Niche or selective colognes are created for those who want to use high-quality and original products that emphasize a special status. Parfums de Marly perfume samples definitely belong to this category. The young brand immediately attracted attention with truly royal fragrances that will not leave anyone indifferent.
The King of France, Louis XV, demanded that a new fragrance hovered in his chambers every day, and perfume compositions were added to the waters of the palace fountains. Known for its aromatic excesses, the royal palace has been called La cour parfumée – the fragrant palace. The best fragrances of all time were invented in this era thanks to the royal perfumer Jean Farjon.
One of the favorite places of Louis XV at his palace was the Château de Marly – the castle of Marly, built by the great-grandfather of the king Louis XIV. The king decided to contribute to the development of the castle, making it one of the most famous cavalry of the XVIII century, where royal horse races were often held with the participation of the strongest and most beautiful parades in the world.
Louis XV, as a passionate fan of horses, wanted to improve local breeds and engaged in breeding. The King of Tunisia offered him 8 Arabian horses, among which were famous stallions, who later became the ancestors of thoroughbred riding. In 1743, the famous sculptor Guillaume Coustou was commissioned to create a masterpiece that decorated the entrance of the castle.
Today, the Parfums de Marly brand revives the memory of those luxurious and carefree times, about the wealth, brilliance and beauty of court ladies and gentlemen, about the wild nature of beautiful aristocratic animals.
Initially, the company produced only perfume for men. Solid men’s fragrances radiate nobility, dignity, calm self-confidence, thoroughness and impeccable taste. Massive rectangular bottles with opal engraving, the same as on the heavy gilded lid, give the impression of a truly status product. Then colognes for women appeared in the collection, as well as unisex options. In addition, over time, the aroma range was replenished with gentle creams for the body and hands with the brand’s signature fragrances. And also fans of Parfums de Marly can buy hair sprays and perfumed candles.
Perfumes are available in laconic elegant packages. The cardboard box is decorated with a logo with horses, inside there is a glass bottle with a removable lid. Women’s fragrances have an additional decoration in the form of a lace with tassels. And also ladies’ bottles have more elegant outlines. The rest of the packages differ only in color, such a restrained design is designed to emphasize nobility and special status.
For this, it is worth thanking famous perfumers who have collaborated with Parfums de Marly over the years. Among them are Jacques Flori, Nathalie Lorson, Olivier Cresp and other creators who have become famous in the world of exquisite colognes. Among the fans of Parfums de Marly, the British Prince William and other famous political figures were noted.
Today, the perfume house Parfums de Marly revives the spirit of luxurious receptions and celebrations once held at the castle of Marly for the royal family, entourage and foreign dignitaries. In accordance with the original concept, Parfums de Marly supports the perfume traditions of the XVIII century, when exquisite compositions were created specifically by order of Louis XV. Order samples decanted from the original authentic perfume bottle and radiate royal aristocracy and nobility, luxury and impeccable taste.
