La bella vita
In hommage of its Corsican heritage, Parfum d'Empire released a series of unusually creative compositions. Each of them seems inspired by the fresh and aromatic nature of the island. In this context I see "Salute !" also as a celebration of the simple joys of life. Fresh nature, sunny weather, good food.

It is a citrus-woody composition - more citrus than woody - with a bright luminous boost of iris. Particularly fascinating in the first minutes, where i get instances of chocolate and raisins. But really during the whole course, the scent is uplifting, bright and very sunny. Uncomplicated, but what a mood-booster!

Joyful concoction
An uplifting perfume. Luminous, joyous, easygoing. A chocolate-like opening brings instant smile. A wine-like quality weaves throughout the entire journey, convivial but never drunk. The composition may be complex but the final effect is one of simplicity and transparency. It continues the evolution of the brand since Le Cri de la Lumière towards a style of luminosity and cheerfulness. Parfum d’Empire has found its own style, and stopped following the footsteps of Serge Lutens (Ambre Russe/Ambre Sultan, Aziyade/Arabie, Cuir Ottoman/Cuir Mauresque, Musc Tonkin/Musc Kublaï Khan, Wazamba/Fille en Aiguille…).

Cheers (New Year)!
Uncommented fragrances No. 143

For me, Parfum d'Empire are among the most exciting brands between mainstream, niche and manufactory. I don't know exactly where they belong, how much turnover they make and whether they should be regarded more as a one-man company or as a larger enterprise. It doesn't matter I think I got attention at that time through ex-user Angelliese, who knew and passed on some of them, and finally also through Luca Turin, who recommended several of them especially, among others "Azemour Les Orangers" (2011), which I now love very much and which is an absolute highlight for all friends of Hesperidia*, not only of the last years, but in general, as well as "Le Cri", so powdery bright that even I find it good.
Now that Marc-Antoine Corticchiato is sending a fragrance called "Salute" into the race shortly before New Year's Eve, it's the perfect occasion for a toast on New Year's Eve. In addition, he has again succeeded so cleverly that I even forgive him the somewhat lukewarm Aquaten "Acqia di Scandola", which was launched shortly before and which is quite good, but not really round.
Salute ! on the other hand, was launched together with another hay-spicy, herbaceous fragrance ("Immortelle Corse"), which both have a lot in common: Tones of herb, hay, dry spice, in total a Mediterranean aura.
While Immortelle Corse focuses on the Immortelle with its earthy, herbaceous, hay-like structure (and very beautifully so), Salute ! goes one step further: here, wedged between the citric opening and the humorlessly conservative woody-mossy base, an idiosyncratic tone is found, described above with vine leaf and wine yeast. Why else would the fragrance be called Salute ! (note the exclamation mark)? I never would have guessed. But there is indeed something alcoholic, sparkling, sharp and tartly spicy with a residual sweetness that follows shortly afterwards (note: wine connoisseurs!), which, spurred on by the powdery musk, picks up speed and gives the fragrance a grandiose texture. Must have been a good vintage!

So it would be very good to wear for New Year's Eve. I will seriously consider this and also an acquisition is not completely excluded. For me one of the best fragrances of 2019.
