‘I like the raw and yet so chic aspect of the perfume : a very refined and wild fragrance’ – Quentin Bisch
B683 is a result of the meeting of two young designers. One is a couturier, the other a perfumer. Their childhood memories brought them together. Remembering captivating smells; of the leather from an elegant attaché case or an immaculate desk blotter; distinct smells of wood during the regular gathering of fuel to warm the family home. The artistic skills of the former and the olfactory talent of the latter together sparked a magical and pleasant fragrance with its notes of spices, leather and wood.

Marc-Antoine Barrois is a French couturier born from a northern French family who had made name for themselves in the textile industry. From a very early age he was fascinated by his grandfather’s elegance that drove him to seek the art of simple luxury without ostentation but assuredly with finesse. After learning patterns, cutting and sewing as he was studying textile engineering, he designed his first collection in Lille in 2006. This success then led Marc-Antoine Barrois to work with Dominique Sirop, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jean-Claude Jitrois before creating his own Maison de Couture for men. Offering men what women have already in Haute Couture, Marc-Antoine Barrois designs unique suits, tuxedos and jackets for confidential clients seeking exclusivity. The first MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS boutique opened in 2013 on rue de Budapest in Paris and offers Parisian crafted collections of jewels and accessories alongside his bespoke clothing. As a result of the heart of the creative process, he defines his world as a new constellation offering handcrafted luxury in a place where service and a warm of spirit prevail.
