Sephora Exclusively Launches Marchesa Parfum D’extase Fragrance

Marchesa is known for endlessly glamorous, effortless and seductive fashion, perfect elements for an enchanting parfum. With an air of mystery and desire Marchesa masterfully creates their premiere elixir, Parfum D’extase, a truly beguiling scent available exclusively at Sephora. One spray will take you to a world of fantasy and imagination that is unforgettable, enticing and uniquely their own. With the launch of Marchesa’s Parfum D’extase, we are given a new and enticing way to experience the luxury of Marchesa.

Marchesa parfum d’extase opens with light florals, giving way to a combination of fresh and woody notes that create the scent’s complexity and beauty. Iris is the secret to the fragrance’s richness, capturing the delicate essence of its flower petals and the dark sensuality of its precious roots. Complementing the timeless elegance of the Iris flower are the beautifully fresh elements of Freesia and Young Violet Leaves to help lead the fragrance into the heart. Comprised of Night Blooming Jasmine, the heart weightlessly transcends the senses into the sensuous background. Here the Iris Root blends together with Ambrox and Musks, the finishing touch to the sublime composition of this intoxicating and unforgettable elixir.

“Like with our dress designs, we wanted our scent to feel sensual and feminine yet still embrace and celebrate the wearers unique style and sensibility” said Georgina Chapman, designer and co-founder of Marchesa. “It is the essence of our muse transformed into a fragrance that distinctly captures her in her most beautiful and purest form.”

Capturing the ecstasy of a perfect moment, the fragrances’ elegantly designed bottle was crafted by Malin Ericson, Creative Director at Vanessa Stevens + Company to evoke the same look and feel of exotic raw quartz crystal, a powerful gemstone known for its positive energy and abundant healing qualities. Each bottles shape uniquely emulates the natural facets and distinct contours of the raw quartz and features individually set crystal accents that exude the confident and alluring femininity signature to the Marchesa design. The parfum comes in three sizes:

50 ml Eau de Parfum Spray – $85.00
30 ml Eau de Parfum Spray – $60.00
Eau de Parfum Rollerball – $25.00

The Marchesa Parfum D’extase is available exclusively on Sephora.com and launched in Sephora stores this month.
