Frederic Malle Acne Studios was created in collaboration with Acne Studios. Suzy Le Helley created this fragrance with notes of aldehydes, rose, peach, vanilla, sandalwood and musk. This is a very aldehydic-forward fragrance, so if that is not something you love, tread with caution! Frederic Malle Acne Studios is an EDP, eau de parfum.

From the brand - "Acne Studios by Frédéric Malle is an Eau de Parfum with a vibrant, magnetic and radical profile. It is an intense thrill of fresh aldehydes, concealed by the sweetness of flowers, peach and vanilla, warmed by creamy sandalwood and white musk." 

Reviews of Frederic Malle Acne Studios

Fragrantica - "Brilliant! Smooth butter cream, freshly washed hands, warm laundry, and extraordinary longevity."

Fragrantica - "I really like this. The aldehydes jump out immediately with a piercing, almost sour brightness that reminds me of hot steam. Immediately I think "laundry soap" but this is an embellished, fantasy-like vision of that. I'm not that familiar with a lot of soft, aldehydic women's perfumes from the likes of Chanel (probably more similarities there), but it reminds me a bit of Heeley's Cardinal with it's sharp aldehyde opening and clean linen accord. Here the effect is better and even more nose-tingling, modern, and comforting. It's like putting a wool scarf up to your nostrils and feeling the warm, freshly laundered fabric hit your nose. The effect has a texture to it that feels fuzzy, radiant, and slightly mineralic with a fruity undertone. The incense is doing a lot here, and I pick up a subtle, natural smoky quality hidden inside. It's somewhat nostalgic like the embrace of a well-worn piece of clothing that's never seen dirt. Both cozy but summer-appropriate as it feels like the sun is breathing warmth into a set of linens hung out to dry. That hyper-focus and elevation of something rather mundane is Frederic Malle showing his skill."

Fragrantica - "The fragrance is perhaps traveling down a linear path, but there are a few swerves here and there - the fragrance feels fluid instead of static. It retains interest - I keep wanting to discern the scent subtleties. The deep dry-down brining incensed sandalwood rubbed over with a vanilla balm - not sweet, not different, just a continual smoothing of the opening."

Fragrantica - "This perfume is very emotional for me. It's beautiful, clean, and fresh, yet somehow slightly dirty from floral notes. It's airy, long-lasting, and has excellent projection. Aldehydes, musk, peach, orange blossom, sandalwood, and a hint of frankincense. Like the most beautiful and potent fabric softener. Sounds simple - but it's not. It partly reminds me of Superstitious because of the aldehydes, but they are still completely different. Acne Studios is not sour, it's much easier to wear... The drydown reminds me of CDG - Concrete, probably because of the sandalwood... Perfection!"
