Parfum d'Empire

Acqua Di Scandola



Green | Salty | Mineral

A mist of saline surrounding magnolia flower, Acqua di Scandola is a specific portrait of the sea, which is pure yet spiced.

Clear seawater becomes the basis of an aromatic
bouillon of algae and juniper, like the lick of marine flavour from an oyster. Magnolia adds not a floral potency, but a citrusy and aqueous aspect that harmonises particularly well with the coastal motif. 

A word from Marc-Antoine Corticchiato…
The sea is in my blood, and Scandola is a magical place where I keep coming back with fishermen friends who know each rock, each corner of it. Whatever the hour or the season, its colors keep changing on land and sea. Those flashes of color inspire me as a perfumer. As a part of my current quest for naturality and clarity, I wanted to express the marine accord without resorting to the cliché of artificial aquatic molecules. I found the key in a gorgeous algae extract, customized specifically to reflect my vision of Scandola’s breathtaking beauty.
