Parfums de Marly Althair

“Althaïr explores a majestic, subtle and surprisingly fresh vanilla that is elegant, generous and charismatic.” Julien Sprecher, Founder and Artistic Director of Parfums de Marly.

Best time to wear: All day long, from morning to evening, especially during the colder months

Julien Sprecher began his journey 20 years ago when niche perfumery was emerging as a sector, responding to the standardization that was happening in traditional perfumery. He wanted to join this movement, confident that he had something to offer. He wanted to build a Haute-Perfumery Maison where tradition matches the present, and in 2009, Parfums de Marly began.

Parfums de Marly puts it simply, "Founder and Creative Director Julien Sprecher’s love of perfumery and history is innate. With Parfums de Marly, he expresses his passion for the olfactory creation and the splendor of the 18th century, through a temporal duality that embodies the spirit of the brand: "A juxtaposition of the present and past as coexisting and unexpected sources of inspiration." A lavish extravagance filtered through a contemporary vision. For Julien Sprecher, classic is always audacious."
