Eau De Magnolia Perfume by Frederic Malle, Eau de Magnolia opens with the citrusy notes of Calabrian bergamot. Its fresh crispness offers a bold tanginess that’s an appealing scent for both men and women.
As the mid-tones settle in, you become aware of an earthy quality that stabilizes the citrus. That’s the vetiver, magnolia, and patchouli adding their depth. The final base notes of amber, moss, and cedar complete the package with a dark, mysterious undertone that offers a natural sensuality.
Frederic Malle worked with Carlos Benaim to launch their uniquely subtle fragrance in 2014. The bold red packaging is matched by the straightforward lines in the lettering. The bottle itself, with its understated silhouette and clean presentation of the perfume, belies the mystery that gradually unfolds with each layer of scent.
