Sofia Coppola’s 2005 award-winning film Marie Antoinette offers vibrant images of pastel hued robes à la française, decadent sweets, romantic flings, and sky-high hairstyles with the cascading curls so commonly associated with the 17th century French royal court. Since my first viewing of the film, I’ve been on the hunt for little ways to incorporate that colorful and luxurious Rococo energy into my lifestyle; whether it’s applying rosy blush to the apples of my cheeks, styling a sweet toile-print, or investing in high-end fragrance brands that make me feel like a queen in my own right.
Luckily for me, the influence of the French royal court on the world of fashion and beauty are unrivaled. Evidence of this cultural reset can be found in the luxurious perfume selection of Parfums de Marly. Its founder and creative director, Julien Sprecher, created the brand as a pure expression of his passion for perfumery and history. Enamored and inspired by the perfumed court of Louis XV (more specifically his royal residence, Chateau de Marly and his love for the Marly Horses), Sprecher has since launched 30+ high-end fragrances.
With each fragrance holding its own gorgeous olfactory signature, it’s no wonder why Parfums de Marly fragrances have been trending for weeks on TikTok. Trust me: they’re so good, even Marie Antoinette would be jealous. Read on to discover which of the brand’s feminine fragrances have me falling head over heels.
