Introducing 1667 La Collection Royale, the new unisex luxury fragrance collection made for royalty from the illusive 1667 brand.
Inspired by French King Louis XIV, 1667 La Collection Royale has been crafted with only the finest materials. The fragrance enthusiast believed luxury was a necessity to position his monarchy as the most prestigious, and famously sprayed anyone who visited his palace with his favourite scents.
Nowadays if you went to your friend’s house and they automatically sprayed you with their favourite perfume, you might be annoyed. Back then, however, the guests of Versailles were likely just thrilled they’d made it to the palace. The fountains were fragranced with petals to sweeten the air, and the King is said to have commissioned his perfumer to create a new scent for every day of the week. (He would definitely have loved scentaddict…)
To bring some of that unparalleled luxury into 2021, the 1667 La Collection Royale is made of six Eau De Parfums, each one a powerful blend of rare ingredients fit for any King and Queen, in elegant refillable bottles. Launching exclusively at The Fragrance Shop today, discover your new favourite scent from 1667…
Dark and intense, Smoked Wood leads with Mandarin notes before transcending to a heart of Cypress, Pepper, Thyme, Nutmeg and a rich green accord of Galbanum. The woody fragrance descends into an intoxicating trail of smoked notes Olibanum, Sandalwood, Smoked Woods, Leather and Moss.
Citrus Oud takes you on a delicate journey from a fresh citrusy top – blending notes of sparkling Petitgrain with Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon – to a warm enveloping base. An accord of spices marrying Coriander, Cardamom, Nutmeg and Baies Rose is offset with Neroli and Lavender, whilst the base complements with precious Musk, Vanilla, Cedwarwood, Warm Amber and luxurious Oud.
Both deep and luminous, Midnight Amber is an ode to the mysterious and complex art of fragrance. The rich and sensual scent opens with a luxurious Amber note blended with Warm Resins and Bois de Rose, unfolding to reveal a Geranium and Patchouli heart, softened by sweet base notes of Vanilla and Orange.
Rich Mandarin & Pepper is an Oriental fragrance with a prominent Leather accord. Top notes of Grapefruit, Bergamot, Elemi and Mandarin, tinged with Pink Pepper, give the royal invitation here. The heart reveals a blend of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove and Cardamom with delicate Leather and Tobacco accords, entwined with undertones of sweet Vanilla, Amber and Precious Woods at the base.
Rouge is a bright, fresh and enticing scent, opening with Bergamot, Lime and Tagete. The woody, aromatic fragrance has an irresistible base combining Amber, Ambergris, Cedarwood, Moss, Musk, Patchouli and a Powdery Musk, given a decadant floral twist by heart notes of Fir Balsam, Jasmine, luxurious Oud and Saffron.
The final fragrance of La Collection Royale is the vibrant Honey Tobacco. Opening with vibrant citrus accords of Lemon, Bergamot, Mandarin and Thyme, this woody fragrance settles into a spicy heart with Clove, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Ginger, enhanced by Saffron and Pepper. At its base, Precious Woods incorporating Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Cedar are blended with Tonka, Tobacco and Honey for a truly enriching scent that keeps on surprising you.
All 1667 La Collection Royale bottles are refillable, offering a sustainable solution to fragrance that’s as long-lasting as the scents themselves. The 100ml refillable bottle is cast in top quality heavyweight glass, which comes packaged in a luxurious jewellery box, at £175.00.
