Fragrance Spotlight: Parfums de Marly Herod
When Julien Sprecher founded Parfums de Marly in 2009, he was inspired by history and a love of fragrances. Part of this inspiration came from King Louis XV, who was said to have loved his horse races and had a passion for fragrances.
It is rumored that the king would scent each room in his palace, and even had a fragrance created to scent his fountains.
In the beginning, each fragrance that was added to the Parfums de Marly collection was named after a winning racehorse of King Louis XV. One of these horses was named Herod.
Perfumer Olivier Pescheux created the fragrance Herod, which was launched in 2012.
It was created for Men, but is a scent that can be worn by anyone with a taste for Vanilla.
Herod is a sweet, spicy, woody scent with its main notes being Tobacco, Vanilla, and Cinnamon.
The full scent pyramid is:
Leathery Ciste warms the composition, boosting the spicy notes, but this scent stays sweet and warm. It is a great scent for Fall and Winter, and cold weather in general. It has a vibe that is both casual and formal, and is well fitting for any time, place, or occasion.
It is most often compared to Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille.
You can find Herod at Parfumerie Nasreen in the 4.2oz/120ml Eau de Parfum spray as well as the Masculine Discovery Collection, which comes with 10ml/.33oz atomizers of Herod, Layton, Pegasus, and Percival.
