Frederic Malle French Lover Eau de Parfum, 30ml from John Lewis

Combining beauty, simplicity and convenience, the 30ml spray offers our signature uncompromising perfumes in a more widely attainable compact size whilst drawing aesthetic inspiration from 20th century conceptual art and modernist design. In the spirit of Bauhaus, form follows function: a simple black cylinder in high shine polyethylene plastic with a matte anodised metal centre and magnetic cap. A most practical host for our iconic perfumes, both at home and on the go. Having initially worked on the demanding angelica theme, Pierre Bourdon’s trials led him to a new vegetal animality. This perfume has the quintessential qualities of a men’s classic. It is a sort of skin enhancer, as the smell of patchouli, incense, tree moss and cedar mingles with one’s natural odor. This suave base also serves as the cornerstone of a massive dose of angelica, galbanum and pimento. Bois d’Orage (which translates in English into thunder wood), is a dramatic, almost Wagnerian composition that expresses the contained sophistication of the effortlessly elegant man. About the Perfumer: Pierre Bourdon earned a degree in political science before changing directions and enrolling in the Roure Bertrand Dupont school in Grasse. He then became the only protégé of celebrated perfumer Edmond Roudnitska. His professional career began at Roure in Paris in the late 70’s. In the 1980s, he revolutionised perfume trends with his men’s fragrance ‘Cool Water’ for Davidoff. Today, Bourdon is considered one of the most innovative perfumers of his generation.
