Ashoka was launched in 2013. The nose behind this fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.
“Inspired by a legendary ruler, Neela Vermeire Creations’ Ashoka is a tribute to an emperor who was conquered by his own compassion at the moment his victory was assured. He converted to Buddhism and devoted the rest of his life to spreading the Buddha’s teachings, to truth, to justice and to compassion for all living creatures beneath the sun. His own evolution from ruthless conqueror to benevolent emperor is reflected in Ashoka’s journey from the fierce opening to a softly floral heart and the gentle embrace of its richly complex drydown” — press release of the brand.
