Napoleon BonaparteLa "Victoire", the victory at Wagram against the Austrian Empire, made Napoleon Boneparte in 1809 master over all Europe. Once again his genius prevailed over a numerous, well-armed enemy led by expert generals.

Jean Rancé, son of the master perfumer François Rancé, dedicated in 1809 to the Emperor a new perfume, intensely masculine, in which the liveliness of bergamot contrasts with the intensity of laurel and thyme.

L'Aigle (the Eagle) is one of the most original and surprising scents ever made. Blending laurel, with its overtones of bay leaf and eucalyptus, with thyme and birch tar, produces one of the most aromatic and unusual scents ever made.

Brightened with refreshing bergamot, and warmed further with the ambery leather notes of cistus labdanum, Jean Rancé's original recipe has been revisited to include precious Oudh (aloes-wood), patchouli and leather.
