The story of House D'Orsay is first and foremost about love, one that leads to great things. It all started with Alfred d'Orsay, son of a Napoleonic general and grandson of Madame Crawford. His charismatic personality coupled with his artistic talents charmed the intellectual elite of his time, such as Victor Hugo, George Sand and Alexandre Dumas, whom he counted among his close friends. At the beginning of the 19th century he met Marguerite Blessington with whom he fell deeply in love and had a romantic relationship. The idea of being apart was unbearable to him, so he decided to create a perfume as a symbol of their connection, that they both wore day and night. The house D'Orsay was then founded in 1830 and continues till this day to pay homage to the refined tastes of Count Alfred d'Orsay, by searching for a beauty that reveals personalities through souls' expressions. From this romanticism, elegant creations emerged, characterized by an emotional delicacy and a high sense of aesthetic. Each fragrance is made in France from the finest materials and encased in glass bottles specifically designed in-house as true art objects. The "body" range takes on the initials of a well renown personality, and for the explorer among us, one can try to guess his or her true identity by deciphering hidden clues in each fragrance description. Home fragrances and room sprays evoke encounters with a time and place, enough to add a flair of mystery and poetry to any interior.> View more
