Parfums de Marly – french perfume craft

By Hannah Werneth

The Marly Story

The splendor of the lifestyle of the Château de Marly revives: a place of festivities and pleasure in the 18th century. Parfums de Marly is considered a refined perfumery that respects French expertise and creates contrasting fragrances through the perfumers’ intuition – atmospheric and harmonious. Parfums de Marly has been one of our first brands and is still among the most popular.

Each creation has a unique recognition value and a fragrance signature all its own. They symbolize special experiences with a fascinating combination of classic and modern. All are bold compositions from a palette of noble contents that dare to go against the grain. True signature fragrances, then, that are very distinctive and express a contemporary lifestyle.

The brand was founded in 2009 by Julien Sprecher, who discovered his love for perfume through his father. He was born near the castle of Marly and the gardens of Versailles and has been very positively influenced by its history, with which he grew up. The brand interprets the 18th century and its peak of French elegance: the reign of perfume. A very luxurious period that is reflected in the fragrances, as well as in the bottles and the brand identity itself.



The royal pleasure palace

In the royal gardens of Versailles at that time there were over ninety thousand flowers and plants. They all served the «perfumed court» of the absolutist king, where even the fountains carried perfumed water. Furthermore, the so-called pleasure palace of Marly was famous for the king’s horse breeding. The Tunisian king gave him eight Arabians, which had roots of magnificent European horses. They were the model for the famous sculptures on the Champs Elysee.

Overall, Parfum de Marly revives in the bottles what was celebrated during this particular era. The elegance, the excess of beauty, the numerous celebrations and the exclusivity of the breeding horses that Louis the 15th loved so much. In the end, some creations were even named after the horses.






Sweet, spicy and sensual. The tangy mandarin unites in Layton with noble woods and strong spices, which are enlivened by a touch of jasmine. Parfums de Marly combines here vanilla and light herbs, which carry the addictive character and radiate a warm and at the same time fresh aura.



This powdery floral fragrance consists of the energetic rose, warm vanilla and bergamot. In addition, there is the vibrancy of fresh, exotic fruits, which gives Delina a certain youthfulness. The combination of lychee and rhubarb interprets a flowery sweetness, which perfectly combines with the white flowers contained.


Pegasus Exclusif

Pegasus Exclusif is a fine harmony of bergamot, pink pepper, cardamom and heliotrope. It also develops a very masculine woody strength, accented by an elegant vanilla note. In addition, there are fragrance notes of lavender and bitter almond, which act like a heightened force and give a very unique temperament.



This perfume is airy-sweet and reminiscent of a summer fruity elixir. It embodies pleasure and lightness in a tangy, gourmand structure that is highlighted by bergamot, berries and orange. The twist in Oriana is definitely the sugary marshmallow accent, but it blends very pleasantly with the purity of the fruit.
