DRIES VAN NOTEN – FREDERIC MALLE
An enveloping warmth. First and foremost a creative response to designer Dries Van Noten’s Flemish roots.
Belgium’s stark winter call for domestic warmth, while its history, as one of the great stages for the trade of precious raw materials, calls for a rich amalgam of textures and motifs: tea by the fire, speculoos biscuits and Indian spices inspired this comforting blend of milky sandalwood, vanilla, saffron, and sacrasol, for a lasting effect of exotic, buttery warmth. Worn like a couture winter coat.
Top note: bergamot
