Fräulein Crush: Frédéric Malle Perfume ‘Uncut Gem’
Starting into autumn with a classical more is more: Frédéric Malle and Maurice Roucel remain true to this motto in the world of perfumes. “Uncut Gem” is bursting with extravagance and elan, playing with the scents of masculinity while creating something irresistible. Frédéric Malle himself describes it as “an almost too obvious, in-your-face cologne.” Who are the masterminds behind this explosion of scents? Maurice Roucel is considered a legend in the world of fragrances. After five years of persuasion he agreed to create a cologne with Frédéric Malle, who stands for creative freedom, chic and sophistication.
The combination of both works has created a fusion of contrasts: clear, spicy top notes of ginger, bergamot, mandarin, angelica root and nutmeg will immerse your sense of smell.
What unites both is that they are uncompromising, bold, technically brilliant and at the same time exude warm charm. Frédéric Malle himself describes Maurice Roucel as following: “He seems rough at first glance, but that’s a conscious choice. He’s a force: intellectually incredibly refined and full of humor and love for people.” You can literally feel all of this when the scent of “Uncut Gem” spreads across your skin. Straightforward and enigmatic all at one creates a leathery fragrance fire. Raw sex appeal meets lingering subtlety. Sensitive, classic, raw and fresh at the same time: Dominating the game of opposites.
