How to Use:
Frédéric 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:
Some fragrances revel in their ambiguity. Noir Epices is an Oriental, which spares the vanilla and embraces spicy notes that suggest exotic and mysterious journeys. Long on nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and pepper, Michel Roudnitska's scent is topped with geranium and backed by precious woods, including sandalwood and patchouli. A woody oriental, a near Chypre, its sensuality is elegant, never lascivious.
About the Perfumer:
Born in 1948, Michel Roudnitska spent his childhood in his parents' laboratory. An art that became natural to him, that he likes to define as "physical", his mother tongue in a sense. Initiated for almost ten years to the art of composition by his father, Edmond Roudnitska, he broadened his artistic expression by becoming a photographer and director. Since 1997, he has been running the creation studio Art & Parfum where he creates perfumes of great aesthetic rigor. Michel Roudnitska is one of the only perfumers who, like his father, envisions his trade like an artist in the broad sense of the term.
