Two creators, a meeting around the material

In 2016, Marc-Antoine Barrois launched his first perfume, B683, ten years after the opening of his couture house- a creation born from a meeting with perfumer Quentin Bisch. The story continued with No. 6, a candle launched in 2017, and then with Ganymede, a second perfume born in 2019. These olfactive creations invite you to discover the universe of a couturier: his childhood memories, his dreams of escape and his vision of a certain timeless elegance. 

With B683 Extrait, Marc-Antoine Barrois and Quentin Bisch offer a new dimension of the first creation of the house. An exploration at the heart of the intention of B683, B683 Extrait is thought of as a second skin with an intense and remarkable trail.


Marc-Antoine Barrois is a French couturier born from a northern French family who made a name for themselves in the textile industry. From a very early age, he was fascinated by his grandfather’s elegance which 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.

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.

Marc-Antoine Barrois offers Haute Couture, where service and friendliness are at the heart of the creative process.

The Perfumer:

At the age of 11, Quentin Bisch had a revelation that perfumes were going to be part of his life when smelling opium on his school teacher. But his artistic and creative itinerary first started with music and theater, leading a professional theatrical group for 5 years. Quentin soon realized he was not using his meant-to-be instrument.

He left everything behind and moved to Grasse to learn perfumery. A year later, Jean Guichard recognized his inner talent and invited him to the Perfumery School at Givaudan. In 2011, he finally joined the creative team of Givaudan Fine Fragrance in Paris as a perfumer. 

He has created many perfumes among which are Angel Muse and A*Men Ultra Zest for Mugler, Azzaro pour Homme FreeLight, Missoni de Missoni, Ambre Impérial for Van Cleef & Arpels, La Fin du Monde for État Libre d’Orange, Essencia and 7 for Loewe Sport and Fleur Narcotique for Ex Nihilo...

Quentin Bisch likes more than anything to create emotion, surprise and take people on journeys. With B683, Quentin remarked    "I like the raw and yet so chic aspect of the perfume : a very refined and wild fragrance."
