    The Multi-Sensory Fragrance Experience, Editions de Parfums’, Frédéric Malle

    The Multi-Sensory Fragrance Experience, Editions de Parfums’, Frédéric Malle

    Frédéric Malle founded Editions de Parfums in 2000, the only perfume brand in the industry to uphold the skill of its perfumers, and the quality of the raw materials they use, as their primary concern and source of pride. The confluence of these two factors produces an extraordinary result: a brand of uncompromised quality and unbiased creativity. Under Frédéric’s guidance as a perfume publisher, who pushes them to their creative limit and leads them into new olfactory territory, perfumers produce unique works of art sold under their own names. Together, the perfumers and publisher realize a vision of perfume as the masterful result of time, precision and true talent. We talk about: his introduction and evolution in the industry, his creation process, innovations in development, and more.
