Transcend into the endlessly glamorous world of MARCHESA where intricate dreams are spun into breathtaking opulence. From every ornate drape to each exquisitely executed detail, Marchesa’s signature touch is as effortless as it is seductive. With an air of mystery and desire Marchesa masterfully creates their premiere elixir, a truly enchanting 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.
“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 .”
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. Marchesa’s new fragrance clearly defines their distinct artist vision and transports you into an ethereal world.
With as much discipline, precision and care given to each piece they create, the co-founders of Marchesa collaborated with SEPHORA to develop the latest sculptural representation of the brand. 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.
“At Sephora, we are continually searching for the most innovative and luxurious product offerings to transform the beauty landscape,” says Michael McGeever, SVP of SEPHORA Strategic Partnerships. “Along those same lines, MARCHESA has redefined the world of red carpet glamour, inspiring celebrities, the fashion world, women everywhere and ultimately, us. The decadence and glamour that MARCHESA evokes on the red carpet and on the runway instantly comes to life in their premiere fragrance and we couldn’t be more pleased to present it exclusively at Sephora.”
