Parfums de Marly Pegasus – A rare smell
These of who don’t know the Parfums de Marly Pegasus is a great niche fragrance created by a legendary perfume company Parfums de Marly. Why I say it’s a rare smell? Because this is an almond and vanilla based fragrance with lot of floral notes. Not so masculine and it’s very rare to find a good fragrance in almond base. I must tell you though this is a fragrance where ladies love but you need confident to pull it off because it contains lot of floral notes and as long as you could act not shy and confident this fragrance give you a huge boost to your personality.
Parfums de Marly Pegasus is a fragrance where if you a confident guy then it gives more confident, If you are a timid guy then it makes you look silly. So it’s a one of a kind fragrance. Definitely not recommend for amateurs because this is a high class fragrance and if things go right then even Creed aventus can’t be compared with.
Parfums de Marly
Parfums de Marly is a French niche fragrance house started way back in 1743. After more than 2 and half centuries the company going strong and well reputed for this day with their fragrances and quality. Parfums de Marly Pegasus was introduced in 2011 as oriental and bitter fragrance. But when you smell it. You won’t notice the bitterness in the scent. The company Parfums de Marly have many perfumes in their belt but most recent success once include Pegasus, Herod and Layton.
Scent and notes
Opening burst of the fragrance give the all famous bergamot not upfront with some spicy cumin smell as well as florally smell. Little more of almond and vanilla smell blend to the opening
In the dry down Almond and Vanilla smells get stronger and stronger while Sandalwood, lavender, jasmine, amber and heliotrope notes get blend together. The opening notes also blend together to bring a very authentic spicy floral and fruity mixture perfume smell. A tad of bitterness from bitter almond contain with bit of sweetness to it.
Parfums de Marly Pegasus is famous for its longevity. Especially in winter time the fragrance last for well over 10 hours. Some say it long lasting for 12 hours without an issue. I don’t think that is an amazing feat comparing all the fragrances made by the Parfums de Marly Company and their years of experience. But in the summer well don’t wore this at summer. Period. Because as I said before this is a sweeter fruity and floral fragrance. Other times I would say meh. Just do it at your own risk. But for this piece. I strongly recommend that wore something suitable for summer. This is not your jam for summer.
Does not have a beast mode project like any other niche fragrances. Rightfully so. You don’t need a fragrance to project all over the room. It will be interesting for day 01. But after that you will become the joke of the place. The guy who over spray perfumes. So I would say this is perfect. Parfums de Marly Pegasus have a silage of arm length to 3 feet away from you. For a solid 3 hours the perfume will project without reducing the strength and for next 2 hours it will be reduce the strength. After that It will become a close to skin scent but if someone comes to very near you then they can smell you.
As I mentioned several times in this article, Parfums de Marly Pegasus is not so versatile. It is very unique and powerful fragrance. Definitely suit for colder weather and need confident to pull it off. Especially if you are good at fragrance game. Have experience with some of the good fragrances then this will be your cup of tea. Not for the teenage crowd. Parfums de Marly Pegasus is a bit more youth plus mature crowd. But if you could wore this with confident then I don’t think even La Nuit de l`Homme can beat the lady killing power.
All the Parfums de Marly perfumes are greatly manufactured. You could tell it pricy by looking at the bottle. Box content of reflective plate with metal color and its embedded to the box including the log of Parfums de Marly. Description about bottle is located in the box. Bottle is definitely very heavy. One of the heaviest bottles I reviewed so far. Again the Parfums de Marly logo embedded to the bottle. The cap is also very very heavy. Sprayer is giving off a wide mist and bottle looks very premium. I would totally give the full mark for this presentation.
Parfums de Marly Pegasus is a niche fragrance. So it’s obviously at high price category. But not so much high as other niche counter parts. 125ml bottle will cost around 200$ dollars on average and you can always find offers and sales. But the most important thing to remember is don’t blind buy this. Get a sample and then test it few times. If you love it then go for the big bottle. You wouldn’t regret it.
Parfums de Marly Pegasus is an almond vanilla mix authentic niche fragrance from a very old fragrance house. The pros are great smell, good presentation and beast mode performance. The cons are very limited versatile. Definitely recommend for experience perfume lovers to enjoy this great scent.
