Genghis Khan was probably one of the greatest and most feared conquerors in history. He was the founder of the Mongol Empire and conquered large parts of Central Asia and northern China. He was elevated to Khagan and was thus ruler over all Mongol tribes and peoples. He was a warrior through and through and ruthlessly took whatever pleased him. His warriors and armies were feared and his name was spoken with awe, fear and admiration. He was an emperor to be reckoned with. Royal Crown has memorialized this era with Khan. Khan takes you into his magnificently decorated tent, on his raids and into his bedchamber. There where certainly also conquests took place!
If Khan were a musical instrument, it would be a deep dark drum. Resembling a serene,warm heartbeat and timbre. If Khan were metal,then iridescent gold and dull bronze. Its elements would be fire and earth. And if Khan were color, it would be oxblood red, dark brown and deepest, lacquered black. Khan is like a heavy armor or armor. Hard to penetrate and see through. You feel like you can never get to his core and innermost.Deepest,mysterious and tantalizingly sweet darkness surrounds him like the Mongolian tundra at night. It opens its conquest with notes of bitter saffron and spicy-sour cardamom. A subtle sweetness creeps in like a host. Dried fruits not recognizable in detail protect the flanks and gradually touch into the gourmand. Bows of bitter-sweet guaiac wood are strung and fitted with arrows of creamy, milky-warm sandalwood. Flags are waved, spreading the scent of earthy, warm and shocking patchouli around the battlefield. Whips of the finest, braided calfskin are brandished and creamy-soft sabres and lances of the finest, golden Borneo oud are drawn. The warm and protective skins are smeared with precious resins and over the won battle hovers the victory of mystical smoke and war song.
Surrender and devotion are the result!
Serge Lutens has also already taken on the theme of the Mongols with Muscs Koublaï Khän years ago. I love this variation, by the way, very much! But where Muscs Koublaï Khän comes up with animalic musk,Khan is quite different. Khan is a gourmand oriental. It is powerful,dense and very sumptuously loaded and studded. What the gorgeous bottle promises is also mercilessly delivered. Khan called to mind many very familiar perfumes as it conquered my senses. Khan has the timbre and aura of a Xerjoff amber star. The spicy-smoky sweetness of an Interlude by Amouage. And the animalic, resinous eroticism of all three Parfum de la Nuit by Roja Dove. It contains the most precious,milky sandalwood,soft creamy and smooth Borneo oud and earthy warm almost shockolad patchouli. But it also harbors other notes and accords under its heavy armor that are not listed at all it seems to me. Like delicate incense and soft, supple leather as well as waxy resins of benzoin, cistus and tolu balsam. And even traces of cocoa and possibly rum. Khan is a very seductive,sensual,warm and almost hypnotic perfume. Its erotic aura is very hard to escape. But maybe you don't want to or can't? The price you have to pay is high for Khan. But the quality speaks for itself. You just have to say it! I myself have fought very, very long with me and the perfume. But in the end I lost the fight and surrendered. You should just never mess with a Khagan.
You can only lose,....at all levels and positions!
Man's eye sees far,man's understanding sees further!
