Parfums de Marly - Greenley
"These pavilions, separated from each other and half submerged in the forest, seem to be the dwellings of various subordinate geniuses whose master inhabits the one in the middle. This gives the whole an air of enchantment which I liked."
(Letter from Diderot to Sophie Volland, May 10, 1759)
"We hunt in the most beautiful place in the world: the park here is a veritable garden ... All the hedges bloom and are fragrant; nightingales and other birds sing so beautifully that one is completely comforted in this place."
(Liselotte of the Palatinate to Sophie of Hanover, 6 July 1702)
The enchanting place described in these letters is none other than the Château de Marly. The originality of this pleasure palace commissioned by Louis XIV lies in its fragmented architecture, perfectly integrated into the landscape. In Marly, everything is fullness, luxuriance, permeability.
The magic of this place has now given rise to the latest fragrance from Parfums de Marly.
A fresh, green and fruity splash and a vibrant tribute to the power of the earth. A double-sided aesthetic of nobility and nature, classicism and avant-garde, transparency and depth.
Greenley turns the traditional fragrance pyramid on its head with a vertical, high dose of cashmere wood in the top, heart and base notes.
Each note, each accord is enhanced by the natural character of its raw materials. A joyful whirlwind of fruits, citrus, bark and tree sap.
The surprising note of a crisp, tangy green apple. A burst of bold freshness. Sicilian bergamot, mandarin and violet combine in a round dance of scents. A sensual, papery contrast of cedarwood, oakmoss, amber and musk.
Like its bottle, Greenley is a source of pure energy.
A touch of spring - to wear during the day, to give as a gift or to share.
