Eau de Magnolia
This time the conversation between Frédéric Malle and Carlos Benaïm revolved around the headspace
analysis of the magnolia and the fact that this flower is closer to an Eau de Cologne
than to a classic flower. Carlos then suggested magnifying the citric balance of the magnolia to enhance the Eau de Cologne
effect and to add a woody vibration to give it depth and sensuality. The result is a fresh chypre
, an extraordinarily transparent and very natural smelling note, enlivened by a dark base (vetiver, patchouli) that conveys a touch of mystery. A timeless summer perfume.
