Verre de rhum sur du bois - Marylise Mirabelli parfums - blog Magnifiscents


What are artistic perfumes?

These are perfumes that have a history, that appeal to a deeper sense. 

The way they are created emerges from a personal, subjective definition... 

Fragrances that are therefore surprising, with olfactory biases. They do not follow a trend, and this, in order to recreate a universe, in the case of Marylise Mirabelli perfumes, musical and visual. 

Creations that will appeal to lovers of artistic perfumery and unconventional fragrances.

The fruit of imagination.

I chose not to have perfumes tested before their launch, leaving the surprise of discovery for each olfactory transcription. 

Each fragrance comes out of the imagination and what I wanted to make people feel.

They are created to transcribe the scripts of songs and music videos — Thus, their scent evolves so as to tell the story as it goes.


Choosing perfumery was the way to be taken in visual scenarios. Smell is one of the senses that makes us realize that we are really present in a place. We can see and listen to a video on TV without being there, but being able to smell it's atmosphere is only possible if we are there. 

By creating a fragrance inspired by sounds and images, it allows us to be present in the story.

On the other hand, by having a musical and visual support, it also helps the public to get an idea of the spirit of the perfume without having smelled it beforehand.

CLUB 30’S — Inspired by "Smooth Criminal". It focuses on the main character. A perfume that characterizes his gentlemanly appearance and charisma, and from which we can follow his fresh and flowery sillage like a spotlight through the atmosphere of a club with old parquet floors, and the aromas of alcohol characteristic of a gangster lair. 

DIANESQUE Inspired by "Dirty Diana". This perfume is a representation of Diana. It describes her leather clothes, her sensuality, and the fragrance that a femme fatale like her could wear. It then surrounds itself with the animal side and vintage rock'n'roll from a concert's backstage. 

SUITE 1209 — Inspired by "Who is It". This one is more focused on ambiance and decor. With a solar opening that represents the golden hour, this glittering light slowly dims to sink into a more nocturnal and intimate atmosphere and will describe the essence of palaces clad in noble woods. A floral accord embodies a refined woman dressed in her Chanel suit, enveloped by a luxurious environment.

Iconic perfumes.

As you will have understood, Marylise Mirabelli perfumes are designed to recreate the atmosphere of Michael Jackson's musical universe.

Besides, the King of Pop loved beautiful perfumes.
For the anecdote, Elizabeth Taylor wore Bal à Versailles by Jean Desprez, and she introduced him to it.
A beautiful vintage amber fragrance from 1962.

It has become his signature fragrance, just like Tom Ford's Black Orchid...

Two sophisticated, powerful perfumes, definitely from the rank of such icons!

When admiration becomes homage.

The diversity and beauty of his creations made me want to do something special in his honour — with an icon as inspiration, these fragrances had to be up to his standards: high quality and beautiful, or as I call them "magnifiscents"! 


Whether in fashion, music or movies, many great artists have been inspired and influenced by this precursor. 

Winks that refer to his music videos or to the representation of a whole era and generation, covers of his songs, or the trigger of the creativity of stylists. 

Here are some examples.
