Corsica Furiosa, Corsica in the spotlight by Parfum d’Empire
Corsica Furiosa is a fragrance from the Parfum d’Empire collection. The latter was produced by perfumer Marc-Antoine Corticchiato and was created in 2014. As its name suggests, it pays homage to Corsica, the birthplace of its creator. It then stands out, like the whole range of Parfum d’Empire, by its originality, its aesthetics and its authenticity. In addition, it was rewarded at the 23rd edition of the prestigious FFI Awards, receiving the expert’s prize for the best fragrance from a niche brand.
Corisca Furiosa, a perfume with a Corsican soul
When Corsica Furiosa was born, it was immediately greeted by Laurent Marcangeli, deputy mayor of Ajaccio. The latter described it as being “An enhancement of Corsica and Corsica, a standard-bearer that it is essential to honor. »He continued speaking of Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, its creator: “Corsica must see its future through those who succeed and you are part of it”. Indeed, the latter has its origins from this magnificent island with Mediterranean blood. Also, he wanted to give a nod to this land dear to his heart and wanted to share part of his heritage with the public. This fragrance is an olfactory exploration. In addition, beyond the island it symbolizes, it embodies the amorous and spiritual conquest. It encourages you to look in your inner fort to deliver the best of yourself. With him, Parfum d’Empire reconnects with the original meaning of perfume, of all times and in all cultures. It delivers an almost sacred soul and the power of its raw materials is then pushed to excess. He is strong while being fierce.
Parfum d’Empire plays on greenery
If we had to describe in a few words Corsica Furiosa, it probably looks like it’s a burst of greenery. Indeed, this one is built primarily around the lentiscus, an evergreen shrub, typical of Corsica. Also, the greenery does not leave its top notes until its wake. In addition, this avalanche of green is also provided by galbanum, mint and tomato leaf. The grapefruit, meanwhile, is guessed and lets escape very energizing notes. Likewise, the blackcurrant bud is also part of the game. Then, after about an hour in contact with the skin, Corsica Furiosa calms down. It takes a more balmy direction and woody notes make their entry. A smoky aspect emerges, without being dark and brings a resinous depth to the whole. It is as pleasant and invigorating as a walk in the forest; a ballad from which he brought back the smell of humus, dry herbs, resins and undergrowth. Love at first sight with this perfume is immediate. However, it is not ephemeral and turns into real love over time never to fade away.
An outburst around the lentiscus, a typical Corsican shrub. Wood, moss, earth, hay, honey, resin, leather… Green on all floors and in all tones, its wake carries with it the smells of the scrub. Fiery and fiery Furioso. Said, in music, of a piece that presents an impetuous character …
Because it is never relaxing, this Corsica where Marc-Antoine Corticchiato has his roots. She puts her eyes full, her noses full, her heart full. By dint of fury to live, sometimes it explodes. So we take the bush.
It is from the mastic tree that the creator draws this new homage to his land. A shrub with a green, intense and faceted scent that grows on the sunny slopes of the Corsican maquis, from the middle mountains to the seaside. But Corsica Furiosa is infinitely more than this moving scent which welcomes the traveler to the Island of Beauty… Everything that Corsica conceals of unique, strong, fierce, is concentrated there. Violent oppositions of perfumes, colors, reliefs, passions, secrets …
