A fragrance inspired by the fall of power, because nothing can rule us. An immaculate blend of petals in overdose, clean soapy foam and tree moss, contrasted with patchouli on a milky skin of sandalwood and white woods. The fall of Kings is the fall of all the forces that oppress us and prevent us from moving forward. In order for a King to fall, an infinite number of little kingdoms must collapse: family, time, love, work, toxic ex-lovers, the patriarchy, the obligations to be sad, capital, the obligation to be happy, anguish, sex and everything else that alienates us and prevents us from being truly free. This is about making a perfume like a Loire castle, a perfume that could rise higher than the castle of Bloise, higher than the terrace where the last Valois watched the sun set in its glory. And then disappear, die, as if by magic before the fall. The fall of certainties, but above all, the fall of power.

Eau de Parfum

Soapy and ever so slightly green - wonderful and versatile daytime wearing.

Made in France

Exit the King recapitulates our worries and welcomes a new world in the same aromatic breath: nothing can rule us! Something must fall in for something to rise, and Exit the King is the scent of a magnificent new world, a burst of fresh air that makes us forget the old and overwhelming powers that be … and that were.

It takes a chypre, resolutely old and new at once, to convey this message in scent. Exit the King pleats old and new together as a traditional form holds a thrilling combination of ingredients. Power combines with remarkable freshness in this fragrance - a familiar patchouli, moss, sandalwood, and ambergris base begins to erode upon the force of exciting and new top notes, transforming what is typically heavy and rigid into something glorious lightweight. It is charged through and through with a soap foam accord that consists of aldehydes and musk, in addition to a generous floral heart of delicate rose, pure and suggestive jasmine, and the green waxy spark of lily-of-the-valley. This is seasoned with pink pepper and Timur pepper notes, furthering the atmosphere of this scent. Both of these notes employ a unique ‘Jungle Essence’ extraction process, which relies on a supercritical solvent that bathes natural material to essentially absorb its aroma. This ensures high olfactory fidelity with the natural material, presenting new possibilities unknown to the old guard.

The total perfume is magnificent: it blurs many lines but is clear in each of its movements; it is resolute. Technically, it is precise, functional, and sharp. Its soapiness pairs with a certain herbal dryness, like suds that bubble across the surface of wood and spice notes. It is surprisingly thin and direct for a chypre, but after a while, it is clear that Exit the King hosts a complex and technical medley of ingredients that has engulfed the wearer all along.
