British Family Perfumers Since 1730

Malmaison Encore

May 3, 2013

Our perfumer, Shelagh Foyle, shares with us her inspiration behind the latest 'By Request' fragrance.
Since the introduction of the By Request service one fragrance has been requested more than any other – Malmaison.

Today the palette of ingredients available to the perfumer no longer permits the fragrance to be re-instated.

I have to admit to being a fervent admirer of the original, intensely carnation accord at its heart. So, it was with some trepidation that I sought to recapture the spirit and emotions that this fragrance embodied.

After several trials and with the essential guidance of fellow Malmaison advocates and the Floris family I am delighted to announce the arrival of: Malmaison Encore, with top notes of bergamot, black pepper and cardamom, heart notes of clove, nutmeg, rose and ylang ylang, and base notes of amber, cedarwood, frankincense, heliotrope, tonka bean and vanilla.

A fragrance for today built on memories of the past.

 

Oscar Wilde“Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of colour in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play... I tell you, that it is on things like these that our lives depend. ”

― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
