Layton Royal Essence by Parfums De Marly Cologne.
The unisex fragrance of Layton Royal Essence hits citrus, floral, and spicy notes, giving an overall spiced floral scent. It starts with the fruity top notes of apple, mandarin orange, lavender and bergamot. As the top notes level off, jasmine, violet and geranium introduce florals that complement the earlier citrus tones. The base notes of vanilla, cardamom, patchouli, pepper, sandalwood work together to create a spicy, earthy ending to the
perfume, reminiscent of incense and an aromatic herb garden.
The perfume, released in 2016, comes in a frosted navy blue bottle with a raised logo and text. Hamid Merati-Kashani is the nose who created this scent. Parfums De Marly was founded in France and it began releasing perfumes and colognes in 2009, having released 25 scents as of 2018. The company’s aesthetic goal is to launch perfumes that carry the elegance and grandeur of 18th century France, when perfume had an unparalleled importance in the culture.
