Frédéric Malle – Candle – Chez Monsieur
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.
“One of my assessments when working on scents for the home was that unlike traditional perfumes for people, home fragrances aren’t and shouldn’t be sexy. The scent of a men’s den is a slight exception to this rule, as one feels, when smelling it, the presence of its proprietor amongst the precious woods, tobacco and books. Spending time in my grandfather’s reading room as a child left a particular taste for this type of environment.”
