Frédéric Malle: On Perfume Making

Text by Frédéric Malle. Foreword by Catherine Deneuve. Illustrations by Konstantin Kakanias.

Frédéric Malle: On Perfume MakingPerfumier Frédéric Malle was born into the world of fragrances: his grandfather was Serge Heftler, founder of Dior Parfums. However, Malle describes his own role as that of a publisher, likening his label Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, founded in 2000, to the great French publisher Gallimard: “Not only did Gallimard publish the best authors in its time, but its books also look like nothing else,” Malle explains. “I said to myself, ‘I’ll do an Editions de Parfums like Editions Gallimard.’” The packaging of Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is modeled on Gallimard’s simple red and cream cover design, declaring the modest, unostentatious sensibility of its founder. Malle also functions as something of a curator: when developing a fragrance, he invites the best contemporary perfumers and gives them absolute creative freedom, supplying them with both an unlimited selection of ingredients and as much time as needed to compose the best possible scent. Pierre Bourdon, Jean-Claude Ellena, Edouard Fléchier, Olivia Giacobetti, Dominique Ropion, Maurice Roucel, Edmond Roudnitska, Michel Roudnitska and Ralf Schwieger are among the many perfumiers who have collaborated with Malle. In this beautifully produced luxury volume, Malle describes the process of creating a fragrance and collaborating with these great perfumiers. With a foreword by Catherine Deneuve, On Perfume Making offers a rare glimpse into the refined world of contemporary perfume.

Frédéric Malle: On Perfume Making

FROM THE BOOK
"I was always the faithful sort: L’Heure Bleue by Guerlain was my signature scent. Until I discovered Frédéric Malle, that is. When I read about his company, producing perfumes by artists such as Olivia Giacobetti, I was utterly captivated I had to find out more. I love the way Frédéric works, building intriguing layers of notes and experimenting with a new rainbow of scents: spraying my hair with musk in the summer months, heading towards amber notes in the autumn, then jasmine and gardenia for springtime. I flit from one perfume to another the same way for my film roles. I chose Noir Epices by Michel Roudnitska to embody Marie Bonaparte. For my most recent film, Les Bien aimés, directed by Christophe Honoré, I immediately thought of Ralf Schwieger’s Lipstick Rose for my character, who is ever so chic with her stylish tastes and Roger Vivier shoes. I love the idea of a perfume foreshadowing an atmosphere, reflecting a mood, and rounding out a character. I also love it when perfumes set out to echo film characters, like Iris Poudre by Pierre Bourdon, inspired by Belle de Jour. The secret, diffuse mystery of perfume is part of the magic of life – part of what turns our heads when we catch a trail of scent in the street or on the warm sheets of a lover’s bed."

– Catherine Deneuve, excerpted from Frédéric Malle: On Perfume Making
