Niche fragrances unisex
An olfactory journey towards lost kingdoms. A collection of fragrances inspired by those men and women who shaped the history of mankind and changed its course forever. The world would not be the same without them. The perfumes of the collection Voyage Royal wisely combine together power and nobleness, ferocity and intelligence, acuity and violence, just like the characters they represent.
The target of Voyage Royal transcends gender and age but has a distinctive characteristic: the passion for the noble great families of the past and for those fragrances that embody their values. Men and women, boys and girls who seek luxury, nobility and power, typical of a past era, in the perfumes they wear.
The design of the Voyage Royal bottles recalls the timeless classic and iconic style of the past that has always been synonymous with elegance, luxury and value. The bottle is made of a noble glass which, through warm and elegant colors, envelops the fragrance and gives it preciousness and finesse. The boxes become a communication tool to tell the story of the dynasties and the historical characters graphically, recalling the past eras, from Liberty to Byzantine, and the background pattern refers to the tapestries of the noble houses which dominate the history of Voyage Royal.
THE POPE’S DAUGHTER
I am a Borgia, this has always been before me. They are afraid of me because of my father, the Pope, and my brother. I do love them, but first and foremost I am Lucrezia, I live as I wish. This is the reason why I had to abandon them and leave Rome. To find my own way.
I still remember the day I entered Ferrara as the future Duchess. I felt beautiful, the joyful crowd was praising me. I felt like a new life was beginning, it really was. But I am a Borgia and I will always be.
The Pope’s Daughter opens up with a interweaving of cardamom and black pepper, which confer brightness and mystery to the creation, introducing the characteristic and warm accord of the heart, where amber, labdanum and an intriguing geranium, stand out. On the bottom, an extra creamy sandalwood accord hugs the mélange, mixing up with the majesty of cedar wood and the typical elegance of musk.

THE TWO ROSES
30 years. So long it took to end this war. It all started before I was born but as fate would have it I was the winner. Two families, the Yorks and the Lancasters, the two roses, they struggled for decades for the throne of England. At Bosworth Field some of my enemies changed and came on my side. You don’t need only strenght to win your battles, you also need a strategy. Now the two roses became one, finally.
Contemporary and at the same time classic, this creation reveals elegance and personality. A Floral accord with fresh and Fruity touches discloses a refined and precious bouquet that expresses the character of a timeless composition. The drydown is a mélange of enveloping woods with ambery shades, touched by Musky caresses. An olfactory story that hits straight to the heart.

Some people say I am cruel but if you want to be the biggest you can’t have mercy.

Hastings. Today, nothing else but a small fishermen village. Though, the biggest battle of the current era was fought exactly there. The battle to control England. That day, the Saxon warriors were deployed and their shields formed an almost impassable wall. We beat them off the entire day, only at sunset we breached their ranks. That same day I led my Normans to victory. This is why they call me William the Conqueror, the King of England.
The conqueror is a symphony of pure and exquisite elegance, with joyful notes of pimento berries that contrast the suppleness of velvety rose petals. Safraleine plays notes with a mix of silky saffron and one of the most precious tobaccos, with slightly leathery and herbaceous notes. The heart is magical, majestic and opulent with an enchanting sensual oud accord and a stylish patchouli mixing up with a sublime and addictive caramel praline accord. The delicious warmth of an emotional vanilla, wrapped by ambery musky notes embellishes this unique tailored interpretation.
Olfactive family: oriental, gourmand
Main raw materials: Pimento berry oil, Saffron, Patchouli, Vanilla Orchid
