Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are bringing the glamour and elegance of the Marchesa label into an exquisite fragrance called Marchesa Parfume d’Extase. This new fragrance, which aims to recreate the sophistication of eveningwear and bottle it for women to experience, is a collaboration between designer Chapman and co-founded Craig. “Eveningwear evokes an emotion, and this scent does the same thing,” Chapman explained to Women’s Wear Daily.
Without wanting their debut fragrance to smell too sweet or sickly, they concocted a glorious blend that consists of iris, freesia and young violet leaves on top, jasmine in the middle, and iris root, ambrox and musk resting at the base. Meanwhile, just as luxurious as the label’s heavily desired collections is the striking crystal-embellished bottle. Decorated with a raw quartz crystal brand and crystal accents, Chapman and Craig truly incorporated the femininity and refinement of the Marchesa aesthetics into their debut scent.
The Marchesa Parfume d’Extase will be available exclusively in Sephora stores by September, while Sephora.com will carry the scent on August 24. The fragrance will arrive in a 30 and 50mL flacon, and will retail for $60 and $85, respectively.
