Althaïr by Parfums de Marly is a seamlessly blended unisex vanilla fragrance that is every bit as elegant as it is warm and comforting. Made with real Bourbon vanilla, the sweetness is tempered with a touch of citrus and a smooth spice blend over fantastically dry woods. We challenge anyone not to love this excellent composition.

From Parfums de Marly
Althaïr is an unexpected, modern ode to a universal ingredient of perfumery: Bourbon vanilla, a direct descendant of the vanilla introduced in France under the reign of Louis XV.

This modern tribute features high-quality Bourbon vanilla blended with citrus, spices and noble woods for a balance of warmth and freshness. Althaïr boasts a captivating contrast between traditional and disruptive notes, delivering distinct opulence that can seduce both men and women.

"Althaïir explores a majestic, subtle and surprisingly fresh vanilla that is elegant, generous and charismatic.” – Julien Sprecher, Founder and Artistic Director of Parfums de Marly.
