The future and final French empress, Eugenie de Montijo, was born in Granada, the jewel of Andalusia. A sparkling beauty, her seductive, temperamental nature and delightful elegance captivated Napoleon III. This beautiful lady’s influence set the tone for everything from the best way to live day-to-day life to the merits of artistic endeavors in her time. This luminous fragrance, a sensual amber buoyed by powdery white flowers and a lively dose of patchouli, remind us of this beloved Empress, and her unforgettable legacy. Bergamot and tangerine are bright, tenacious top notes that speak to Eugenie’s untameable spirit.
A voluptuous bouquet of white flowers affords this fragrance a deep, expansive bosom, while violet edits this arrangement with piquant bursts of insouciant, flirtatious energy. Cinnamon and ginger belie the spiritual warmth of the Empress, and her eagerness to discuss and argue. This intellectual curiosity is further illustrated by the aggressive, dynamic verdancy of patchouli. Amber immortalizes the soulful depth of this Empress, and along with incense we experience a sense of her regal, stately carriage. Blond woods, white musk and vanilla are ephemeral qualities, that invisibly illustrate the subtle, deeply personal graces of this famous character.
Strong yet delicate, 1826 is a sophisticated, soft, confident scent that perfectly communicates the rare character of Empress Eugenie. trail.
