Frederic Malle Carnal Flower Eau de Parfum from John Lewis & Partners

If nature offers olfactive clashes, tuberose is probably the best example of these. An initial impression of innocence and flower-shop freshness disperses to reveal a more lustful tuberose: these dark and spicy notes are enhanced by white musk, to draw out tuberose’s aura of lingering sensuality. This mysterious equilibrium has always fascinated perfumers. Created by Dominique Ropion having worked on the fragrance for 18 months, this scent is a modern interpretation of the forbidden flower. Key notes: water fruits (melon), vegetal notes; tuberose and musk. Key notes: water fruits (melon), vegetal notes; tuberose and musk.

Frederic Malle Sale Gosse Eau de Cologne, 100ml from John Lewis & Partners

About the Perfume: An ode to ‘enfants terribles’ and all manner of monkey business: doodles on the blackboard, devious schemes and pranks galore. Petitgrain, neroli, bergamot and rosemary are infused with a cheeky smile of violet and strawberry for a taste of bubblegum, old-fashioned sweets and getting away with murder. About the Perfumer: Fanny Bal is a force of nature. As Dominique Ropion’s apprentice, she has access to the finest raw materials in the industry and some of its best-kept secrets; and yet, she is constantly surprising her seniors, first at ISIPCA, then at IFF, with her own independent initiatives and rigorous experimentation, both testaments to her flourishing talent. Top notes: Neroli oil, Bergamot, Petitgrain Middle notes: Narcisse Absolute, Rose, Violet Base note: Musc

Frederic Malle Vétiver Extraordinaire Eau de Parfum, 30ml from John Lewis & Partners

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. Highly unusual with its overdose of vetiver (close to 25 percent, three times as much as contained in other vetiver perfumes), Vétiver Extraordinaire has sparked new enthusiasm for this classic men’s fragrance category. Here Dominique Ropion introduces a new essence of Haitian vetiver, stripped of its bitter edge, which he matches with five woody notes to play up the scent’s various facets. The result is surprisingly fresh, crisp and harmonious. A thoroughly polished, nearly purified note to express the essence of a vetiver without ever following the easy road. About the Perfumer: Dominique Ropion trained at the legendary Roure Bertrand Dupont laboratory before going to work with Jean-Louis Sieuzac, one of the perfumery world’s great technicians. Today he is a star perfumer at IFF. What makes Ropion’s work special is the mix of precision and freedom, and his quest to create new, harmonious accords by pairing ingredients, which are polar opposites. An adventurer who abandons himself to instinct, Dominique Ropion is also extremely rigorous in the final stages of the formulation of each of his fragrances. Top notes: bergamot; bitter orange; pink pepper Middle notes: Vetiver; cashmeran; cedar; sandalwood Base notes: oak moss; musk

A most practical host for our iconic perfumes, both at home and on the go. If nature offers olfactive clashes, tuberose is probably the best example of these. These pretty flowers exude an almost carnal smell, superimposing in a quasi-miraculous way flower-shop freshness, camphorous violence – spicy and animalic – and milky sweetness. This mysterious equilibrium has always fascinated perfumers. 18 months were necessary for Dominique Ropion to create a modern version of that theme, an ‘olfactive Everest’ that only the most talented perfumers are capable of reaching.

Frederic Malle French Lover Eau de Parfum from John Lewis & Partners

Having initially worked on the demanding angelica theme, Pierre Bourdon’s trials led him to a new vegetal and musky scent. This perfume has the quintessential qualities of a men’s classic.

French Lover is a dramatic scent that expresses the contained sophistication of the effortlessly elegant man.

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.

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. Launched in 2000, this composition was a turning point in the history of amber orientals. A sensual perfume, powerful yet perfectly controlled, dramatic and mysterious. Composed by Maurice Roucel as an “act of seduction and generosity”, Musc Ravageur is an uncompromising Oriental, which runs against current fads. Its explosive departure of bergamot, tangerine and cinnamon is set against a backdrop of vanilla, musk and amber. A sexy, turbulent perfume, in a word: ravageur. About the Perfumer: Maurice Roucel joined the Chanel laboratories as a chemist in 1973. This self-taught man defines himself as an explorer that wanders through formulas. At the time, he started breaking down then studying each formula, each raw material from a part aesthetic, part chemist perspective that still is his strength today. His generous writing is often based on musk notes, white flowers or amber. That is how he obtains an opulent sensuality that is his signature. Maurice Roucel’s strong personality allows him to bypass trends. That is how he created Musc Ravageur a perfume that ran against the fads of the time, a forerunner of all the new orientals that emerged in 2001.

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. Allure irrésistible. At a party on Paris’ rive gauche, a woman’s fur coat is lifted from her bare shoulders, exposing her neck to the candlelight.

A sensuous body of lavender is warmed by patchouli, amber and vanilla, and transformed by notes of pineapple and mandarin. The music is in the detail. A childhood spent in Tangier close to natural ingredients gave Carlos Benaïm a taste for beauty. A training under legendary American perfumer Ernest Shiftan gave him boldness and bravado. As for the fact that he always comes up with these elegant accords, it must come from his mysterious inner compass.

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.

More perfuming than Cologne Bigarade, Bigarade Concentrée exudes a lasting natural freshness. Born into a family of perfumers from Grasse, Jean-Claude Ellena was introduced to the art of developing fragrances as a teenager. Self-taught, he defines his creations as a poetry of memory. Everyday smells; wax floors, clean sheets, skin, an old sweater – are his greatest inspiration. Jean Claude Ellena never raises his voice, although he is heard loud and clear. His signature is simple, minimalist and modern. His style is often compared to watercolours or chamber music.
