Anyone who loves fragrance knows Frédéric Malle. If that describes you or someone on your list, then here is the perfect gift: a limited-edition set of Malle’s fragrances celebrating 15-years in the business. Just looking at the exquisitely boxed set, which comes in two sizing options of either ten ($365) or twenty ($590; seen at left) 10-milliliter sprays, you can appreciate Malle’s unique trek to becoming an industry disruptor. Indeed, with a grandfather who founded Parfums Christian Dior, Frederic Malle has perhaps the genetic right to be called a fragrance industry visionary. After serving as a consultant for Hermes and Christian Lacroix fragrances, Malle founded his own company, Editions de Parfums, in 2000. And the company was a groundbreaking one: He hired the world’s greatest noses to compose fragrances sold under their own names. Never before had a parfum’s creator been seen on the bottle.
Featuring unforgettable editions such as Vétiver Extraordinaire, Carnal Flower, Géranium pour Monsieur, and Portrait of a Lady, the coffrets also come with a book designed by American artist Phillip Low that reveals the origin story for each scent—inviting those who love fragrance to get to know Frédéric Malle all the better.
