Frédéric Malle and Alber Elbaz launch Superstitious

The perfumer and designer’s dynamic new scent

The savant of French niche perfumery Frédéric Malle has collaborated with the former creative director of Lanvin Alber Elbaz. Their fragrance Superstitious is a mix of the most luxurious raw materials: essence of Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine, velvety peach and apricot skin, labdanum resinoid, sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, patchouli and musk.

Speaking before the fragrance’s launch, Malle said, “In a world where life seems programmed, organised and logical, Alber sees the irrational – neglected everywhere we are and in everything we do – as essential. Beyond words, images and reason, we must let ourselves be guided by a sixth sense – by our superstitions – free from judgment and unsuppressed. We must let ourselves go. We must trust our instincts.” This is the leading principle of Superstitious.
