Imagine you have to recommend one single perfume house to a new Perfumista to start, which one would it be?
Which line offers the greatest variety?
Which house has a good representative of every perfume category?
Which house has great perfumers at work who are free to create with excellent materials?
One line that offers variety and isn’t repeating itself? Hmmm, I think I’ll have to go with Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle. Malle executes his idea of being an editor of a perfume publishing house very well, he treats his authors well and he releases works of art that fit in with his entire catalogue. You’ll find something of every genre at Malle.
A few Malle perfumes are reviewed here.
Honorable mentions go to Parfum d’Empire, Parfumerie Générale and Ormonde Jayne.
What do you think? Which perfume house wins the price for “best edited line”?
