We love Parfums d’Orsay because their name seems to translate into refinement, sophistication, and exquisite beauty – all attributes we adore when it comes to perfumes and colognes that are intermingled to perfection (as these are).

Stories behind the Niche Parfums D'Orsay Paris

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.

The Founder of Parfums d’Orsay

While Parfums d’Orsay is a testament to the legends of the d’Orsay man and family, there is one woman who can be credited with bringing those stories and related fragrances to light – Marie Huet. She is a beautiful, passionate woman with a love for perfumes, spending time with her beloved family, and reveling in the history of the d’Orsay bunch. She began Parfums d’Orsay in 2007 with a dream to recreate the legend-told fragrances that Count Alfred d’Orsay was rumored to have concocted. In doing so, she also discovered more about the others in the d’Orsay family, and they have become a major part in her collection of scents. Every d’Orsay family member tale is honored by a fragrance that matches the evocative details of those stories.

The subject of numerous press releases, Parfums d’Orsay remained one in two fragrance powerhouses that remained strong through the temporary downturn of the perfume market in the mid-2000s. Their staying power can be attributes to their promises of beautiful scents, brand values that include tradition and history, and high standards that every member of the creative team strives to reach with each fragrance. Their brand is built on classic tales and legacies – two aspects that have helped launch Parfums d’Orsay to the tip-top of a rocky market. Perfuming is an industry that is often saturated with mediocre brands, but above them all is Parfums d’Orsay and the magic of their storytelling scents.

The Intense Collection

In the 19th century, sophisticate gentlemen were known as dandies. Their top hats, canes, fine suits, and confidence were unmatched – and that is where the boldness of the Parfums d’Orsay Intense Collection comes from. There are two favorites from this collection – each with distinctive qualities that make them unique in fragrance, story, and design. The Intense Collection begins with Le Dandy Pour Homme – a combination of pineapples, spiced whisky, ginger, and patchouli that was inspired by the dandies of yesteryear. The finishing fragrance is named Le Nomade, which is a blend of zesty lime, sandalwood, jasmine, coriander, and bold vetiver that describes the adventurous soul of ambitious, rustic explorers – opposites to those dandy gentleman.
