Laskarina is a force to be reckoned with. Not only was she a strong wife and mother, she was a a naval commander, led the Greek War of Independence, and was the first woman admiral of the Imperial Russian Navy. What a woman!

Truly one of the earliest feminists, she needs a fragrance as strong-willed as her. Perfumer, Amelie Bourgeois, was tasked with creating a scent that reflected her paradoxical demeanor - an iron fist in a velvet glove - both soft and delicate as well as daring and dynamic. She used a juxtaposition of sweet pear sorbet against fiery frankincense and spicy pepper to accomplish this contrast.
More than a perfume, Laskarina is a tribute to the great heroines of history
