Born into a textile family in northern France, Marc-Antoine Barrois has sought the art of simple luxury without ostentation but assuredly with finesse. After working closely with Jean-Paul Gaultier at Hermès and Giambattista Valli, he felt a real need for unique, creative, and elegant pieces for men in Haute Couture. Since 2009, Marc-Antoine Barrois has been offering a highly contemporary service, offering men what women already had the pleasure of wearing for years in Haute Couture. Six years later, a chance encounter pathed the way for a new form of artistic expression for Marc-Antoine. Two young creators, one is a perfumer, the other a fashion designer. Quentin Bisch and Marc-Antoine Barrois met in 2015 and immediately created an extraordinary creative partnership. Childhood memories, shared values, love for beautiful materials, and respect for certain sobriety have brought them together around the challenge of defining and redefining new and timeless elegance.
The result of this creative fusion? Three beautiful fragrances. Let's dive deeper and explore the inspiration for each.
The asteroid of the Little Prince inspires the name by Saint Exupery and by the birth date of the couturier who made it his imaginary planet. It is a fragrance that blends leather and spice in a subtle, powerful, and distinguished refinement. B683 is an invitation to explore…to travel on his planet where unique bespoke pieces, collections, jewels, and accessories meet a genius symbiosis of poetry and dream with arts and crafts. Subtly combines refined woody essences, sensual spicy notes of pepper and chili, and the heady smell of leather infused with the oakmoss and ambroxan accords. There is an oud and apple amplified Extrait version of this beauty with a liquorish top note to spice things up.
