Since many of you enjoyed getting a peek into my entire feminine perfume collection, I thought I would share my all-time favorite fragrance with you – Delina from Parfums de Marly. Delina is incredibly feminine, romantic and of course, pink! Read on for a look at the full Parfums de Marly Delina collection including my thoughts on the Delina, Delina Exclusif and Delina La Rosée fragrances!

Delina (located in the above photo on the left) is one of Parfum de Marly’s best sellers and unsurprisingly, has a cult following. I’ve actually been using this fragrance since it launched in 2017 and this is by far, the most complimented perfume in my collection. And let’s just say, if I was personified as a fragrance, this would be this one. I think it embodies everything that I stand for. It’s ultra feminine, sophisticated and romantic. It’s a very rich fragrance and this is the scent I think of when I think of Paris. It smells like I’m walking through the most intoxicating, expansive and beautiful rose garden in Versailles. It opens with an explosion of fruity florals and melts down to a luxurious woodsy floral.
It honestly looks and smells like something a princess would wear. The bottle design is elegant and regal. It very much embodies the iconic French Baroque architectural style and includes elegant touches like a jeweled metal top, braided tassel details and the most perfect shade of pink. I would say that the longevity of this fragrance is outstanding, lasting most of the day for me. I think this is an amazing fragrance for year round and any occasion, even everyday wear.
- Top Notes – Rhubarb and Lychee
- Heart Notes – Turkish Rose and Vanilla
- Base Notes – Cashmere Wood and Musk
Delina Exclusif (located on the right) was launched in 2018 and the scent, in my opinion, is much deeper and fruitier than Delina. It’s elegant, dramatic and incredibly feminine. It’s sensual and sweet and smells like I’m walking by a flower vendor on the street located in front of a fragrant bakery – a place where two unmistakable scents converge – you can smell the beautiful mix of flowers along with the sweet aroma of vanilla wafting through the air. It’s such a unique, indulgent and creamy scent! It opens with a blast of fruity pear with the faintest hint of rose and melts down to a delicious vanilla floral.
This is the perfect date night scent. The bottle mirrors that of the original Delina aside from the script in front noting the Delina Exclusif name. Although, I love the classic pink hue, I would have loved to see a deeper shade of pink for this bottle to match the deeper scent. The longevity for this one is also excellent and for me, it actually lasts a bit longer than Delina. Although this would be perfect for year round wear, the deeper scent reminds me of fall and winter version of Delina.
- Top Notes – Pear and Lychee
- Heart Notes – Rosa Damascena and Incense
- Base Notes – Vanilla and Musk
Delina La Rosee (located in the middle) was launched earlier this year and is the newest of the Delina family. It’s ethereal, romantic and classically feminine. It’s much lighter than Delina with a watery take on fresh florals and smells like I’m meandering through a secret garden with an abundance of fresh spring flowers covered in a delicate morning dew. It’s poetic, dream-like and transparent – almost like you’re wearing a thin veil of fragrance that is light and airy but still intoxicating. It opens with a fruity burst of pear and peony with a touch of rose and melts down to a delicate musky floral.
This is the perfect daytime scent. The bottle design is the same as the other two but like scent itself, is a transparent version with a soft pink frosted glass that perfectly embodies the scent of Delina la Rosee. It’s absolutely brilliant and differentiated perfectly! The longevity on this one is quite good but I find that on me, it’s doesn’t last as long as the other two. Although this would also be perfect for year round wear, the lighter scent reminds me of spring and summer version of Delina.
- Top Notes – Pear, Lychee and Bergamot Essence
- Heart Notes – Turkish Rose, Peony and Transparent Flowers
- Base Notes – Soft Wood, Vetiver and White Musk
