Eau de parfum
The horse’s breath
Iris is the most precious material in perfumery. In EQUISTRIUS, no less than three different extracts of Florentine iris were used to express all of its facets: violet, powder, suede… and even a surprising dark chocolate aroma. Delicate ambrette butter adds a natural vegetal musk that melts on skin. Ambergris and sandalwood wrap EQUISTRIUS in their powdery halo. EQUISTRIUS, as exquisitely elegant as a thoroughbred…
It is as a tribute to the “gleaming horse” who gave him his greatest victories that Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, a competition rider, gave the name EQUISTRIUS to the noblest perfume in his collection, built around the noblest of raw materials and inspired by humankind’s noblest conquest…
The fragrance of iris is as opulent as Renaissance Florence which made the flower its emblem, and as variegated as the rainbow that was said to carry Iris, the messenger of the Greek gods. Its stately and serene odour is extracted not from the flower but from the root, and must be aged several years before it develops.
