What Sephora says about MARCHESA PARFUM D’EXTASE All Over Body Mist:

Freesia, young violet leaves, night blooming jasmine, ambrox, and musks complete the sublime composition of this intoxicating elixir.

The fragrance’s elegantly designed bottle evokes the look and feel of an exotic raw crystal, a powerful gemstone known for its positive energy and abundant healing qualities. Each bottle features individually set crystals that exude confident and alluring femininity signature to Marchesa.

Discover the designers’ enchanting vision and dress your senses in ecstasy.

Notes:
Iris Flower, Freesia, Black Current, Young Violet Leaves, Lotus Flower, Night Blooming Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose Water, Orange Blossom, Iris Root, Ambrox, Captive Musks.
Style:
Feminine. Empowered. Intoxicating.

Similar to the EDP, this fragrance takes me back to my childhood. Not in the way that is child-ish, but more in the delicate carefree type of way. Okay, to be real baby dolls in the 80’s smelled this way, but it makes me reminisce which makes me relaxed and happy. Meaning, the scent does the job I need it to. Relaxed and happy = confidence, and confidence = sexy. Done. The scent is completely subtle, but lingering…. enchanting and inviting.

While the packaging isn’t as glitzy or glam this is an excellent substitute for those that find the Eau de Parfum too strong. You absolutely must check it out!

MARCHESA PARFUM D’EXTASE All Over Body Mist retails for $45.00 and can be purchased at Sephora.

Marchesa PARFUM D’EXTASE Eau de Parfum Spray Photos & Review

On the final day of August I posted a press release about Marchesa launching their first fragrance exclusively at Sephora. My interest was piqued by the bottle alone. It’s simple and elegant. I’m easily influenced by packaging, so I made a trip to the mall to sniff.

This trip was not wasted. I’ll put it this way. I loved it so much I bought the rollerball as well to keep in my purse… just in case I forget to put it on before I leave the house.

Marchesa Parfum d’Extase is definitely what I would consider a floral fragrance. Don’t be afraid! It’s not the scary, headache inducing type of floral. It’s feminine, delicate, and classic. I’m not really down with describing top notes or whatever, so be sure to reference the Sephora website.

I literally can’t stop sniffing my arm. And, I don’t know if I should be embarrassed about this or not, but I told the associate that was ringing me up that it reminded me of the way baby dolls used to smell in the 80’s! All floral, and powdery. She looked at me like I was a little insane, but then maybe she was younger than me and didn’t represent the awesome-ness that is the 80’s.

I’d also like to add, that the stock was really low on this and it hasn’t been out very long (from what I can tell it’s not limited edition). So, I’m not alone here in the love. AND, the woman in front of me was buying it was well. No pressure.

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.

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.
