Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
Architects & Firms
Jakob + MacFarlane’s new 260-square-foot Frédéric Malle perfume boutique in Paris’s Marais district reflects an ambience that is as majestic as it is aromatic. The fragrance collection is showcased along a series of rippling, interwoven timber display units, suspended and jutting out from the mirrored-stainless-steel ceiling and walls. In concert with the shop’s metallic surfaces, the glowing sculptural elements, backed by translucent panels lit from behind by LEDs, appear to float, carrying an endless array of scented treasures.
