Rance 1795




Napoleon loved the fragrances of his native island, and François Rancé drew inspiration from these. The light perfume of citrus fruit merges with the fragrance of roses and orange blossom, adorned with Grasse jasmine and Florentine iris. Cedar wood and musk, with hints of vanilla, give the fragrance intensity. A decoration which represents the military virtues of the Victor was etched onto the glass by a Parisian master glass maker. It is today as it was 200 years ago. The precious perfume is made entirely of the rarest and most highly-prized natural essences, obtained from the best years, i.e. "millésimé" (vintage) mixed, stirred and left to age according to Rancé tradition.
