In a groundbreaking fusion of fashion, perfumery, and art, Acne Studios and Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle have joined forces to introduce a scent that embodies the essence of their shared creative vision. Renowned for their bold and unconventional approach to design, both brands have set out to redefine aesthetics by drawing inspiration from various artistic realms, including photography, architecture, and culture.

The brainchild of Frédéric Malle and Jonny Johansson, the founder and creative director of Acne Studios, this collaboration marks a departure from traditional norms in both fashion and fragrance industries. With a commitment to absolute creative freedom and a multidisciplinary vision, the duo has unveiled a groundbreaking perfume: Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle.

Since its inception in 1996, Acne Studios has been at the forefront of multidisciplinary creativity, challenging conventions and redefining contemporary fashion. Jonny Johansson, a self-taught designer with a background in music and art, brings a unique perspective to the brand, infusing each collection with a sense of experimentation and innovation. From its iconic denim styles to its meticulously crafted clothing and accessories, Acne Studios embodies a philosophy where functionality meets eclecticism, resulting in timeless and refined pieces that resonate with a global audience. Established in 2000, Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle has been a trailblazer in the world of perfumery, dedicated to showcasing the creativity of master perfumers without any constraints. With over three decades of experience in the industry, Frédéric Malle has cultivated a reputation for excellence, pushing boundaries and reimagining classic fragrances for the modern era. Each collaboration with perfumers results in a masterpiece, reflecting Malle's commitment to celebrating creativity and innovation At the heart of the collaboration lies the expertise of perfumer Suzy Le Helley, whose talent and creativity have earned her acclaim in the fragrance industry. Trained at prestigious perfumery schools in France and Germany, Le Helley brings a unique blend of botanical knowledge and synthetic expertise to her craft. Inspired by nature and guided by her passion for botany, she creates perfumes that resonate with clarity and emotion, each one a testament to her mastery of the art form.

The resulting perfume is a testament to the creative synergy between Acne Studios and Frédéric Malle. Infused with aldehydes, floral notes, and hints of incense, the fragrance evokes a sense of timeless elegance and modernity. From its initial crystalline breath to its soft and comforting undertones, the perfume captures the essence of Acne Studios' daring irreverence and Frédéric Malle's commitment to excellence.
