This sultry fragrance reinvents Musk Tonkin, worshipped for millennia as an aphrodisiac. A lick of salt for the taste of skin, and a heady floral whiff to remind us that perfume links our bodies to the sensuous spells of nature. A liquorous, mulled-fruit accord contrasts with a light, shimmering veil of powder, a drizzle of melting honey, and smooth, fine leather. The scent conjures living flesh heated by pleasure and framed by mossy ink-black depths.

The Chinese have prized Tonkin for centuries for its seductive powers. The smell was considered so heavenly by Islam it was blended into the mortar of some mosques so that the scent would diffuse into the air in the hot sun. It was so penetrating that ships loaded with tea would refuse to carry it for fear it would impregnate their cargo. Musk tonkin, produced by a species of Himalayan deer, has long been considered one of the most precious ingredients of the perfumers palette; it suffuses their blends with a sensual aura that magnifies every other essence.

Why we're addicted: The scent of heated flesh, solar, feline, and subtly leathery evokes a powerful, addictive, erotic wake.

Brand Info

Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, the nose and owner of Parfum d’Empire, believes that perfume is a quest, an exploration... of the emotional soul, the cerebral mind, the physical body and the unbridaled spirit. With a Ph.D. in the chemistry of perfume plants, his lab is his artistic medium and he has the rare privilege of total creative freedom.

His dream for Parfum d’Empire is that it is an invitation to conquer the realm of the senses. Combining an exuberant use of the finest precious ingredients with the feeling of balance that characterizes classic, grand French perfumery, he has developed The Scents of Conquest. To achieve this powerful idea, he goes back to the original sense of scent, from the earliest historical references and in every culture - seduction and sacred spirituality. Parfum d’Empire emphatically pushes the boundaries to excess to create this masterfully-crafted collection that leaves a vibrating impact.
