Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire 100ml

The last days of Tsarist Russia celebrated with an intoxicating blend of leather, birch wood and amber. With decadent top notes of vodka, champagne and rare Asian peppers from Samarkand. Ideal for the modern Vronsky. Presented in a bronze coloured box. In Tolstoy's Words: Alexey Vronsky "Vronsky was a squarely built, dark man, not very tall, with a good-humored, handsome, and exceedingly calm and resolute face. Everything about his face and figure, from his short-cropped black hair and freshly shaven chin down to his loosely fitting, brand-new uniform, was simple and at the same time elegant." Anna Karenina, Part I, Chapter 14
Leather, Birch Wood and Amber.

"Anna Karenina. Alexey Vronsky. I listened to their love story on the Home Service when I was 12 years old when I began to be a feminist. I railed at the social mores, which took the child away from the wife of a loveless marriage, I wept at the hypocrisy of the society. I adored but eventually despised Vronsky for his moral cowardice. What a precocious child! And I vowed never to chuck myself under a train for love or despair. Ever. Hurrah for that awareness, not least of which allows me to buy my own jewellery and to choose, buy and wear my own beloved Parfum d’Empire Ambre Russe, a mixture of resinous amber, woods, spices, vodka and champagne, a swirling, louche memento of long-gone Tsarist Russia. It’s androgynous. I can wear it to reflect a poise and confidence which I have learnt over nearly 70 years. I breathe in and I sense the beloved ‘березу’ (birch tree) of the Russians, and the shock of fine frosty vodka. And so do others. It intrigues them, they and the scent follow me. It surprises and satisfies. Ваше здоровье! Cheers!"
