French niche perfume house Parfums de Marly have introduced a new composition for women called Darcy...
The stylistic stamp of the house is that they fuse a passeist, historicist love for Louis XV court - the celebrated Perfumed Court - with Le Bien Aimé's love for horse breeding, paying repeated homage to this equestrian legacy.
Darcy is named after a horse, "one of the earliest recorded stallions also known as the Royal Mare, is a fitting tribute to the ancestor of the thoroughbred,"
The Eau de Parfum was created by perfumer Hamid Merati-Kashani. It has top notes of lemon and orange followed by a floral heart of jasmine and rose, finally resting on a bed of patchouli, woody notes, white musk, and sweet notes.
While it may sound overly specialized a project to focus on beautiful horses for fragrance inspiration, this reminds you of those painters that tirelessly paint and re-paint the same animal. What matters in the end is the passion which drives those choices - and it can't be predicted.
Price is 225€ for 4.2 fl oz.
