The lives of Napoleon and François Rancé founder of the Rancé perfumery, crossed in Paris. Napoleon, the great leader and perfume lover, demanded of François, the most famous perfumer of the time, to attend Francois' ateleier and be his apprentice so that he, Napoleon, could reach the heart of an art which fascinated him.

This was a great honour for François. He - the acknowledged king of perfumery - had left the South of France for Paris. With great pleasure he devoted himself to his extraordinary pupil, the ruler of France.

Napoleon's passion for perfume grew after this experience, and Rancé's admiration and devotion to Napoleon and his family became enormous. These sentiments, which François passed on to his descendants and which were a constant throughout various Rancé generations, gave rise to the perfumes which Rancé dedicated to the heroes and heroines of the Napoleonic era.

Only the word Triumph could describe Napoleon's immense glory. And Triumph was the name of one of the perfumes François dedicated to the Idol of his life. Napoleon loved the fragrances of his native island, Corsica, and François drew inspiration from these: the airy, fresh fragrance of Citrus Fruits blended with the sumptious notes of Florentine Iris and Incense to create the allure of a strong, gentle man. Hints of Black Pepper and Musk lend liveliness and contrast to the base of Oriental Woods: the result is a harmoniously masculine mediterranean fragrance of great charisma, worthy of the Genius it is dedicated to.

A decoration which represents the military virtues of the Victor was etched onto the crystal by a Parisian master glassmaker. It is today as is was 200 years ago.
