How to Use:
Frédric Malle believes people should spray perfume where they wish to do so. Some people wear them on their neck or under their wrist, while others prefer to splash or spray fragrances on their chest. Layering across scents is not recommended as our perfumes are each an olfactive work of art, crafted to stand alone and apart.
About the Perfume:
Composed in the fifties by Edmond Roudnitska, one of the most acclaimed perfumers of the 20th Century, it was never commercially produced and remained a legendary well-kept secret; Thérèse, Roudnitska's wife, was the only person allowed to wear it. This masterpiece is an essential testimony to the elegance of a bygone era. Tangerine and melon top notes, roses spiced up with prune as core notes and cedar wood, vetiver and leather base notes endow it with distinction. A cult and radiant perfume.
About the Perfumer:
Born in Nice in 1905, Edmond Roudnitska passed away in 1996. This "perfumer composer", as he defined himself, has profoundly marked his profession and his time. Considered by many to be the inventor of modern perfumery, he was one of the most important "noses" in history. He started as a chemist at Roure Bertrand Dupont were he gained an encyclopedic knowledge of natural and synthetic raw materials. This knowledge allowed him to develop the singularity of his very minimalist and stripped writing. His encounter with Serge Heftler-Louiche, founder of Christian Dior perfumes and Frédéric Malle's grandfather was decisive. Together they created many legendary perfumes: Eau Fraîche, Diorissimo, Diorella and the most emblematic Eau Sauvage.
