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.
