“Dries Van Noten” is the first, and so far the only perfume in a Frédéric Malle collection inspired by the world of various personalities that Monsieur Malle himself admires.
We venture to believe there is true friendship between the two designers, one of fashion and the other one of scents, as the perfume created as a tribute to the influential work of Dries van Noten is very warm and inviting, with a soft, gourmand aura.
The main component of the formula is a beautiful, milky Indian Sandalwood note seen through an ornate oriental lattice of spices, balsams and vanilla. This exotic, classically lush structure might be a bit befuddling in connection to the eccentric creations of the Belgian fashion designer, but when we think of the intricate embroideries and vibrant colours and prints often found in his collections in unexpected combinations, it does make a lot of sense.
There’s also a very comforting gourmand element, something that smells a bit like having a cup of hot chocolate with some moreish Belgian waffles or speculoos biscuits. Bright citric notes are used to cut through the oriental richness and the musk accord adds a sensual, carnal frisson to keep things as adventurous and exciting as the Dries van Noten clothes.
It’s an incredibly easy to wear fragrance but with enough edge to keep it interesting and satisfying at all times. We say it’s the perfect candidate for a signature scent.
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.
