Le Vainqueur


Pin It Fancy

Release Date:  1805/2005
Perfumer:  Jean-Christophe Hérault
Description:  The Victor: Napoleon. François Rancé dedicated this perfume to him drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean atmospheres which were so dear to Napoleon and to François himself.  The bright thrilling freshness of Mediterranean citrus fruits is enriched with the sprightly colourful tones of other fruits and elegant sensuousness of jasmine. The aromatic verve of lavender and geranium emphasize its determined, virile and powerful character. Leather, woods and iris create an original combination which becomes richer with the enswathing hints of musk. The bottle is an obelisk, which embodies the concept of Victory itself. This enormous monolith has been dedicated only to the greatest historical personalities over the millennia. The obelisk bottle is capped with the crown bearing the imperial eagle that is placed on the heads of victors.
