Portrait Of A Lady Eau De Parfum 30ml
Frédéric Malle’s Portrait Of A Lady Eau De Parfum is elegance personified. At once timeless and resonant with today, here is a scent that speaks of innate sophistication. Charm that emanates from within, boldly depicted without; an expressive portrayal of modern grace. At the fore, an exuberant dose of Turkish rose — 400 flowers per 100ml bottle, no less. Beneath, a bed of patchouli heart imbued with sandalwood and frankincense. An accord of clove, blackcurrant and raspberry binds the perfume together for a final characterful brushstroke.
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.
Combining beauty, simplicity and convenience, the 30ml spray offers Frédéric Malle’s signature uncompromising perfume in a compact size whilst drawing aesthetic inspiration from 20th century conceptual art and modernist design. In the spirit of Bauhaus, form follows function: a simple black cylinder in high shine polyethylene plastic with a matte anodised metal centre and magnetic cap. A most practical host for perfumes, both at home and on the go.

How to Use
Frédéric Malle believes people should spray perfume where they wish to do so. Some people wear them on their neck or under their wrist, while others prefer to splash or spray fragrances on their chest. Layering across scents is not recommended as our perfumes are each an olfactive work of art, crafted to stand alone and apart.
