L'eau D'hiver by Frederic Malle Perfume. L'eau D'hiver is a warm, comforting perfume that was released in 2003.
It was created by Jean-Claude Ellena, who is known for his minimalist perfumes that include few ingredients. This scent features a top note of bergamot along with base notes of hawthorn, heliotrope, and iris.
Ellena is one of 12 perfumers in Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, a group that also includes Edmond Roudnitska, Carlos Benaïm, and Sophia Grojsman. After growing up in the
fragrance industry, Malle founded this publishing house to give noses the freedom they don’t get from other companies. Instead of focusing on a specific brand image or retail strategy, this perfume house emphasizes the art of perfume making. Malle, who calls himself a perfume editor, also provides access to the best raw materials in the world and even lets the noses put their names on their perfume bottles. The house has since expanded to include body products and scented candles.
