“Iron, conquest, pride.” That was the motto of an Iron Age tribe of southern Britain, the Iceni were a proud and fierce people. Boadicea was the queen of this Celtic tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire. Equipped with large oval or sub-rectangular shields and either a sword or spear, their main distinction from the Celtic tribes of the continent is the practice of painting or tattooing their skin, combined with a greater use of slings in battle. Although light cavalry are used, the Iceni and other British tribes are famed for their highly manoeuvrable war-chariots. After harrying the enemy with javelins, warriors dismount and engage in a fashion similar to the Homeric champions. Their culture, craft and wealth were illustrated in the form of fantastic gold torques and other jewellery worn by the nobles. This highly incredible valorous fragrance takes inspiration from this legendary tribe, with middle flowery notes like Jasmin, Neroli, Carnation and a base that brings very dominant notes such as Patchouli, Sandalwood, Myrrh and Musk.
