Dries Van Noten par Frederic Malle was the first in a series of portraits of designers and brands in the Editions de Parfums collection.
Inspired by the designs and world of Dries Van Noten, Bruno Jovanovic created this perfume based around Mysore Sandalwood, an opening of bergamot and lemon gives lift and makes way to saffron, jasmin and patchouli, with a soft, sweet edge given by vanilla, sacrasol, and peru balsam.

His mission was to bring inspiration back to the ‘hidden heart’ of perfumery: commissioning the perfumers to move away from the constraints and demands of today’s mass market and encouraging them to create scents without restriction, from the outer limits of their imagination.
These highly unusual and imaginative fragrances herald a new purity and style in the world of fragrance; rare and precious ingredients are combined in stunning collectors pieces, each one a triumph of the perfumer’s art.
