Sir Percival is is one of King Arthur's legendary Knights of the Round Table. First made famous by the French author Chretien de Troyes- via Wikipedia
Creative Director Julien Sprecher founded Parfums de Marly in 2009 and continues to draw his inspiration from the past, specifically the grandeur of 18th Century French elegance, with the theme of equestrian and dressage transformed into perfume. Each fragrance is named for a horse or carries the leimotif of the noble animal, and the many breeds throughout the world. We have been fans since the debut in the USA in 2013.
In 2016 and 2017, Sr.Contributor Sebastian Jara reviewed Layton and Layton Exclusif two of his favorites for cooler weather. In his review of Parfums de Marly Percival, composed by Hamid Merati-Kashani of Firmenich he notes that Parfums de Marly Percival is garnering a lot of buzz in the fragrance community and is marketed as the house’s first “ marine scent”. Percival is a departure from any perfume from the House in his opinion; it is fresher and more aromatic" than previous offerings. For Sebastian, the fragrance really warms up on the skin later in the development, with a woody (clearwood© the very first fragrance ingredient designed through White Biotechnology; Clearwood® is the 21st century’s answer to patchouli) spicy dry down, that he finds intoxicating, especially after a long day of running all over town.
