A peek into the world of Frédéric Malle

Odyssey of a Perfumer: Dominique Ropion

Frédéric Malle makes no secret of his passion for the “Seventh Art,” and knows how to bring this passion into his job as a perfume publisher. Building close long-term working relationships with his authors, he speaks with precision about each one’s particular approach to composition. So when he compares Dominique Ropion, one of his star perfumers, to Stanley Kubrick, one of the greatest American directors of the twentieth century, our curiosity is obviously aroused.
