Veni, Vidi, Vici After having been crowned for a triumphant military conquest, Julius Caesar stood before the Roman senate and declared his victorious phrase Veni, Vidi, Vici. The echoes of those ancient battlefields have long since been silenced, but the expression continues to resonate. «Veni, Vidi, Vici» epitomizes the excellence of success, a merited victory with an inherent sense of boldness, knowledge and achievement. In the modern world, we face challenges every day. And just like in Caesars time, we have to confront those challenges that stand between us and our destiny. We must dare to face the unknown and overcome adversity with quick, decisive action. Now in the more than two millennia since Caesar proclaimed this famous phrase, perfume designer Gérald Ghislain is offering us the chance to relive the power of these words through his intense fragrances. For Gérald, the making of his perfumed art is an exercise of perpetual transformation. In his Veni, Vidi, Vici, he connects the power of the human spirit to powerful natural elements. Veni represents the earth, which in many ways still remains a mystery to us. It is nurturing as much as it is wild, forcing us to keep our senses sharp, all the while pushing our limits. Vidi, the wind, carries us over seas and oceans, allowing us to rise above mountains and to take our gaze and spirit beyond the horizon. Vici, embodies fire, which translates into passion and power. It encourages mankind to create as well as to destroy and our mastery of it requires wisdom as much as well as strength. Veni: Like the early explorers who ventured beyond the borders of the known world, VENI offers an olfactory adventure worthy of the Odyssey. Journeying from a familiar bow of Lavender, the Cardamom must contend with a groundswell of Ambergris and strong gusts of Galbanum before landing on a pristine beach of Cinnamon. It then enters a dense forest of Guaiacwood, only to discover a bed of Carnations that hold subtle scents of Saffron, Vanilla and Patchouli. A journey worthy of the ancient epic heroes
