Combining beauty, simplicity and convenience, the 30ml spray offers our signature uncompromising perfumes in a more widely attainable compact size whilst drawing aesthetic inspiration from 20th-century conceptual art and modernist design.
In the spirit of Bauhaus, form follows function: a simple black cylinder in high shine polyethylene plastic with a matte anodised metal centre and magnetic cap. A most practical host for our iconic perfumes, both at home and on the go.
A clean, yet surprisingly magnetic scent. A modern yet traditional Eau de Cologne that lasts for hours on end. Dominique Ropion embraced the ambiguous nature of musk, both erotic and clean, to create a very personal interpretation of an Eau de Cologne. Added a dash of the best neroli intertwined with orange blossom, and bergamot for a very long-lasting perfume... Cologne Indélébile (Permanent Cologne).
Dominique Ropion trained at the legendary Roure Bertrand Dupont laboratory before going to work with Jean-Louis Sieuzac, one of the perfumery world's great technicians. Today he is a star perfumer at IFF. What makes Ropion's work special is the mix of precision and freedom, and his quest to create new, harmonious accords by pairing ingredients, which are polar opposites. An adventurer who abandons himself to instinct, Dominique Ropion is also extremely rigorous in the final stages of the formulation of each of his fragrances.

Frédéric Malle was born into a French family of industrialists, artists and perfumers. His grandfather, Serge Heftler-Louiche, founded Parfums Christian Dior before passing on its direction to Frédéric’s mother. Frédéric himself now represents the third generation of perfume specialists in his family and has become a world authority on perfume making.
Frédéric acquired an extensive knowledge of raw materials and olfactory balance at the prestigious perfume laboratory Roure Bertrand Dupont, where he also befriended the leading perfumers of the industry and worked with them for over 25 years.
With a vision to revive what perfumery used to be, a trade in which a perfume is the result of total creative freedom, liberated from the pressure of marketing strategies and deadlines, Frédéric had the ambition to restore quality and wished to celebrate perfumers as artists by selling their fragrances under their own names. From this vision was born the idea of a publishing house for perfume, where perfumes are created and published as unique works of art.
As an editor-figure to his perfumers, always pushing them to transcend their creative limits, his vision of perfumery is absolute: its standard of quality must remain uncompromised, and its creativity, unbiased. Having grown up in a family of perfumers to whom fragrance was an expression of character and individual elegance, Frédéric’s vision of perfume is not only extensive, but also personal.More from Frederic Malle
