This 2012 fall, Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle will launch from mid-October three limited-edition coffrets in the Coffret Collection to allow connoisseurs to sample part of or all of their range of perfumes penned by some of the most interesting signatures in the world of the art of fragrance...
While Frédéric Malle is known for having worked his best at ensuring that perfume connoisseurs have a particularly satisfying experience in his boutiques by designing smell columns and working with highly-trained sales assistants, whom he likes to underline can go as far as writing simple perfume formulas, he says that he enjoys the idea of being able to offer the whole boutique in a box.
Their full fine perfumery collection, excluding home fragrances, consists of 18 works. While their quality is lauded, their prices make them not so easily accessible.
This is an opportunity to play at home with perfumes that might not necessarily come first on your list of preferences, and have a chance to go beyond easy inclinations. Such flexibility and availability opens up sometimes the space for making a 180 degrees turnaround about a perfume as you push the limits of your own taste.
Three versions of the coffrets will be available, filled with 5 ml spray bottles and cards reproducing the art of Konstantin Kakanias which appeared in the book by Frédéric Malle, On Perfume Making.
