Set aflame by immortelle, tobacco curls its tawny plumes around a spirited spray of narcissus. A whiff of the savanna, honey, heated skin, wild grass… and a tribute to a plant held sacred by the Indian people of the Americas. Shamanic and penetrating.
Few fragrance houses feature tobacco as a starring note: these days, the stuff gives off a whiff of brimstone. But taboo though it is, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato feels it’s a perfect fit for Parfum d’Empire, since tobacco ties in with one of the initial uses of perfume: sacred rituals. And with its very origin: per fumum. Through smoke.
‘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..’
