My Amber Number 16
Parfum d'Empire - Ambre Russe
MI6 - London
Curiosity is a delicate task when it comes to questioning the internal workings of an Empire. We have not yet had a case to solve politically. The specifications are encrypted in such a way that you would need an Enigma machine, as usual in the secret service, or you would have to install the decryption module, Switzerland Chropty or similar yourself, as usual, and have direct access to the most secretive secrets via German-American channels. Was the Rubicon crossed here?
We're being set up to track down Ambre Russe. The name alone makes us skeptical. We read Russian, but French. Which power has the trump'f here?
Clearly we are to be deceived with champagne and vodka, but the thought of simple plum, slivovitz from the Balkans, comes to mind. We do not discover champagne. Only schnapps.
Contemporary fake ?
With adhesive plasters we are stuck for a long time in strong animalism, pungent cumin and coriander and wait. Waiting up to two hours to get on with the investigation. We are presented with brown mists of serenity.
But finally dawns up: a friendly laughing brown, like from nutshells. The adhesive plaster is removed and we discover a strong tobacco scent. American Virginia Shag, finely cut and sweetened. And honey and leather
We are now quite close to the solution of our case and allow ourselves a break in Madame Lablanche's antechamber, on elegant leather cushions. Polished suede is accompanied by creamy, soft ambergris and subtle musk from the Frankfurt bull. A slightly flowery sweetness of caramel and vanilla gives us the taste of the crispy bread rolls, delicately underlaid with political incense. The background noise is not the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. It is a fine room fragrance of delicate sweetness, which we still hold in our hands after hours. As the sum of the secrets of Parfum d!Empire.
Real champagne, with the sign of the Gallic Rooster and vodka from the Russian Bear is now a pleasure for us.
À la Vôtre.
