Frederic Malle Superstitious was launched in 2017. An aldehydic floral created by Dominique Ropion, it features notes of jasmine, rose, peach, amber, incense, vetiver and patchouli. Frederic Malle Superstitious was a collaboration with fashion designer Alber Elbaz (formerly of Lanvin).
Malle told British Vogue - "You can take it in two different ways. You could take it like a great classic — an understated luxury, that comes like a second skin. The fire under the ice, like a Hitchcock character. But because it’s a type of perfumery that hasn’t been done for such a long time, people can see it very modern at the same time, but with a wave to the past. I think much younger people could see it as very novel — for them it’s like when you take an old brooch and wear it on a jeans jacket."
From Now Smell This - "Superstitious has a classic structure, starting with top notes zinging with bergamot and tart with green notes. It’s as fizzy as a shaken Fresca, even as its jasmine, peach and rose heart surfaces. Sometimes, the jasmine wafts a hint of funk. The peach is dry, not Bellini-juicy. The fizz persists."
