Parfum d'Orsay is a stylish and traditional French perfume house known for fine fragrances since 1830 - blending traditional and contemporary techniques to establish a unique range of perfumes and colognes.
Count Alfred d’Orsay (1801-1852) was a French-born dandy, said to be the “most fashionable man in the most fashionable circles in the most fashionable town in the world: London” (Last of the Dandies: The Scandalous Life and Escapades of Count d’Orsay, by Nick Foulkes). He dabbled in perfumery, and reputedly created a fragrance called “Eau de Bouquet”.
The Parfums d’Orsay line was established after his death and named in his honor. Various sources report the founding year as 1865, 1908 and even 1933; 1908 appears to be the most likely. Count D’Orsay’s original “Eau de Bouquet” was reportedly “reworked” into the line’s Etiquette Bleue fragrance. I do not know the detailed history of the line, but they were issuing new fragrances into the the 20th century, and the line was “revived” in 1995.
The connoisseur, the genuine consumer, is always susceptible to beautiful and excellent products. He wants perfume that smell good and have a character. The perfume must have that originality that inspires one to
wear it like a second skin.
The objectives of Parfums d’Orsay today are authenticity, simplicity, quality, timeless whilst having the desire to create and modernise, without forgetting the past.
Our fragrances are the result of a delicate blend of precious and natural ingredients and are developed according to stringent quality criteria based on the savoir-faire of expert craftsmen.
As a major perfume house, the legends we have created like Etiquette Bleue are still popular among our fans.
We like our perfumers to give free rein to their olfactory creativity. Inspired only by images and feelings, they use their nose to create fragrances like a musician composing music.
Our perfumers always strive to find the most unusual notes. Tonka beans, iris, myrrh, exotic wood, opoponax, amber, vanilla and cinnamon are but some of the rare essences used in our fragrances.
Our House operates with partners that are vital to its existence. Selective independent perfumeries and exclusive large department stores know how to convey the philosophy of a quality perfume house correctly and sincerely. They play an essential advisory role, which is why our House guides and supports this type of distribution.
We are perfumers first and foremost. Presentation and decoration are therefore used to highlight our perfumes without shifting the focus from the actual fragrance.
As a pioneer in the world of rare fragrances, our House develops original scents by blending natural essences. Our innovative perfume creations are not suited to everyone. Each scent also expresses itself differently in people, which is why wearing our fragrances allows you to assert your passion while remaining yourself… sublimely yourself.
