Created by champion perfumer Frédéric Malle and Jonny Johansson, founder and creative director of Acne Studios, the two powerhouses come together for the Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle fragrance, as the scent reimagines a neoclassical perfume. Acne Studios and Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle meet at the intersection of fashion, perfumery, and art in an ode to both houses’ ambition to create radically new aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from photography, architecture, culture, and design, Acne Studios and Frédéric Malle have applied these creative principles to everything from boutiques to bottles, and now, to Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle.

A perfect nod to the great classics of yesterday while reimagining the future, Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle combines aldehydes, rose violet, and a touch of orange blossom with vanilla, peach accords, notes of sandalwood, a sea of musks, and a touch of frankincense for a unique, eccentric elegance that creates a vibrant, comforting, magnetic and radical fragrance.

Aldehydes build the base of Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle. The first thrilling breath that softens into long-term radiance is matched by the subtlety of floral notes. Hints of rose and violet create a sense of classicism, supported by the luminosity of orange blossom. At the heart of Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle comes a hint of incense, emerging from the floral arrangement and adding a mineral freshness that echoes the aldehyde. Vanilla adds an understated yet striking contrast paired with creamy sandalwood, a note of peach and a touch of white musk to complete the soul of Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle.

Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle is now available at, Frédéric Malle Boutiques, and Acne Studio Boutiques.
