D’Orsay C.G.

J’ai l’air de ce que je suis. J.R.

French for ‘I look like I am’, this fragrance is simple, fresh, delicate, and woody. J.R. invites tête-à-tête (face to face) – up close and personal. Notes of clementine, narcissus and musk invite tenderness. J.R. is not desperate to seduce, entertain or engage in vanity. It exemplifies restraint, reassurance, and reliance. This fragrance delivers on its promise of a delicacy and serenity.

Just Real

Launched in 2019, the J.R. fragrance quickly became one of D’Orsay’s best sellers. This eau de toilette with unique notes of clementine, narcissus and musk designed by Karine Chevallier is of absolute tenderness. J.R. as « Just Real » because it is a perfume made of sincerity, which does not show any artifice. What you see is there, uncovered, simple, benevolent.

From the Perfumer

The structure of this fragrance is based around a heart made from absolute narcissus, which is one of the most beautiful raw materials in a perfumer’s palette. I used both its manly woody and leathery side and its feminine floral facade but also an intangible and dreamlike aspect that is a bit musky and a bit milky that ties everything together in harmony.

— Karine Chevallier


D’Orsay imagines special fragrances, evoking the universality of the state of love and exploring its many facets: caring love, free, paradoxical, ardent, adventurous, tender, striking, impulsive, sincere, spiritual, secret, tactile, unwavering… D’Orsay perfumes are designed for couples, echoing the first historic fragrance designed in 1830 by Alfred d’Orsay for him and his forbidden lover, Lady Marguerite Blessington. Each creation is named after an index sentence, signed with the initials of a personality whose identity is left to the imagination of each.



Maison d’Orsay was originally founded in Paris in 1830 by Count Alfred d’Orsay. D’Orsay was known at the time to have been passionate, artistic, and flamboyant. He was an influential icon of the nineteenth century. He sought pleasure at all cost, which resulted in large debts and romantic affairs.

The fragrance house published nearly fifty perfumes that were distributed across the globe, in boutiques in Paris, London, and New York. At the time, the D’Orsay fragrances were highly artistic and forward-thinking, as they were inspired by love and desire, and were designed to be shared by couples. Alfred d’Orsay’s very first fragrance was an ode to his forbidden love of Lady Marguerite Blessington – a love story of illicit desire and intimacy.

In 2015, Amélie Huynh gave Maison d’Orsay a new lease of life, redesigning an olfactory line to honour the brand’s heritage. The fragrances are based on Alfred d’Orsay’s original line-up, reimagined by prestigious perfumers such as Olivia Giacobetti, Mark Buxton, Karine Chevalier, Bertrand Duchaufour, Fanny Bal, and Vincent Ricord.

Everything we do references the romantic sensibility of Count d’Orsay – from the illicit affair to the sense of carnal desire.
— Amélie Huynh, CEO & founder

Each fragrance is composed as a declaration of love, exploring its many facets. They are genderless and can be worn by couples, just as the originals by Alfred d’Orsday. Each scent explores duality in some sense, which is a concept echoed throughout the brand. In homage to the lost correspondences between Alfred and Marguerite, each perfume name is composed like a love letter and signed with initials – these initials referring to a secret identity that will never be revealed.

D’Orsay have two boutiques in Paris and one in Tokyo. Each boutique has been meticulously designed to capture the sense of mystique, passion, and eloquence of Count d’Orsay, with sleek woods and brass fittings, with cabinets of multiple drawers in which secret scents are carefully locked away like hidden treasures.

All of the production takes place in France, with fragrances made between Paris and Provencal perfume capital, Grasse. The bottles, caps, and spray mechanisms are also produced in France.
