A classic perfume that keeps its sensuous femininity enclosed in a sober shape. A concealed satin lining of iris, musk and tonka bean is trimmed by cool, synthetic aldehydes for an aura of serene formality. Vetiver introduces a further quality of crisp chic, while decorative notes of rose, violet and ylang-ylang remind a stranger to see the woman beyond the surface.

As Edmond Roudnitska’s only student, Pierre Bourdon inherited his rigorous perfume technique. He also learned from him that perfumes should be created as works of art. With this in mind, Pierre went on to revolutionize men’s perfumery in the 1980s with Cool Water for Davidoff. That was when he met Frédéric Malle. Having realized that they shared the same vision of perfume making, the two became like family to one another. It was obvious to Frédéric Malle, when he created Editions de Parfums, that Pierre Bourdon should compose its first perfume, Iris Poudre.
The two brothers in arms had grown up under the same spell of Dior Parfums, where their parents both had established careers. After graduating from the Paris Institute of Political Studies, the childhood spell caught up with Pierre and, like Frédéric Malle, he enrolled at Roure Bertrand Dupont.
Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is a publishing house for the industry’s very best Perfume Designers. Its goal is to push the limits of perfume creation and elevate perfumery to a whole new artistic level.
As a perfume expert, Mr. Malle handpicks perfumers whose work is changing the face of the industry. As their editor, he guides them individually through their creative process to ensure that they are always transcending their limits. Together, they create works of art that represent the best of each olfactive category: the great classics of tomorrow.
