One of the most opulent and delicious fragrances I have ever tried, The Merchant Of Venice Imperial Emerald Eau de Parfum is dazzling from the box to the bottle – and of course, the fragrance itself is too. Creamy vanilla, warm amber and sensuous musk with a hint of peppery spice stand out proudly in Imperial Emerald, resulting in a delicious combination that I want to wear every single day.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Imperial Emerald takes warm and comforting aromas and adds a joyful twist of bright citrus and deep musk to create an intoxicating and sophisticated fragrance that smells good enough to eat. The striking top notes include the likes of pink pepper and bergamot, which are warmed by an accompanying floral bouquet of iris and orange flower that invites you into the heart of the fragrance. The cacophony of floral notes in the heart are enhanced by the vanilla and white musk-heavy base, resulting in a modern and seductive scent that still maintains an enchanting sweetness. The patchouli base adds a slight earthy feel that compliments the rich warm vanilla and seductive musk tones, which are nuanced by a delicate touch of apple blossom.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

The beauty and wild nature of the peacock is reflected in the exotic floral heart of Imperial Emerald as, like a peacock, it proudly fans out, blossoming into an expectedly warm and musky fragrance that is timeless and elegant.
