Created for Napoleon and personally presented to the Emperor in 1795, Le Vainqueur is a historic and celebrated fragrance from the house of Rancé. Drawing on the original formula still preserved by the house, this remarkable fragrance has been made available for a modern audience. Le Vainqueur has a fresh opening, an exhilarating aroma of Mediterranean citrus fruits, warmed through with a subtle note of ginger. In the heart, an elegant floral bouquet unfurls itself, rich with the aromas of lavender, jasmine, and geranium that come together to bring an added floral depth to the scent. A rich base of amber, leather, ambergris, iris and musk finishes the composition in suitably elegant style.

Fragrance House
The house of Rancé has a long and distinguished history. Dating back to the early 17th century, the Rancé family produced exquisitely scented accessories beloved by French nobility. The high esteem in which the family was held meant that when Napoleon eventually proclaimed himself emperor, he called for François Rancé to be his personal perfumer. It was during this time that François created his most famous composition in honour of the dictator, ‘Le Vainqueur’, in 1795. Today, the house remains a family owned business that is committed to preserving the distinguished history of its fragrances, and Roullier White is proud to continue the legacy of this illustrious house.
