Parfums de Marly
About the Brand
Founder and Creative Director Julien Sprecher’s love of perfumery and history is innate. With Parfums de Marly, he expresses his passion for the olfactory creation and the splendor of the 18th century, through a temporal duality that embodies the spirit of the brand: "A juxtaposition of the present and past as coexisting and unexpected sources of inspiration." A lavish extravagance filtered through a contemporary vision. For Julien Sprecher, classic is always audacious.
While the majority of Louis the XV’s reign was spent at the Château de Versailles, Marly was where he went to have fun. The Château de Marly was a pleasure palace, where his entourage was strictly limited, making room for merriment and extravagant celebrations. The court of the King was so obsessed with fragrance, it was dubbed the “perfumed court”: pouches, fans, gloves, and even the fountains were doused with perfume. The King's passion for horses and the flamboyance of the 18th century inspire Julien Sprechers’ perfumer’s soul.
Parfums de Marly is an authentic perfumery that honors French perfuming savoir-faire without being tied to the old ways of doing things. Audacious compositions that dare to defy the standard. The art de vivre of the Château de Marly is captured in every refined scent.
