Parfums MDCI (Marchal Design & Créations Indépendantes), a brainchild of Claude Marchal, is a small and very chic French company that was built on the philosophy, which states that fine fragrances are an art more than an industry, and should be a source of pleasure, pride and beauty more than a simple commodity. MDCI was born out of the admiration for the period of Renaissance and the desire to create contemporary equivalents of the precious objects once owned by the Medicis and the Sun King and now kept in the Louvre, Musei dei Uffizzi, and the Treasure Room in Vienna.
The fragrances are as exquisite as the bottles that house them. The MDCI scents were created by such renowned perfumers as Pierre Bourdon, Francis Kurkdjian, and Stéphanie Bakouche. Following its philosophy of perfume being an art, MDCI has given the perfumers absolute freedom and no cost limit. The only requirement was not to try to please the greatest possible number, not to imitate or follow trends. Only the very highest quality ingredients were used in the creation, none of them of animalic origin.
