Parfum de Marly – Layton
Parfums de Marly has always dedicated its fragrances to the noble and famed horses of history – war horses, racehorses, and so on – but Layton breaks with this tradition. Instead, Layton pays homage to the extravagance and sophistication of the court at Versailles. One drop of this magnificent elixir brings you into a lost world of dancing, feting, scandal, rumors, courtly love, and opulence.
The topnotes announce themselves with a sharp curl of bergamot flicking its whip at the other aromatics, lavender and geranium. The effect is at once scintillating and beguiling – it puts you on notice. Eyes wide open now, you will begin to sense an opulent, thick amber growing in the heavy, sweet with vanilla and spicy with pink pepper. It is rich but also feather-light, just as you imagine those famous cakes and pastel-colored macarons that Marie-Anoinette used to nibble on. A base of woods, vanilla, caramel, and coffee rounds out this impression of a greedy gourmand gorging on fine gateaux at the court of Versailles.
