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.
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.
