Cheers! Cheerful and sparkling perfume with citrus and lees, carried by a light powder note of iris, musk, and wood in the base.
Salute! is a tribute to the vineyards in Corsica and the hospitality of the people. The perfume takes its name from the traditional drink of the island. To capture this sparkling tradition, Marc-Antoine used a chord of vine leaves and lees (sediment in wine) which give the perfume a rose and eau-de-vie facet, an innovative chord that we have never seen before in perfume.
The addition of citrus notes makes the fragrance bubbling and cheerful. The ingredient iris refers to the 'angel's share', the alcohol part that evaporates from a wooden barrel while the drink is maturing. The wood and the musk in the base give fullness and warmth, as in a good wine.
Perfumer Marc-Antoine Corticchiato has used the island of Corsica as inspiration for all the fragrances of Parfum d'Empire. With the L'Heritage Corse collection, he portrays various facets of Corsica in their pure form.
Quote from Marc-Antoine Corticchiato:
"I love the bond with the earth, with the terroir and its energy, expressed by Corsican vineyards. And I've always wanted to explore the connection between wines and fragrances. While composing SALUTE !, I was reminded of my grandfather who, like many farmers at the time, produced his own wine He stocked it in huge demijohns in smoky glass covered with wicker, which he stored in his cellar Hence the earthy notes of the fragrance But I wanted them to be airy, to evoke the angels' share. I also had to clean in an overdose or wine treble extract, a material I love though it's hard to control. I tamed it with sparkling Corsican citrus oils. "
