Marquay Perfumes

Marquay of 21 rue la Pelletier, Paris, France.. Established in 1947 by M. Pommez, following the success of his earlier company Dorilly who made luxury presentations in the 1920s. Marquay produced many luxury perfume presentations.

The perfumes of Marquay:
  • 1946 L'Elu
  • 1950 Bien-Aimé
  • 1950 Capri
  • 1950 Eau de Marquay
  • 1950 Impact
  • 1950 Let's Fly

  • 1950 Parfums Choises
  • 1950 Traquenard

  • 1956 Rock and Roll (in the USA this perfume was sold as Coup de Feu)
  • 1958 Elégance de Paris Presentation set with Coup de Feu, Prince Douka & L'Elu

Harper's Bazaar, 1960:
"Coup de Feu by Marquay is another new arrival from Paris. This one, however, is exotic, Oriental, fittingly packaged by Salvador Dali, who knows, if anyone does, about “the flame and explosions of the spirit of youth” typified by this perfumes. Two other perfumes from the same house are newly available here: they are L’Elu and Prince Douka."
