Carnal Flower After Sun Balm 150ml
Created by perfumer Dominique Ropion in 2005, Carnal Flower revolutionised tuberose perfume. Exceptionally modern, though true to its bloom, Carnal Flower contains the greatest amount of natural Indian tuberose absolute of any perfume in the industry. True to its pledge of always offering the best, Frédéric Malle mixed this extraordinarily precious fragrance into an extremely hydrating, fresh feeling after-sun balm. Dominique Ropion’s art now meets high-tech body care.
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 Flower Eau De Parfum 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.
