Young Frédéric Malle was born to be a perfumer. After all, for decades his family has been involved in the creation of best-selling Christian Dior perfumes. In consultation with interior designer Andrée Putman, Malle recently opened his own chic perfumery, Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, with a sleek, modern feel. Malle sells his scents exclusively in this quietly seductive setting—from the fresh and happy En Passant, a modern interpretation of white lilac bouquets, to his classic Le Parfum de Thérèse, a heady combination of jasmine, pepper, plum, and mandarin orange. The perfume is refrigerated to preserve its quality. $60-$110. 37 Rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris, France; 33-1-42-22-77-22.
