Geranium Pour Monsieur - Frederic Malle
A tenacious freshness characterizes Géranium pour Monsieur. Its composition offers an alternative to the fragrances of the classic aromatic fern olfactory family. A heart of Chinese geranium, notes of mint and aniseed, spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves on an enveloping base of sandalwood and musks are the main actors of this new genre. Rare raw materials such as frankincense resinoid or benzoin add a special refinement to this impression of clarity and freshness.
The perfumer: Dominique Ropion trained at the legendary Roure Bertrand Dupont laboratory in Grasse, before working with Jean-Louis Sieuzac, one of the greatest technicians in perfumery. Today he is IFF's leading perfumer and his work is distinguished by a mix of precision and freedom and by the constant search for new and harmonious accords which arise from the combination of opposing ingredients. Adventurous and instinctive in his creative phase, he is also extremely rigorous in the final stages of the formulation of each of his fragrances.
