Stories behind the Brand
Instead of a single creator to take the credit for Parfums d’Orsay, there are stories – tales woven from history. Some have been proven to be true, while others are mere flights of fancy that get your imagination jogging. One thing is certain – these stories revolve around the d’Orsay families, and those are who this brand is named for. In the beginning of the 19th century, Count Alfred d’Orsay discovered his passion for perfuming, and he often times could be found creating numerous fragrances for his lovers and beloved family members and friends. He took pride as a famed dandy and sophisticated gentleman. To this day, we know that the man - whom Parfums d’Orsay honors - was a French-born romantic and artisan with expertise that was only exceeded by his high IQ and expansive intellect.
