Parfum d'Empire

Eau de parfum

The plant by the roots

A materials-driven scent that exalts the primal nature of the precious essence. Here, vetiver owns up to its innate toughness. And even more: to its virility.

In Vétiver Bourbon, Marc-Antoine Corticchiato unshackles it from its overly civilised manners to restore its native elegance. That of a material which, in its raw state, is a fragrance in itself, unique and contrasted.

A homage scent that conjures the iconic vetiver Bourbon it is named after, now extremely rare since it has all but disappeared from the island of La Réunion where it was once widely grown. With its fresh, green, aromatic facets and earthy, mossy, woody tones, it is the richest, most complete vetiver essence. The quality of reference of the ingredient.

A scentscape that evokes the harvest of the fragrant root at dawn, at the exact moment when the robust root is torn from the soil, a memory of Marc-Antoine Corticchiato’s travels to the former Bourbon Island. A volcanic landscape that infuses the mineral facets of vetiver Bourbon essence.
