The opulence of the Russian Empire is conjured by the golden warmth of ambergris, intensified by vibrant spices, the smoky aroma of Russian tea and the spirituality of incense.
Ambre Russe’s luxurious ambergris expresses the unbridled magnificence of the Russian empire in the days of the last tsars. A baroque, splendorous setting, studded with golden bubbles that catch light even as it goes out, glittering with embroideries, fur-lined cloaks and spectacular dress uniforms…
In the flamboyant world of Ambre Russe, nothing is done in half-measures: parties are as intoxicating and sparkling as the champagne that flowed in Imperial Russia, but they can end in the white brutality of an icy shot of vodka. Ambre Russe also conjures the warmth and comfort of dachas where Russia tea, laced with cinnamon and coriander, is brewed all day long in samovars. Its slightly smoky aroma melds with those of the birch and juniper tar rubbed into the legendary Russian leather.
At last, the golden facets of Ambre Russe are burnished by the incense of the Orthodox Church, before melting into a cloud of musk… And the celebration ends in mystic ecstasy.
‘From time immemorial and in every culture, perfume has been about seduction and spirituality. With Parfum d’Empire, I wanted to bring it back 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..’
