Messy Sexy Just Rolled Out Of Bed - A Lab On Fire

For a long time, I followed the work of the American brand A Lab on Fire, trying to understand what this brand, which grew out of "the smallest perfume brand in the world" (self-designation of the New York brand S-Perfume) and eventually moved from New-York to warm Los Angeles, reminds me of. Not so long ago, I realized that it could be called an inexpensive junior line of Frederic Malle: celebr...

Why is Musc Ravageur So Memorable?

Frédéric Malle’s Musc Ravageur, composed by Maurice Roucel in 2000, is probably the most popular musk perfume of all time in the artisanal world, both for sales and renown. Fragrantica totals 516 reviews of the scent, close behind Carnal Flower with 527 and Portrait Of A Lady with 532. Other evaluations to notice are that most users think Musc Ravageur is an evening or night-time scent most su...

Portrait of a Lady: the Frederic Malle Mega-Cult

Some perfumes are the result of a long and arduous process of diversity and painstakingly acquired knowledge. There are no accidents, much as fragrant lore wants you to think so. In an interview with National Post Magazine Frederic Malle answers the question about who he thinks is the best working perfumer of today and why: "Without a doubt Dominique Ropion. He’s very very knowledgeable — the ... Read full article: Portrait of a Lady: the Frederic Malle Mega-Cult from Fragrantica Perfumes and C...

Maison Montespan

Last October I was invited to check out Maison Montespan a new, luxury residence, for short term rentals in Paris.   Just to give you a bit of background and context, I’ve visited and stayed in some of the top five-star hotels in Paris and throughout Europe in the past eight years. After visiting so many of these hotels, the bar for luxury has been set so high and it takes a lot to impress me. I don’t mean to come off like a snob or being jaded, it’s just that the word “luxury” seems to b...

Artistique Collection: Art Perfumes by Avon?

What is niche perfumery? At one time, niche perfumes were defined like this: Fragrances that are not for everyone, absent advertising, exclusive distribution (a limited number of stores), higher cost compared to the luxury segment, the author's conceptual approach to creating fragrances, and unified bottles and packaging. Frederic Malle made perfumers to be the stars of his fragrances, and this a... Read full article: Artistique Collection: Art Perfumes by Avon? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Co...

Seven Frederic Malle Classics Inspired By The Work Of Carlos Scarpa

In our present age, perfumers are not "behind the scenes" anymore; they are presented in the best way with each Malle edition. As the authors of p...

Alber Elbaz Is Still Very Much Inspired By Women — & Change

In the three years since Alber Elbaz left his post at Lanvin, the French fashion house where he served as its charismatic and whimsical creative director, he’s tried his hand at a few different collaborations. There was the fragrance he made with Frederic Malle, an anniversary collection for Converse, and now, a line of bags for LeSportsac.“They did the bags and I did the sketches,” Elbaz tells Refinery29 of the range of nylon weekenders, cosmetic cases, totes, and crossbody bags. “Fashion is t...

032c’s Maria Koch: "It’s Not That We’re Looking To Create Hype"

If you were to heed the words printed on the latest drops of bi-annual culture magazine 032c’s recently launched line of apparel, you’d be right to indeed resist the “resist” sweatshirt. Yet as soon as somebody like DJ Peggy Gou is spotted wearing one on Instagram, it sells out instantly. The 032c fanbase is growing as much offline as it is online, embodying the free spirit of a brand that took its name from a Pantone shade of red. While the vibrant color still forms the basis of each issue’s ...

These Citrus Fragrances Smell Like Sunshine In A Bottle

Sinking your teeth into the tart, juicy flesh of a lemon might make your eyes tear. Applying its acidic pulp directly to your skin might destroy your moisture barrier. Squirting orange in your eye while cutting up slices might sting like hell. Squeezing a lime in the sunshine might land you with phytophotodermatitis, which is almost worth it for a fresh margarita not from concentrate. But the downsides end there: Citrus fruits taste good, smell good, and are good for you.Key lime, Persian lime,...

Portrait of a Lady (Frederic Malle): A New Format of Wearing Perfume
