Radiant and alluring. Sugar and spice.
Trajan was a giant amongst men, justly earning his reputation as one of the Five Great emperors. A man of pioneering spirit, great military strength, peace, philanthropy and virtue. His rule saw the greatest expansion of the empire across the Silk Route, creating great wealth, cultural diversity and commerce.
This warm citrus fragrance traverses the Silk Route across Mediterranean citrus groves , through gardens of lavender and sage, cedar woodland with a hint of Eastern sugar and spice.
A burst of blood orange and mandarin announce Trajan’s arrival. This leads to a candied lavender and saffron core, where some salty ambergris and oakmoss gives equilibrium to the sweetness. Trajan is woody and aromatic, whilst being sweet and salty. Each element is pitched perfectly, so that there’s no dominant note, simply a harmony of ingredients. Fans of Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge 540 and Rasasi’s Qasamat Bareeq will appreciate Trajan’s radiance, balance and alluring effect.
