Frédéric Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire by Dominique Ropion
The essence of an extraordinarily charming man. One who is magnetic without even seeming to try: every gesture infused with a sense of humor and sophistication. Not a rugged, shouting masculinity, but an irresistible whisper.
A charismatic field of woods: an unprecedented dose of Haitian vetiver woven with sandalwood, cedar and cashmeran. Bound to the skin by oak moss and musk, and lifted by pink pepper, bergamot and bitter orange in a whiff of captivating freshness.
Charm in a bottle.

Dominique Ropion is a daring perfectionist, a true inventor. The risks he takes are invariably accompanied by a relentless pursuit of exact olfactory balance and flawless composition. His perfumes are like great architectural feats: in the same way that a bridge, whose seemingly miraculous suspension of weight is in fact a harnessing of counteracting forces, Dominique often balances excessive doses of powerful ingredients with meticulously-measured, subtler accords, until the composition holds up on its own. A good perfume, he likes to say, must always appear obvious.
