French Lover by Frederic Malle, French Lover is a woody, aromatic fragrance that was designed for me. It was released in 2007.
This fragrance features top notes of galbanum and spices. Its middle notes consist of incense, cedar, and angelica. Its base contains the notes of oakmoss, vetiver, and white musk. The nose behind this fragrance is Pierre Bourdon. It has moderate sillage and is long-lasting.
The brand that released this fragrance is Frederic Malle. He is a niche fragrance designer that was born in Paris, France in 1962. He was born into the fragrance industry, as his grandfather, Serge Heftler, founded Christian Dior Perfumes, and his mother worked as an art director for that perfume house as well.
He began his own journey into the perfume industry in 1986 when he accepted a position at a perfume lab. The fragrances in this brand are unique because they were created by top perfumers with complete freedom, and credit is given directly to those perfumers as well.
