Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
Portrait of A Lady Hair Mist
About the product:
If a perfume is a portrait of the woman who wears it, here is one that reveals her inherent sophistication, streaming, like soft music, from the folds of her dress. An exuberant dose of Turkish rose rests on a bed of patchouli heart imbued with sandalwood and frankincense. An accord of clove, blackcurrant and raspberry binds the perfume together for a final movement of symphonic femininity.
Heart: Blackcurrant, raspberry, clove
Base: Patchouli, sandalwood, frankincense
About the perfumer:
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.
