Portrait of a Lady

Eau De Parfum by Frederic Malle.


Dark roses. Named after the 1881 novel by Henry James, the perfume deals with rose and spices in a way that varies between the oriental and chypre, with patchouli dominating the heart of the composition. A modern and elegant expression of the Victorian novel’s heroine Isabel Archer, her fate and the quest for freedom. Mystical and intense.
