Joséphine by Rance Fragrance for Women
François Rancé created this fragrance within the strict guidelines of his pupil Napoleon Bonaparte as a dedication to Joséphine, the love of his life.
Since she was drawn to exotic rose oils only the finest May Rose was used in this joyful spring floral bouquet. François Rancé chose penetrating and lavish combination of fruits and exotic woods to create a fresh harmonious floral scent as elegant, sensuous, joyful and charming as Joséphine herself.
The curvature of the bottle are the living expression of femininity and sensuality and is adorned with the crest of Empress Joséphine as are the matching hand made, triple milled soaps.
Base Notes:Sandalwood, Bourbon Vanilla, Ebony, Amergris, White Musk
A Description from Rance:
"François Rancé dedicated this perfume to the woman Napoleon loved most.
The intensity of Spring flowers, the joyful, sensuous, exotic notes, and the penetrating and lavish combination of fruits and wood create a fresh harmonious flowery fragrance conducive to sensuousness in an atmosphere rich in elegance. François represented Joséphine herself in this perfume: joyful, brilliant, sensuous and charming.
The bottle and box are the living expression of that atmosphere, forever in our hearts and our dreams.
