Scent Description

Pegasus- the horse God, the heavenly stallion portrayed in Coustou's famed statue. A creature of such power, refinement and nobility that only a God himself would dare attempt to ride him. In this spirit, Parfums de Marly's Pegasus is, itself, fragrance nobility- a skillfully refined take on the fougere style featuring unexpected notes of almond and vanilla that give it unique lasting power and striking dignity.

Pegasus opens with the aforementioned almond note- lightly sweet, somewhat bitter, and warm, given juicy heft by a more traditionally fougere-like bergamot. The heart of the fragrance further expands on the almonds' sweet, marzipan-like depth, while an unlisted floral accord (lavender and jasmine?)exudes gentle, refined masculinity. In the base, vanilla is the clear star of the show, replacing a traditional fougere's mossiness with creamy warmth supplemented by amber notes, while a light, sharp sandalwood keeps everything airy enough to still earn the genre. To read the notes of Pegasus is to wonder how it earns a categorization as a men's fougere- to smell it, on the other hand, is to be so swept up in its sophistication and majesty that you've no choice but to understand.
