Ganymede awarded twice by the Fragrance Foundation
In these extraordinary times, we are proud to share our news with you: This year, the Fragrance Foundation U.K. awarded the “Extraordinary Perfume” prize to Ganymede, one of several hundred international perfumes created in 2019 by prestigious companies. In recognition of the exceptional work of perfumer Quentin Bisch for the House of Marc-Antoine Barrois, the jury of experts from the Fragrance Foundation France also awarded him the prize for the best perfume from an independent niche brand.
Little actions for our planet
The DNA of the Maison MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS is to offer made-to-measure clothing. We also sometimes transform clients’ old clothes to create a new contemporary outfit. However, in addition to the know-how and the aestheticism of the pieces, it is above all a thoughtful consumption of clothes that have not crossed the planet twice and that will last.
Concerned about our environmental impact, we pursue this same commitment through choices made on a daily basis. In 2019, we have chosen to remove the cellophaning from our perfume boxes, which can also be reused as they are large enough to store postcards for example. Nowadays, we reuse all the newspapers and cardboard boxes that we receive as packing material in our parcels and recently we bought our cardboard boxes from a great association: Les Amis de Germenoy, which offers work to adults with disabilities.
These are small actions for our planet but it is consistent with our convictions without devaluing the quality or integrity of the products of the Maison MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS.
Scented candle N°6
To fill the whole Maison de Couture MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS, located at N°6 rue de Budapest in Paris, with the smell of authenticity and refinement, perfumer Quentin Bisch immersed himself in the universe of the couturier once more. That way he worked around the same leathery, woody and spicy frame, adding up amber scents and smoothing it with smoky notes to create a scented candle which shows his taste for refined materials.
