Emilie Design
Emilie's Reveal

When it comes to fragrances, sensitivity varies from person to person, but their preferences tend to be similar.
Few in the world are amenable to every kind of odor.
Fresh, floral, fruity... Such are the scents of Emilie's perfumes, meticulously crafted, exquisitely presented, dazzlingly displayed on the shelves of Fontaine's Quartier Lyonnais.
Dated, decayed, decrepit... Such are the traces erased by her touch, everything made as good as new.
If you've never before heard of a "forensic cleaner," you might at first struggle to imagine what such a profession entails.
But if you're lucky enough to become acquainted with Emilie, feel free to ask her a question or two. She is both an excellent listener and an exemplary respondent, so you'll no doubt receive a satisfactory answer.

Combos and How to Play Emilie


Emilie's Best Team Comps

Emilie's main teams focus on her utility as a SubDPS who excels when the Burning reaction is occurring. This means that strong Pyro DPS are often needed in her teams.


Burning Teams

Main DPS Sub DPS Support Support
Lyney Emilie Bennett Zhongli
Arlecchino Emilie Bennett Zhongli

Emilie can be a great SubDPS for teams that enable Burning to occur. 2 of the best DPS for this are Arlecchino and Lyney. In these teams, Emilie often fills in the role that Xiangling used to fill but with Emilie dealing more damage.


Burn-Melt Teams

Main DPS Sub DPS Support Support
Wriothesley Emilie Thoma Bennett
Ganyu Emilie Xiangling Bennett

Emilie provides enough Dendro application to maintain Burning. This means that a second consistent Pyro applicator such as Xiangling, Thoma or Dehya is needed to maintain enough Pyro to consistently Melt with your Cryo DPS.

Emilie's Ascension Passives and Materials

Unlock Ascension Passive Explanation
With Character Headspace Capture When the Lumidouce Case created by Emilie is on the field, all party members gain 85% Pyro RES against Burning DMG.
1st Ascension Rectification For every 1000 ATK Emilie has, she deals 15% increased DMG towards Burning enemies, max 36%.
4th Ascension Lingering Fragrance Each time it collects 2 Scents, the Level 2 Lumidouce Case will consume Scents and release Cleardew Cologne that deals AoE Dendro DMG equal to 600% of Emilie's ATK to opponents. This DMG is not considered Elemental Skill DMG.

Emilie requires a range of materials to ascend to the 6th ascension. Starting from the second ascension she gains CRIT DMG as she levels, giving a total of 38.4% Bonus CRIT DMG at the final ascension. The total cost to upgrade all ascensions is:

Source Quantity
Mora 412,500 Mora
Boss Material 46x Fragment of a Golden Melody
Ascension Material
Local Specialty 168x Lakelight Lily
Enhancement Material
  • 18x Meshing Gear
  • 30x Mechanical Spur Gear
  • 36x Artificed Dynamic Gear

Emilie's Talents

Listed below is each talent alongside the talents explanation of how they work.

Type Talent Name Skill Explanation
Normal Shadow-Hunting Spear (Custom)

Normal Attack

Performs up to 4 consecutive spear strikes.

Charged Attack

Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to perform an upward slash.

Plunging Attack

Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill Fragrance Extraction

Creates a Lumidouce Case that deals AoE Dendro DMG.

Lumidouce Case:

  • Fires of Puffs of Puredew at nearby opponents at intervals, dealing Dendro DMG.
  • When nearby opponents are affected by Burning, they will give off Scents at intervals. The Lumidouce Case collects nearby Scents, and it will level up after gathering 2 of them, after which it will fire 1 extra Puff of Puredew when firing, while the DMG dealt by the above attack will also be increased.
  • 1 Lumidouce Case created by Emilie herself can exist at any one time. 1 Lumidouce Case created by Emilie herself can exist at any one time. The Case starts at Level 1 and can go up to Level 2.
Elemental Burst Aromatic Explication

Guiding the fragrances collected within the Case, Emilie converts them into pure Dendro energy, creating a Level 3 Lumidouce Case and destroying existing Cases.

While it exists, the Level 3 Lumidouce Case will not gather nearby Scents, but it will continuously cause Scented Dew to descend, attacking opponents within range and dealing Dendro DMG. During this time, 1 drop of Scented Dew will descend every 0.3 seconds, and 1 opponent can become the target every 0.7 seconds.

When the duration ends, a Level 1 Lumidouce Case will be recreated. If a Lumidouce Case that had already collected Scents was destroyed when Aromatic Explication was used, the newly created Lumidouce Case will inherit the previous Scents and Level of the destroyed Case. While Aromatic Explication is active, the Elemental Skill "Fragrance Extraction" will not create a Lumidouce Case.

To upgrade Emilie's talents, it costs:

Source Quantity
Mora 1,652,500 Mora
Special Material 1x Crown of Insight
Boss Material 6x Silken Feather
Domain Material
  • 3x Teachings of Order
  • 21x Guide to Order
  • 38x Philosophies of Order
Enhancement Material
