Parfum d'Empire - Osmanthus Interdite
Fruity and musky with a velvety sensuality.
The dragon of the Middle Empire is more than ever spitting its fire ... The capitalists of the communist regime triumphant, conquering China of the 21st century by their gargantuan projects. They are modernising the millenary Empire and driving more than a quarter of humanity towards a prodigious destiny.
In this world all is based on the senses, meditation refuses the duality of the body and the soul. Nature and Man are no longer separated into two kingdoms but form one community with a common destiny and philosophy which is millenary, rich and unique. This philosophy finds its roots in the "Yi Jing": through observation wise men could predict the way the world would go and the oracles where regarded as gods and thus advisors to the Princes of the Forbidden City.
Based on this ancestral wisdom, perfumes represent the movement of life. They are used as the privileged medium between heaven and earth, between the visible and the invisible. Perfumes transform substance into energy.
Osmanthus Interdite is composed around one sole heady flower, the osmanthus. A singular bush that blooms in China, becoming in this case the symbol of this millenary wisdom. Its small white flowers of a delicate pallor express purity, serenity and stability.
Osmanthus Interdite opens on a chinese tea note rich in character, then evolves around a floral note of osmanthus with its apricot aromas, which in turn are exalted by the rose oil and sambac jasmine.
The osmanthus becomes sensual and velvety, mingling its fruity notes with the crystalline purity of the musks.
The osmanthus flowers were selected for their exceptional quality. They develop not only a perfume but also a flavour.
