FORT & MANLÉ Suleyman Le Magnifique 50ml
The Ottoman dynasty is revived in the form of a magnificent monarch...
Suleyman the magnificent reigned as Sultan for 46 years during the "Golden Age" of the Ottoman empire when the kingdom was at the height of grandeur, enlightenment and prosperity.
He was revered as one of the most influential Sultans and was dubbed "Kanuni" or lawmaker. However, it was his controversial all-consuming love affair to his beloved consort Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana) that distinguishes Suleyman from the other Sultans.
A lawmaker, yet defying tradition. An imposing military commander, yet a romantic poet. These conflicting attributes are embodied in this fragrance using the animalic scent of agarwood contrasted with the sweetness of rose, musk and amber. A contradiction, yet harmoniously combined to create a tribute to one of the greatest Sultans who ever lived.
An amalgamation of florals, incense, spice and resin. Pungently irresistible; it is reminiscent of the opulence of an illustrious Empire.
Galbanum of Turkey blends harmoniously with Amber, Musk and Benzoin. It is further infused with Patchouli and Vetiver. An aromatic oriental fragrance, not overtly sweet as Oud Mustafa No.6 strikes cords of leather, iris and marmalade. Juxtaposed with the creaminess of West Indian Sandalwood, one of Suleyman's fragrances of choice.
Rose and Tuberose give the fragrance a bold, well rounded floral disposition. Contrasted with Vanilla and Ambergris, which add an animalistic and resinous element throughout the longevity of the fragrance. Cinnamon, a usual top player, combined with Red Apple lusciously coalesce before dissipating into the luxurious base.
Perfume Type: Oriental Chypre
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.
