"Gai! Marions-nous!", a best-selling novel by Germaine Acremant which won the National Literature Prize in 1927, inspired the House of Oriza L. Legrand, at the height of its fame. Brought to the stage, it became a successful comedy and toured around France and all European capitals.
In 1928, thanks to the Baroness Chaillon, Oriza L. Legrand presented its new perfume "Marions-nous", at once an olfactory comedy and a sappy novel.
Since love and marriage don’t always go together, Marions-nous pairs the virginal facets of Rose and Orange Blossom to the animalic density of Jasmine and Hyacinth.
Complicity shows through courtesy and little arrangements, and the heart notes succumbs under a powdery touch of Carnation and Iris, lathered by a comforting Ylang-Ylang sparkling with Aldehydes.
In the game of love, only mutual consent seals the deal…and one suddenly, surprisingly, falls in love.
Tonka Bean, Civet, Sandalwood and Himalayan Musk scent the air of the quaint and merry wedding ceremony – at last.
“Yay! Let’s get married!”
Marions-nous ! created in 1928, by Oriza L. Legrand.
