We might not be able to justify incorporating Marchesa
into our daily wardrobe rotation—though we'd wear this K-Stew gown
all day, every day if we could—but smelling like the designer's signature glamour? That's a different story.
According to a report in WWD
, Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman
and Keren Craig
are launching the brand's first fragrance this fall, called Marchesa Parfume d’Extase.
Like Marchesa's dazzling dresses, the crystal-cut bottle features plenty of bling and intricate detail. The scent itself contains top notes of iris, freesia and young violet leaves; a heart of night-blooming jasmine, and a drydown of iris root, ambrox and musk.
“We didn’t want anything too sweet,” Craig told WWD
. “Georgina and I don’t like perfumes that can smell sort of sickly, so that was very important when we were going through the process.”
For a much pared-down price tag, Marchesa in a bottle runs for $60 to $85 and, in a rollerball, for $25. The Sephora-exclusive fragrance hits stores in September and online at Sephora.com
on August 24th.
We can't wait! What about you? And what other Marchesa gowns do you obsess over? Let us know in the comments!
