Michel Roudnitska comes from a unique fragrance heritage. The co-manager of Art et Parfum carries on his father Edmond’s legacy as an eternally curious perfumer and artist. In 2000, Roudnitska launched Noir Epices (Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle) in tandem with Parfum de Thérèse, his father’s posthumous olfactive tribute to his wife. In the years since, Roudnitska has formulated a range of niche scents, including Amoureuse (Parfums DelRae) and Ellie (Ellie D).
