The irresistible scents of the sea and the reassuring depth of woods and leather exalt the victorious spirit that lies in every man. François Rancé created these notes for Napoleon, the most daring of all victors.
The sentimental journey to an island shaped by the winds, which fiercely blow along the Strait of Bonifacio. Paying homage to the landscapes of Corsica, homeland to Napoleon, these Mediterranean scents melt in a fresh and aromatic bouquet, which appeals to men’s soul. Extracts of bergamot and lemon zest, mixed with a gentle sea breeze, introduce a refined heart of lavender and ginger, whose aromatic verve is enhanced by the precious geranium. In the base a subtle blend of wood and leather, enriched by the entrancing musk, highlights the strong personality of the perfume. Created in collaboration with the Jean-Christophe Hérault.
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.
