Inspired by Patrick Süskind’s best-selling novel, the Perfume presentation case (Thierry Mugler Parfums) is an exercise in scent’s limitless expressions—from the nostalgic to the sweet to the repellent. Loosely following the arc of Süskind’s story line, Les Christophes (as the creators are known) employed all manner of novel ingredients and combinations to tell an olfactive tale in 15 parts.


With a nod to its namesake, this fragrance incorporates all manner of sweet and dairy elements, aiming for a milky, whipped cream effect, coupled with a buttery-baked pyrazine.
