The Moon by Frédéric Malle: A New Fragrance For Women And Men 2019

📷 The Moon exudes a warm, opulent quality, rose, oud and frankincense meet a surprising abundance of ripe red berries.

The Moon by Frédéric Malle is a Oriental Floral fragrance for women and men launched in 2019. The nose behind this fragrance is Julien Rasquinet.   

The moon plays a leading role in conducting the rhythm of life in the Middle East, her ethereal appearance hailing the beginning and end of all festivity. Yet in Arabic, invoking the moon is also an allusion to romance — ‘my moon’; an adoringly grandiose term for one’s beloved that speaks of beauty and eternal devotion.

Exuding a warm, opulent quality, rose, oud and frankincense meet a surprising abundance of ripe red berries. In subtle evocation of the fruit-flavored shisha enjoyed across the region, the profusion of redcurrant and raspberry notes adds sweetness and color. A potent new moon.

Notes:  Violet, rose, raspberry, agarwood (oud), olibanum, rose oud, red berries, red currant, patchouli, sandalwood and amber.

The fragrance is available as a 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

The Perfumer: Julien Rasquinet

 📷 Frédéric Malle, who had heard of Rasquinet’s great talent, knew that he had found a new perfumer for Editions de Parfums, the minute he smelled what was to become The Moon.

Julien Rasquinet’s life took a decisive turn when his father met nose extraordinaire Pierre Bourdon, by accident in an airport. Rasquinet who didn’t know anything about perfumery beyond his own passion for it, called Bourdon, who decided to take him instead of thousands of other candidates to be his last student, and bare his legacy, as Edmond Roudnitska had done with him. Call it perfumer’s intuition.

Upon completing his training, Julien Rasquinet created his own fragrance house in Normandy and was working in Dubaï for IFF four years later. He has been creating beautifully innovative Middle Eastern perfumes ever since. Frédéric Malle, who had heard of Rasquinet’s great talent from his friend Pierre Bourdon, has been observing him since that time. He knew that he had found a new perfumer for Editions de Parfums, the minute he smelled what was to become The Moon.
