Acne Studios and Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle meet at the intersection of fashion, perfumery and art. Driven since their inception by the ambition to create a radically new aesthetic, both houses draw their essence from photography, architecture, culture and design, and apply those creative principles to everything from boutiques to clothing, fragrances to bottles. Frédéric Malle and Jonny Johansson, founder, and creative director of Acne Studios, have always chosen to explore alternative paths, with a multidisciplinary vision of their art, and a steadfast commitment to the principle of absolute creative freedom. This common approach has given rise to a unique collaboration: Acne Studios par Frédéric Malle.

The perfume

Frédéric Malle put Acne Studios in a bottle. A neoclassical perfume with an irreverent twist; cool yet charming; new yet familiar; rough yet comfortable; innocent yet magnetic.

For this special collaboration, Frédéric asked perfume prodigy Suzy Le Helley to author a powerful manifesto.

The composition is as such: The intense thrill of aldehydes is matched by the softness of the floral notes; rose, violet and a touch of orange blossom; a hint of incense; a striking contrast with vanilla, alongside creamy sandalwood, and a note of peach skin. This softness caresses the skin like a comforting mohair sweater thanks to the graceful note of white musk.


Éditions de Parfums Frédéric Malle elevates perfumery to an art where the world’s greatest perfumers sign their own olfactive masterpieces.

A collection born from an uncompromising creative vision, unique craft, and exceptional raw materials, offering the most eclectic range of perfumes with the most diverse personalities and the opportunity to find a perfume that expresses your singularity.
