Frédéric Malle was born into a French family of industrialists, artists and perfumers. His uncle, Louis Malle, was a celebrated film director. His grandfather, Serge Hefler-Louiche, was the founder of Parfums Christian Dior and an emblem of France’s perfume legacy; Frédéric’s mother presided over this department for the duration of her career. Frédéric himself represents the third generation of perfume specialists in his family and is a world authority on perfume making.
Frédéric Malle’s early exposure to a dialogue between the creative and business worlds led him to study Art History and Economics at New York University. After a brief career in advertising, he joined the prestigious perfume laboratory Roure Bertrand Dupont in 1988, where he befriended the leading perfumers of the industry. He worked with them for over 25 years, acquiring an extensive knowledge of raw materials and olfactory balance.
Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is the only perfume brand in the industry to uphold the skill of its perfumers, and the quality of the raw materials they use, as their primary concern and source of pride. The confluence of these two factors produces an extraordinary result: a brand of uncompromised quality and unbiased creativity.
