DUBAI, OCTOBER 23, 2014 - Perfume connoisseur Frederic Malle’s concept for his collection Editions de Parfums has been to assemble some of the greatest noses in the industry to establish a publishing house of fragrance featuring a new stable of outspoken and incredibly creative authors. This October, Bloomingdale’s – Dubai launches the new Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle counter, which features the original series of fragrances from Editions de Parfums in addition to an exclusive Oud blend entitled The Night by Dominique Ropion.
The Night is Dominique’s first composition for Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle that speaks the language of Middle Eastern per¬fume. “My desire to seek out true Oriental scents has driven me to conduct numerous trips to the Middle East over the years, as well as to open an Editions de Parfums in Dubaï,” says Malle.
“Last year it was in this invigorating Arabic jewel of a city that Dominique Ropion and I met to continue our studies, in hopes of finding inspiration for our new collaboration. After returning from Dubaï, Dominique and I ex¬perimented thoroughly with the ideas we had gathered on our trip: together we worked to unravel the exotic beauty of the Orient, one scent at a time.”
Unlike perfumes called Oud which contain at best a trace of this precious raw material, if any, The Night is built on an unprecedented proportion of Oud from India which Domi¬nique has mixed with a generous amount of Turkish Rose and Amber.
Without question the perfume with the larg¬est amount of natural Oud, The Night has been mixed by Mr. Ropion in accordance with his extraordinary refinement and his encyclo¬pedic technical knowledge. The scent is an exact reflection of The Night’s unparalleled richness.
Applying the slogan, “Fragrance without compromise” to his brand ethos, Frederic Malle’s collection of more than twenty exceptional perfumes – each of which bears the name of the creator on the bottle – have been formulated by those whom Malle considers to be the top ‘noses’ in the world. When Malle started the fragrance line in 2000, his mission was to bring inspiration back to the ‘hidden heart’ of perfumery; commissioning the perfumers to move away from the constraints and demands of today’s mass market and encouraging them to create scents without restriction, from the outer limits of their imagination. Edmond Roudnitska, Jean-Claude Ellena, Maurice Roucel, Dominique Ropion and Pierre Bourdon are some of the renowned perfumers whose works appear in the Editions de Parfums line.
The Editions de Parfums line features highly sophisticated and imaginative fragrances heralding a new purity and style in the world of fragrance. Rare and precious ingredients are combined in stunning collectors’ pieces, each one a triumph of the perfumer’s art.
