In the Perfumed Court of King Louis XV, extravagance reigned supreme and sophistication was everything. King Louis loved riding horses, admiring them, and breeding them. It elevated his vast estate to an esteemed status. The Château de Marly became synonymous with the world's most beautiful and well-bred horses, lavish statuary and artwork was commissioned to fit the theme. This included Guillaume Coustou's, the Marly Horses, a masterpiece that is now permanently displayed along the Champs d'Elysees in Paris. It is in this spirit that Parfums de Marly seeks to rekindle the splendour of the 18th century, when the finest perfumes were created for King Louis XV and a tribute to the prestigious race horses he so fervently admired.
