"I've always wanted to explore the connection between wines and fragrances."
Marc-Antoine Corticchiato grew up between his parents’ citrus groves in Morocco where he was born and the maquis of Corsica, where his family hails from. After receiving a Ph.D. in chemistry, he completed his training at the renowned École Internationale de Parfumerie de Versailles (ISIPCA) and teaches there today. Parfum d’Empire, founded in 2003, has given him the opportunity of truly expressing his fearless, physical, baroque style. His in-depth knowledge of natural raw materials allows him to unleash their full power.
