“Gai! Marions-Nous” [“Great! Let’s Get Married”] was the title of a successful novel by Germaine Acrement that won the National Literature Prize in 1927. Adapted for the stage, it was performed in Paris and other major European capitals and, at the height of its glory, inspired the House of Oriza L. Legrand to create a new fragrance.
Almost a “novel” in itself, “Marions-nous” (1928) was an expression of sensory playfulness.
Inspired by love and marriage, which are not always related to each other, “Marions-nous” offers the virginal touches of orange blossom, rose, jasmine, and hyacinth.
In an interplay of propriety and informal understandings, the marriage reaches its peak as the heart succumbs to the essences of carnation and iris and the comforting accents of aldehydes and Ylang Ylang.
On the chessboard of Love, mutual consent seals the arrangement… and we slip into the gentle clutches of sweet emotion.
Tonka Beans, Musk Tonkinese accord, Civet, and Sandalwood add their fragrances to the happy ceremony… “Gai! Marions-nous!”
