This fragrance was created based on a sensation felt at a specific time of year. An olfactory experience to delight its nature-loving parfumier, who spends as much time as he can in his garden. Simple yet delicious, fleeting but unforgettable... Winter has just ended and the air is still crisp, but the first rays of spring are here. It is the moment when the citrus fruit trees that have been living in the orangery are reconnected with the outdoors. What could be more run-of-the-mill for a gardener than the act of bringing out the lemon and orange trees? But for parfumier Alberto Morillas, this familiar ritual is one of the most fragrant around, not to mention the most tender. Vert Empire evokes this moment in a composition with aromatic intensity and zest. Essence of mandarin and petitgrain conjure citrus fruits nestled in the middle of their leaves. The freshness of morning is brought out by paradisone and a hint of cardamom. Then, little by little, the scent of the earth and trees builds with a woody, slightly mineral intensity, carried by the pairing of sandalwood and ambrox with angelica and sage. Like a tutor giving instruction, this note signs the whole composition, weaving between the green of the foliage and sweet bitterness of the fruits.
A word from the perfumer:
“I wanted to offer another idea of freshness, something greener and more familiar, without crossing into a cologne. I was therefore inspired by the green and natural vivacity of my garden at the end of winter. I also had in mind another place, famous for its beauty and history, the orangery of the Château de Malmaison. The name, Vert Empire, and the design of the perfume are a tribute to it. Beyond this, I wholeheartedly believe that everyday scents can present perfumers with wonderful olfactory leads. You just need to be attentive to the details and keep your senses switched on, like a musician listening to the first few notes building.”
