In 2003, master perfumer Alexander McQueen presented to the world his idea of luxury, opulence, and grandeur. Kingdom, made by Jacques Cavallier, was presented in a bottle which could be defined as a human heart, or an alien form. The spicy and seductive notes had captured the imagination of perfume lovers worldwide. However, it was discontinued, breaking the hearts of millions of souls worldwide.
The house of Alexander McQueen was relaunched in 2016, with the classic McQueen Parfum, instilling in every perfume lover once again the nostalgia of Kingdom.
