“ With Parfum d’Empire, I wanted to reconnect with the primary meaning of perfume, the one found in all cultures: eroticism and the sacred. Because seduction and spirituality have always been the deepest meaning of perfume, its original truth.
Amorous conquest, spiritual conquest, self-conquest… perfume is conquest, perfume is exploration. ” – Parfums d’Empire official website
Wazamba is an amber woody composition with a base of frankincense, myrrh, frankincense, cypress, red apple, aldehydes, labdanum, plum, resin, opoponax, sandalwood and fern. The opening of the fragrance is warm notes of resins, incense and cypress, which blends wonderfully with other ingredients. In the background there is a hint of plum and apple. The smell is intense and warms our senses for long hours. In the next stage, a few fresh notes appear. We have fern, aldehydes and creamy sandalwood. The fragrance still has its resinous face. The parameters of the fragrance are sensational. The composition lasts up to 10 hours and has great projection. Wazamba is a fragrance for brave fans of niche fragrances and all resins and incense. For me, this is one of the best personal discoveries of the year.
Vetiver Bourbon is a woody and earthy composition, in which we find two types of vetiver, cloves, angelica, iris and ambrette. The opening of the fragrance definitely belongs to vetiver, which, combined with angelica and iris root, creates an earthy-woody aura. With each passing moment, vetiver gains in strength and becomes even more aromatic. In the next stage, we get a pleasant note of musk, which envelops us with an interesting scent. The vetiver is still very noticeable. I love this aromatic ingredient, and Vetiver Bourbon is for me the ultimate elixir for vetiver fans with the best parameters on the market.
Tabaco Tabou is a sweet tobacco composition with tobacco, narcissus, honey, helichrysum, musk, grass and leather. The opening of the fragrance is a combination of the sweetness of honey, tobacco and narcissus. This strong and interesting combination promises a wonderful olfactory journey, which we will embark on at any moment. In the next stage, we start to feel the narcissus note more strongly, which is slightly soapy in its fragrance. There are notes of helichrysum, which together with honey create an exceptionally sweet and herbal aroma. I’m a fan of such interesting combinations and that’s why I love niche perfumes. You won’t find a fragrance like this anywhere else. I’m delighted! Another wonderful and very original, and at the same time completely wearable work of the master Corticchiato.
