Een volle sensuele geur van de Corsicaanse parfumeur Marc-Antoine Cortichiatto.
Geïnspireerd op het boek Aziyadé van Pierre Loti over zijn verhouding met een harem vrouw; Aziyadé. Het volle en overdadige van deze bij stukken, zeer gedetailleerde roman zit ook in deze geur. Dit parfum is pure verleiding door het donkere fruit, de verwarmende specerijen en het warme, spannende van vanille, tonkabean en wierook.
Zeker een geur die je meevoert op een exotische reis.

Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, of Corsican origin, is born in Morocco. His childhood and youth was divided between the Moroccan countryside - on the land of his parents, in the midst of their citrus plantation - and the Corsican maquis, in the family house in the French town Cuttoli Corticchiato.
He studied chemical analysis of fragrant plants and attended the prestigious perfumers education ISIPCA at Versailles.
In addition to the creation and management of Parfum d'Empire, he is also a teacher for novice perfumers at ISIPCA. Demanding as he is in the choice of natural plant extracts, he set up a production unit of essential oils in 2000 in Madagascar, which he often visits.

I love all the scents of Parfum d ’empire that I have tried so far. Yet I find Aziyade a very special scent. Warm spicy but not too sweet and intrusive. And this great incense scent that comes on after a while and lingers for a long time. I can't get enough of that. Moreover, super service! Everything nicely packed and delivered quickly with a personal message. The next one on my list is Ambre Russe.
Corticchiato's perfumes have been part of my favorites collection for some time. After discovering Cuir Ottoman, Iskander, and Fougère Bengale, Aziyadé followed. Recently, Tabac Tabou entered the stage, and made a smashing impression on me like the worlds of Cuir de Russie, Wild Oud and Fracas are brought together in a new men's or unisex perfume] yet Aziyadé remains my number 1.
It is a different universe, also quite heavy like Tabac Tabou, but with an alluring edge that contrasts with the gravity of the base note; I partly smell Azemour [Orange] but also the lighter touch of Patchouli in the version of Etro di Milano; to me it is like walking on the Damascus souk in 2008 [when all the horrors were not yet reality] and being dragged from dates and figs to citrus and cotton, from sweat to olive oil, from lavender to dark chocolate.
A kaleidoscope of Eastern impressions that are packed together in a strong perfume, recognizable for the connoisseur, but totally out-of-the-box and unique for the outsider, it touched my senses and became part of my identity.
