Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are getting ready to debut their first scent, Marchesa Parfume d’Extase. According to WWD, the fragrance includes a blend of iris, freesia, young violet leaves, night-blooming jasmine, iris root, ambrox, and musk. As the designers tell the paper:

“We didn’t want anything too sweet,” said Craig. “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.”

The bottle design was inspired by raw quartz crystal and bows:

“We looked at our handbags and the signature crystals they have, and we really wanted to incorporate that element,” said Chapman.

Sounds like Marchesa fans will be able to smell as frilly and ladylike as the collection’s red-carpet dresses. I feel pretty, oh so pretty …
