Details

WAZAMBA takes its name from a musical instrument, a type of sistrum used in West African rituals. Just as the deep, full sounds of percussion resonate during African initiation ceremonies, this mystical scent resonates with the intoxicating, resinous notes of rare ingredients. The precious resins and woods burned in the sacred rituals of many different cultures are brought together: deeply resonant Somali incense, Kenyan myrrh, Ethiopian opoponax, Indian sandalwood and Moroccan cypress.

This intense, powerful fragrance starts unfolding its mysteries with a soaring note of incense, the main axis of the composition, bolstered by aldehydes.  Cypress weaves its green, earthy notes into the scent, as sandalwood wraps it in creaminess, conjuring India where its smoke is thought to purify the spirit and enhance meditation. WAZAMBA’s long-lasting sillage blends the liquorice accents of myrrh, aromatic fir balsam absolute and the forbidden-fruit note of apple, melting into burnt cistus labdanum.

 

Why we're addicted: The woody, resinous scent of sacred rituals creates an extraordinary, very personal blend.

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 PdD 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 To achieve this powerful idea, he goes back to the original sense of scent, from the earliest historical references and in every culture - seduction and sacred spirituality.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.
