Created for Napoleon Bonaparte after his coronation as King of Italy in 1805.
Fresh scents of lavender and orange flowers together with aromatic overtones of Anise, blend with Amber and Reunion Cinnamon. Leather exalts the masculine character while Cedar and Musk give intensity to this manly fragrance. Elegant metallic-wood tone, handmade box with gold overlay is beautiful.
With his coronation as King of Italy on May 26th, 1805 in Milan, thus taking on the dual title of EMPEROR and KING, NAPOLEON reached the peak of his glory. Only Charlemagne, one thousand years before him, had succeeded in bringing the whole of Europe under his rule.
This was the highest consecration of military and political genius, which led to the fulfilment of the ideals of Liberty and Reform of the French Revolution. The whole of Europe acclaimed the HERO, and François Rancé, his master perfumer and devoted admirer, created for him a fragrance which expressed his virile and fiery nature.
The fresh scents of lavender and orange flower, together with the green, aromatic overtones of anise, blend with amber and Reunion cinnamon to create a symphony of intense accords. Leather exalts the masculine character, while cedar and musk give intensity and persistence to the fragrance.
