Scent

“Campagne d’Italie” captures a moment in History: when dreams of glory and conquest took flight beyond the Piedmont and Lombardy country, in 1796. Delicate bergamot and grapefruit rinds, still warm from the sun, blend with woody cedar and oak notes.

The head notes of “Campagne d’Italie” are reminiscent of the perfumes celebrated in 18th-century Italy, such as “Aqua Mirabilis”, designed by Italian nuns and known to have inspired the well-known “Eau de Cologne”, with bergamot, citrus fruit and nutmeg as star ingredients. Napoleon Bonaparte discovered the fragrance during his Italian campaign and became enthralled by it, almost to the point of obsession. Historians documented his use of thirty-odd bottles per month – a habit he kept even in exile on the island of Saint Helena. Rumour has it that he would consume a few drops on a piece of sugar before going on the battlefield.

At its heart, behind the intoxicating fresh citrus fruit notes, the fragrance outlines a fascinating landscape with the woody accords of a trio of cedar, oak and sandalwood. A graceful homage to the sublime hills and plains scattered along the banks of the river Pô, from the Piedmont vineyards to the magnificent Lombardy lakes.

Lastly, “Campagne d’Italie” crescendoes to the grand finale of the fireworks with unapologetic hedonism. The scent celebrates the Italian way of life, its bright sensuality with the bewitching sweetness of vanilla, Tonka bean and patchouli.

The Peoples throng around your beauty,
Their hearts aflame, their minds lit at your fire,
Your perfume carried with them always!
A l’Italie, Poèmes barbares, Leconte de Lisle (1862)

NB
A poetic evocation of bucolic hills from another era, “Campagne d’Italie” was chosen by the mythical Hôtel de Crillon, one of the seven 5-star luxury hotels nested in the heart of Paris, on the Place de la Concorde, to be their signature interior fragrance, using scented candles and alabasters.

The Officine's prowess

The deodorizing power of matches has been attested for centuries, notably when it comes to sanitizing the restroom’s atmosphere quickly and innocuously. Officine Universelle Buly took inspiration from this knowledge and created the Scented Matches.

The match manufacturer himself, who at first was slightly baffled, was won over by the idea. The process required many trials before finding the right dosage of perfume concentrate to obtain what we had in mind, i.e. an ephemeral, scented smoke with a remarkable odoriferous power.

Cut to a good length in tender wood before being coated in a scented solution, Officine Universelle Buly’s matches fill the room with their fragrance in one fell swoop.

Advice for Use & Care

The trick is to let it burn for as long as possible, holding it with the tip of the fingers or putting it down delicately in a small saucer to enjoy its scented smoke until the very end.

Precautions: Always make sure the match is completely put out before throwing it away. Keep the matches out of the reach of children or pets.

CAMPAGNE D’ITALIE: AN INVITATION TO A JOURNEY

Hints of leather, bark, earth, pine needles and summer-roasted leaves. The plains, white with sun and crisscrossed by scout honey bees, make for a blinding wait. In the warm shade of the woods, amid the thick silence of the oaks and cedars, the clatter of horses being harnessed, the impatience of restless hoofs, the glint of rifles before the charge.
