Composed by Edmond Roudnitska in the fifties, as a loving gift to his wife, who wore it as her signature scent for the rest of her life, “Le parfum de Thérèse” was very much ahead of its time and even now, some sixty odd years later it still feels incredibly modern while retaining vintage charm and class.
Sometimes, one comes across something so beautiful and harmonious that it almost defies description: this fragrance is one of those things. All there is left to do is to keep breathing and get lost in it, but we’ll do our best to give you an idea about how it smells.
“Le Parfum de Thérèse” starts with a burst of soft, sweet mandarin, that smells golden and warm, like a ray of light suddenly iluminating a dark room, firing up the glow of crystal glasses and gleaming picture frames. The mood is soon getting duskier and more autumnal and the sweetness intensifies ever so slightly as the melon note makes its entrance, alongside an opulent jasmine, that grows deeper and deeper and more sensual as the scent progresses. A leathery, very ripe, almost dry plum with hints of spice adds even more seductive drama to a scent that is already unfolding as rolls of purple velvet. Violet and rose impart a delicate powderiness which softens the elegant woody-earthy base. It’s sophisticated and at the same time carnal and intimate, with unsurpassable subtlety and a kind of quiet, heart-wrenchingly tender voluptuousness that simply begs to be worn on skin.
All we can say is thank you Thérèse for allowing such beauty to be known by others too.
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.
