Have you ever wanted to know the go behind the scenes and see how your favourite scent was made? Step into our Perfumeria! MECCAversity is taking you inside the ‘no-limits’ world of fine fragrance with one of the world’s most acclaimed perfume maisons: Editions De Parfums By Frédéric Malle.

About this course:

Join Editions de Parfums By Frédéric Malle’s international trainer, Pierre Bobo, as we deep dive into how the brand’s iconic fragrances are created – and how to find your own signature scent.

This lesson will immerse you in the full fragrance journey, from concept to bottle – you’ll see how art, inspiration and advanced chemistry combine in the uniquely ‘Frédéric Malle’ approach to scent creation.

By watching this video, you’ll discover:

  1. Frédéric Malle’s fragrance philosophy and the story behind the brand.
  2. How expert ‘nose’ Dominque Ropion was able to capture the three distinct elements of tuberose when he created the legendary Carnal Flower EDP
  3. The story of the iconic Portrait of a Lady EDP and how Dominique Ropion infused the opulent scent with more than 400 roses in each bottle.
  4. How Maurice Roucel redefined the category of musk perfumes with Musc Ravageur EDP by using science to recreate scents previously only found in nature.
