Parfums d'Empire takes you on a scented journey through history by painting visions of luxury and opulence that marked the Empires of the nineteenth century. From the elegance of the French imperial court to the sumptuous decadence of the Russian monarchy, the places and characters come alive through the fragrances composed by the creative perfumer Marc Antoine Corticchiato. Of Corsican descent, Corticchiato grew up in Morocco, where his early olfactory education began with his exposure to the magnificent smell of blooming orange groves. It was only natural that he would further pursue his passion for scents and study at ISIPCA in Versailles, the most renowned perfumery school in the world.
Fusing perfume and history is the core guiding principle behind Parfums d'Empire, Corticchiato's own brand. Evidence of the perfumer's innate sense of beauty and harmony is in his compositions. Every accord weaves a story, and every fragrance affords a glimpse into a world that has long since passed. If perfume allows one to travel through time, Parfums d'Empire offers the ultimate experience. Let the olfactory journey begin.
