RANCÉ 1795 | Triomphe
This perfume, dedicated to Napoleon’s triumph or Triomphe Francois Rancé, was introduced in 2009 and reformulated in 2015. The nose behind the fragrance is Mr Giovanni Rancé, owner and creative director of Rancé 1795.
Rich, triumphant and extending towards infinity, its adrenaline spices and the style of its amber-scented heart make every goal possible for a man of character. A multi-faceted fragrance: adrenaline and style. A celebration of good chances, Triomphe, like the poem hidden inside its box, is a perfume that shows “the expansion of infinite things”.
The Fragrance’s new soul opens with a dynamic wave of bergamot, bitter orange and green tangerine, warmed by the spicy touch of cardamom. In the heart, an intense mélange of cinnamon, clary sage and the unusual tarragon. At the base, the resinous incense and the Cordova leather add an oriental and woody taste. Vetiver, guaiac wood and patchouli join the sweetness of black amber, while a final, soft touch of elegance is given by benzoin drops. Triomphe features Millesimé notes: like in fine wines and liqueurs, these are the extracts obtained from the best years of production.
Since the 17th Century the Rancé Maison, based in Grasse, has been renowned for a unique mastery in crafting perfumed gloves. The ability to master the techniques of Gantiers-Parfumeurs, soon evolved into the art of distilling and blending essences. From this legacy, in 1795 Francois Rancé established his Parfumeur - Distillateur laboratory.
Appointed as official purveyor to the Imperial French Court and Napoleon's favourite perfumer, François Rancé revolutionized the art of perfumery by creating fragrances of timeless excellence. Subsequent generations of the Rancé family have continued to develop innovative fragrances and gems of perfumery for illustrious figures of their times.
In 1902, thanks to Alexandre Rancé the company moved to Milan, starting a new era for the Maison. The Rancé 1795 legacy is now housed in the Milan historical Headquarters, in a permanent museum that brings together vintage Rancé products, part of the archives, and the Rancé collection of perfumery objets d'art.
Today, the seventh generation is carrying on the Rancé family's traditional craft, inspired by ancient recipes, selected natural ingredients, passion, research and creativity. They produce iconic contemporary fragrances which make Rancé 1795 ever more unique.
