FORT & MANLÉ Forty Thieves 50ml
From dusk ‘til dawn, a vast desert land,
Camel caravans through the golden sand.
Among the Bedouins they would retreat,
Surrounded by tea, spices and delicacies to eat.
A warm breeze carries the incense smoke,
Laughter around the shisha as they joke.
At nightfall, they return to their coveted treasure,
Hidden in a cave, it’s a sight of pleasure.
“Open Sesame”, enter if you please,
To the mystical tale of the Forty Thieves.
A zesty citrus, slightly tart opening of Bergamot, Apple Skin and Pink Pepper are the forerunners of the composition
Densely loaded with Labdanum, Amber and Oud in the base they coalesce seamlessly together with the heart of Orange Bloosom, Papyrus and Rose, which offer a subtle floral nuance. The ethereal Incense weaves in and out of the fragrance, making this oriental incredibly addictive. From cover to cover the Amber and Labdanum are the clear protagonists, melding all the other notes together without allowing a single note to dominate another. As the story comes to an end, the smooth earthy Sandalwood lingers, offering a sweet comforting warmth.
Perfumer Type: Oriental
Perfumer: Rasei Fort
Fort & Manle is a Maison de Parfum whose philosophy is to continually create individualistic, eclectic and often eccentric handcrafted, luxury perfume.
Fort & Manle is an independent, artisanal perfume house which is founded and wholly owned by the perfumer himself, Rasei Fort.
In an attempt to strive for scent perfection, using predominantly the most refined and exquisite naturals, botanicals and absolutes, Rasei aims to transport the user, whisking them away on a sumptuous, olfactive journey to the most exotic locales on the planet, to be truly enveloped by naturally authentic and vivid scent.
Not being deterred by the exorbitant costs of the finest natural raw materials, at Fort & Manle, we adhere to using the most refined and precious natural extracts rather than substituting them with inexpensive and artificial, synthetic molecules, which have become so prevalent within the industry.
Obsessive in his approach, Rasei meticulously blends artisanal oils, extracts and the finest Oudh in existence. The results speak for itself, truly enhancing the fragrance, coupled with sprinklings of the most effective aroma molecules.
As a self-taught perfumer, Rasei Fort continually references history and varied cultures, including his own rich, Turkish heritage by scouring the world for the finest raw materials and combining them with his inspirations, evoking the pomp and pageantry of the Empires of old.
This has resulted in the creation of luxurious compositions which combine the modern with 'Old-World' sensibilities.
Please note: Due to the nature of the natural raw materials used in our fragrances, the perfumes may vary slightly between batches.
