Marchesa Parfum d'Extase Hair Mist review


        Hair mists are this year's hot new perfume innovation. I'm sure many of you can relate when I say scent lovers have long been spritzing their locks with a favorite fragrance. After all, hair is a wonderful way to diffuse scent and leave a lingering trail in your wake. I've just had my first experience with a hair mist, the Marchesa Parfum d'Extase Hair Mist, courtesy of Sephora, and have a review to share with you today!

          Marchesa Parfum d'Extase Hair Mist has the same beautiful fragrance as its namesake perfume. Marchesa Parfum d' Extase is a delicate iris floral with a soft linen-like feel and amber base. The hair mist differs from the original perfume in its packaging, ingredients, and price. The bottle is tall and without embellishment, unlike that of the crystal-clad perfume. The ingredients (see below) are slightly different as well (e.g. the addition of aloe) which presumably helps the fragrance bind to hair. The hair mist is also more cost effective per oz. than using perfume, which is a plus!


Notes: Iris Flower, Black Currant, Young Violet Leaves, Lotus Flower, Night Blooming Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose Water, Orange Blossom, Iris Root, Ambrox, Captive Musks.


         Marchesa Parfum d'Extase Hair Mist ($38 for 1.7 fl. oz.) is a delicate iris scent for fragrancing hair. I find that the hair mist is a nice complement to my full size Marchesa d'Extase Eau de Parfum (which I'm hoping to review soon!). I found that upon usage, the fragrance is quite noticeable to those in close proximity. However, like the original perfume version, Marchesa d'Extase hair mist may have to be reapplied to last through a whole day as the notes are quite delicate and can fade over time. I think wear time will depend on your hair and potentially what other products you're using! Marchesa d'Extase Hair mist can be purchased from Sephora.

           Thanks for reading! Have you tried Marchesa d'Extase? Do you spritz perfume in your hair? Would you purchase a hair mist in the scent of your favorite perfume?

Love, Dovey.

  1. Haha, finally! I have a sample of D'Extase. :D

    This is a much cleaner scent than I expected of Marchesa. I wouldn't mind my hair smelling like it, actually. I usually rely on shampoo to make my hair smell acceptable, but a mist of Caudalie Divine Oil also does a great job of perfuming the hair from time to time.

  2. This is such a great idea! I normally spritz some of my perfume into my hair anyways to make the scent linger longer, but a hair mist just seems much more luxurious ;)

    1. Hi Tiffany, It's great to hear that you spritz scent into you hair too --- the hair mist seems like a good option for those that do :)

  3. Ooooh! I like the sounds of this Dovey! My hair actually really clings to fragrance easily, so I like this idea!

  4. I like this idea. I'd wear a hair mist if it doesn't interfere with my daily perfume.
