FREDERIC MALLE Carnal Flower Hair Mist 100ml
The intoxicating scent of Frédéric Malle’s Carnal Flower, Dominique Ropion’s revolutionary perfume, features an overdose of natural tuberose, becoming a deliciously fragrant hair mist. Providing delicate freshness, this airy formula infuses your hair with perfume without weighing it down.
If nature offers olfactive clashes, tuberose is probably the best example of these. These pretty flowers exude an almost carnal smell, superimposing in a quasi-miraculous way flower-shop freshness, camphorous violence – spicy and animalic – and milky sweetness. This mysterious equilibrium has always fascinated perfumers. Frédéric Malle’s Carnal took perfumer Dominique Ropion eighteen months to perfect and create a modern version of that theme.
Dominique Ropion trained at the legendary Roure Bertrand Dupont laboratory before going to work with Jean-Louis Sieuzac, one of the perfumery world’s great technicians. What makes Ropion’s work special is the mix of precision and freedom, and his quest to create new, harmonious accords by pairing ingredients that are polar opposites. An adventurer who abandons himself to instinct, Dominique Ropion is also extremely rigorous in the final stages of the formulation of each of his fragrances.
