Parfums de Marly

The brand Parfums de Marly draws its inspiration from the century that celebrated the height of French elegance: the 18th century, the reign of perfume. This stately and luxurious period is reflected in all the fragrances, the bottles and the brand philosophy.

The Philosophy

The brand was founded in 2009 by Julien Sprecher, whose love for perfume was passed down from his father. Parfums de Marly, a high-end perfumery brand, conjures up a dreamlike state with its "signature" fragrances, which are short, striking, direct. He was also inevitably influenced by the history of the Palace and Gardens of Versailles, near which he was born and raised.  The creative Parfums De Marly express a refined and contemporary lifestyle.

The inspiration

It is necessary to consider that at that time in Versailles there were more than ninety thousand flowers and plants in the royal gardens. They all served the glory of the "perfumed court". None could hold a candle to the French perfumers, at the center of which was an absolutist king who had his premises deodorized every day with different creations. Even the fountains in the garden carried perfumed water. In the pleasure palace of Marly, the king decided, the welfare of the purest horses should be taken care of. The king's horse breeding was so famous that the Tunisian king gave him eight Arabians. These were crossed with magnificent, large and strong European horses. They were the model for the famous sculptures on the Champs Elysee.

Finest ingredients

Parfum de Marly revives in bottles what was celebrated during this particular era. The elegance, the excess of beauty, the lavish feasts and the exclusivity of the breeding horses that Louis the 15th loved so much.


Another peculiarity of Parfum de Marly is that some creations are not only inspired by the horse breeding of Louis the 15th. They have even been named after the horses.
