recipe for it, a fiery swig of eau-de-vie sets the top notes ablaze. In its combustible wake, it trails the green bite of nepita, a local variety of wild mint. Crisp green tomato leaf intensifies the natural vibe.
When lentiscus kicks in, the plot thickens. The headstrong essential oil is the first to take off. Peppery, fruity, aromatic, then earthy with mushroom overtones, it thrusts itself into the heart of Corsica Furiosa. Then the absolute takes over with a smoother shade of green with hay, blond tobacco, honey and straw accents, darkened with a tinge of licorice. A third type of extraction, obtained through a special technique, adds wafts of resin, spices and leather that draw you deeper into the mountain
