Frédéric Malle – Candle – Notre Dame
Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
In staying true to their goal of creating uncompromised fragrances, Frédéric Malle developed a collection of scented candles, adapting the leading principles of fine perfumery to wax.
About Notre Dame: “Of my extremely short career as an altar boy in Paris I only remember the giggles of my friends in the audience and the scent of incense. The dry warmth of the fumes merges with the damp coolness of the stone to generate this uniquely serene atmosphere. From his lab in New York City, Bruno Jovanovic managed to overcome the technical difficulty that this specific scent entails – particularly that of burning incense, a resin, with a wick – and to reproduce this ecclesiastic atmosphere.”
