Frédéric Malle Music for a While by Carlos Benaïm – Sample

Allure irrésistible.

At a party on Paris’ rive gauche, a woman’s fur coat is lifted from her bare shoulders, exposing her neck to the candlelight. Aware of many eyes upon her, she pauses, smiling to herself, before emerging like a conqueror from the shadows.

A sensuous body of lavender is warmed by patchouli, amber and vanilla, and transformed by notes of pineapple and mandarin.

The music is in the detail.

Perfume top notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Bergamot
Perfume middle note: Lavender
Perfume base notes: Patchouli, Labdanum, Vanilla Tinted by a touch of Pineapple

Carlos Benaïm is considered to be America’s greatest perfumer. As the author of the legendary perfume Polo Ralph Lauren and of many other beloved classics, he owes his success to a great intellectual curiosity that has always pushed him to embrace a world beyond the boundaries of perfume making. At Frédéric Malle’s request, Carlos created home fragrances for the first time; some of the best the industry has ever seen.

He discovered perfumery as a child through his father, who was a pharmacist in Morocco and had a passion for essential oil extractions. “Every summer, Carlos is fond of saying, “my father and I would drive our Jeep through the countryside, in and out of picking and distillation spots, and I would feel his enthusiasm intensifying.” Carlos later acquired a deep knowledge of perfume composition under the tutelage of the renowned American perfumer Ernest Shiftan.
