The popular TV series Empire on Fox, in its third season, about the power struggles of a hip hop dynasty in New York, has now a duo of perfumes inspired by main fictional characters Cookie and Lucious Lyon: Lyon's Truth and Lyon's Legacy...
The brand wanted to offer something to engage the fans during their « offline » time; and fans are swooning over the launch.
Lyon's Truth for Her Eau de Parfum
« You're all about the opulent riches and sophisticated style that Cookie Lyons brings to Empire. And you have the attitude to prove it. Add some swagger to your scent... »
These ideas translate into a floriental composition which is said to be feminine, bold and true. The eau de parfum opens on top notes of juicy blackberry, sparkling cassis and velvet plum followed by violet blossom, Bulgarian rose and vanilla orchid. The base rests on creamy sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean.
Lyon's Legacy for Him Eau de Toilette
« He has swagger. He has style. And now he has a scent to match his opulent lifestyle. »
Lucious' cologne is described as a « triumphant, ambitious & confident ... Eau de Success ». It opens on head notes of bergamot and lemon water, leading to a heart of lavender buds, crisp geranium, and clary sage. The base features warm amber, vanilla suede and tobacco leaf.
Both available in 100 ml bottles for $59.50 each.
