Le Vainqueur



Created for Napoleon and personally presented to the Emperor in 1795, Le Vainqueur is a historic and celebrated fragrance from the house of Rancé. Drawing on the original formula still preserved by the house, this remarkable fragrance has been made available for a modern audience. Le Vainqueur has a fresh opening, an exhilarating aroma of Mediterranean citrus fruits, warmed through with a subtle note of ginger. In the heart, an elegant floral bouquet unfurls itself, rich with the aromas of lavender, jasmine, and geranium that come together to bring an added floral depth to the scent. A rich base of amber, leather, ambergris, iris and musk finishes the composition in suitably elegant style.
