Narcissus, Orange Blossom, Neroli
For “Cologne Indélébile” picture an orchard of fully bloomed orange trees transplanted in the humid atmosphere of an Ecuadorean jungle. Dominique Ropion utilises four different types of white musks to give a steamy effect to the floral-citrus blend and prolonge the longevity of the fragrance. Waxy, blanched petals capturing the heady orange sweetness, unfurling gently in the lascivious dampness of a tropical climate: unexpected, sensuous and more than just a simple, no fuss cologne. It has the element of surprise and that ineffable, transportive quality that all good fragrances possess: of taking you to another place and time, without having to board a train or a plane.
And besides it’s a compulsive wrist sniffer: it smells so naturalistic, so luminous and at the same sultry, like bathing in orange blossom water, surrounded by huge lemon trees inside a sauna.
And yes, it does last a long time, remaining fresh and clean throughout, but not without an intriguing, very modern sensuality given by the ambiguous nature of the various synthetic musks employed here: part metallic and part warm, salty skin.
Captivating work and a perfume of our age, perhaps even gazing into the future.
Frédéric Malle introduced the Editions de Parfums in 2000, as a completely original concept whereby the world’s greatest noses composed exclusive, creative fragrances that would be sold under their creator’s names. In an era in which most companies attach more importance to brand names, by intensified marketing campaigns, Malle brings the attention back to the product itself: perfume. Through a simple “back to basics” ideology, the Editions de Parfums are challenging all prevailing trends.
The blend of Frédéric Malle’s ideals with the distinct personalities of each perfumer, and the total freedom provided to them by the Editions de Parfums, has created a brand with no defined house style. Its singularity comes from its striking heterogeneity, where each nose has expressed and unleashed his or her creative instinct to the fullest.
