Description

Forty thieves

Forty Thieves by Fort & Manle is a spicy citrus, a slightly sour opening of bergamot, apple peel and pink pepper are the precursors of the composition.

Densely loaded with labdanum, amber and oud at the base, they blend perfectly with the orange blossom heart of orange blossom, papyrus and rose, offering a subtle floral hue. The ethereal incense is woven into and out of the fragrance, making this oriental incredibly addictive. Layer by layer, amber and labdanum are the clear protagonists, fusing all the other notes without allowing one note to dominate another. As the story comes to an end, the soft, earthy sandalwood persists, offering a sweet, comforting warmth.

From dusk to dawn, a vast desert land, caravans of camels through the golden sand. Among the Bedouins they retreated, surrounded by tea, spices and delicacies to eat. A warm breeze carries the smoke of incense, laughter around the shisha as they joke.

At nightfall, they return to their coveted treasure, hidden in a cave, it is a spectacle of pleasure.  “Open Sesame,” enter if you will, into the mystical story of the Forty Thieves.

Perfumer

Fort & Manle - Rasei Fort

Rasei Fort is a self-taught perfumer and his brand Fort & Manle is an independent, artisanal perfume house which is founded and wholly owned by him.

His grandmother distilled roses into oil which was her passion and her profession. Growing up in this particular environment was literally his introduction into the world of perfumery and the reason why rose happens to be constant element in most of his creations.

Obsessive in his approach, Rasei meticulously blends artisanal oils, extracts and the finest Oud in existence. The results speak for itself, truly enhancing the fragrance, coupled with sprinklings of the most effective aroma molecules. Rasei Fort continually references history and varied cultures, including his own rich, Turkish heritage by scouring the world for the finest raw materials and combining them with his inspirations, evoking the pomp and pageantry of the Empires of old. This has resulted in the creation of luxurious compositions which combine the modern world with “Old-World” sensibilities.
