Guess who composed “Vétiver Extraordinaire”? None other than Dominique Ropion who seems something of a fetish perfumer chez Malle. And it’s a very good thing indeed as it has proved extremely beneficial both for Monsieur Ropion and for the brand Éditions de Parfums. Dominique has created some of his most accomplished fragrances for the brand, maybe even his lifetime’s masterpieces, and the brand has gained iconic status thanks to his work.
If you are looking for a true vetiver fragrance, with few, but striking embellishments than look no further, as “Vétiver Extraordinaire” boasts no less than 25% concentration of pure Haitian vetiver oil. The smell of vetiver alone it’s so complex that you could simply wear it as a perfume and be done with it, but Dominique Ropion uses five different woods and splashes of bright citric tones to accentuate the striking angular structure of vetiver. He doesn’t try to make it easy to accept instead he simply chooses to show us how unconventionally beautiful this material truly is with its bitter, inky, wet, rooty and mossy facets reminiscent of dark forests and damp earth.
Bohemian and elegant at the same time, with the devastating impact of killer cheekbones and confident atittude, “Vétiver Extraordinaire” is unforgettable and mysterious.
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.
