This September, French perfume house Parfums de Marly will celebrate the latest addition to its family of niche fragrances, Oriana. Available across the Middle East, Oriana is a new, addictive world of indulgence, the story of a heroine with character and a hypnotic sillage.
Delicate and airy like a muslin dress, Oriana surprises with a sparkling fruity and floral gourmet, designed entirely as a variation on texture, a ‘mille-feuille’ of flaky sweetness, softness, sensuality, energy and light, which is anchored with euphoric and seductive notes of orange blossom. True to the brand’s passion for the 18th century perfume court with scent-embellished jewels, fans and fountains, Oriana pays homage to Procopio, the inventor of gelato by reinventing the notes from the famous ‘milk cream’ he created in honour of the prince and future king, Louis XV at the grand castle in Chantilly.
Captivating luxury in its gleaming deep pink attire, Julien Sprecher, Founder and Creative Director of Parfums de Marly drew upon the noblest ingredients in perfumery united with groundbreaking molecules to unveil the radiant and powdery elixir. “As with every Parfums de Marly creation, Oriana continues the tradition to restore the golden age of perfumery, striking a brilliant balance between tradition and innovation. The harmony between the materials and the accords creates this olfactory music which tugs at the back of one’s mind and lingers on the skin,” says Sprecher.
