Sous Le Manteau Poudre Impériale EDP 14ml VapoRegular price £39.00 Save £-39.00
Meant to create a desire that someone could not resist, formulas for love potions have been secretly preserved since ancient times, giving rise to centuries-old legends. By the 19th century, these aphrodisiac recipes were meticulously recorded in pharmaceutical books, some of which were rediscovered in 2016 by Sous Le Manteau and used to create a collection of five unisex perfumes. Modernised by perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, these authentic 19th century love potions are made in France, ensuring excellence in every detail. Each perfume comes in a box decorated with a caryatid or an atlas that were both photographed in Paris, the city of love, and each box contains a ceramic medallion, made in Limoges, to be worn as jewellery or placed under the pillow of the one you want to seduce. "Be the wake ... Leave behind the trace of a smile. That which obsesses us weaves its web and our gaze will still be able to dare. Within the strength of our embracing, absence is already a fantasy, the exquisite torture of lovers. At dawn the exhalation lingers, the sweetness of the carnal clutch.” Poudre Impériale Eau de Parfum (imperial powder) is a Woody-Oriental-Ambery scent dressed with bergamot oil, elemi oil, cardamom oil, black pepper oil, pink pepper oil, lily of the valley, jasmine absolute, incense oil, heliotrope, benzoin resin, tonka bean absolute, cedarwood oil, musk, and vanilla.
