Dark resinous shimmering symphony
The red sun stands low in the last light, the flowers landed in the docks shimmer only in obscure violet, the gnarled woods of the ship's planks sweat out the last heat of the day, the dark brown cracks in the patina of the black leather stacked at the edge of the quays are highlighted, shimmering in the golden brown resin drops, which migrate slowly over it and finally seep into the warm earth between the landing bridges.
Forgive me for the pompous poetry, but "Imperial" is a dark symphonic wall and yet tame, multi-faceted and reserved, a modern painting of British imperialism that has long since overpainted its details and subordinates even the oriental woods and flowers imported via the ports of the Levant to a powerful overall picture A flowery top note can only be perceived briefly and very fleetingly, here fresh spicy notes, probably coming from birch and freesia, mix with the bluish-violet nuances of rose geranium and lavender, which for me are always bluish-violet nuances, even in the later all-determining wall of mild oud, dark leather, golden yellow labdanum resin, fine-grained spicy sandalwood and a rose, which is always dimmed underneath and which emerges again and again. Patchouli is perceptible to me as a grounding antithesis that provides the fragrance with a light sepia filter. This "heart base" then takes over after a relatively short time, is closer to the body than arm-length, is never loud but always present.
"Imperial" is not a Rose-Oud fragrance in the true sense, but they subordinate themselves too much to the overall picture. I would rather describe it as a slightly angular, amber-coloured, resinous leather scent with a dark and soft Rose-Oud theme, which slowly fades away after about eight to ten hours, but never loses its character. One for spring, autumn, and winter, definitely more masculine, self-confident, experienced in life, but also artistic and dandy. One who, despite or because of his unswerving lack of development, has what it takes to become a signature fragrance.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?
The first time I tried this, I thought it was magnificent. The second time it seemed too "chemical" or synthetic and induced a headache. What was I thinking? I decided to give it a third chance because I know that fragrances can smell different depending on our mood. I liked it again...

There's only one other compelling perfume that can give me a headache, at times, smell like a chemical mess and at other times be completely irresistible: Xerjoff's Alexandria II! That's when I realized these two scents are VERY similar because they share so many notes throughout their composition: Top Notes - lavender, rosewood, Heart Notes - rose, Base Notes - oud, sandalwood.

I love/hate both of these, depending on who shows up: Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde?

I was not sure about before buying but then this perfume grew on my like anything.
At initial sniff i was like yes it is good i mean ok perfume but with the passage of time this perfume changed my mind.Now when ever i have to head for a meeting,I accompany Boadicea Imperial.
The richness in juice makes you feel so confident.
The pathcouli note in this very beatifully added.

Has many facets: woody, oudy, flowery, fruity-sweet and even somewhat fresh (due to angelica, birch).
