Check out the new Editions De Parfums Frédéric Malle fragrance

The Frédéric Malle brand has always been synonymous with chic. While Malle gives total creative freedom to his collaborators, he sees it as his job as a publisher to maintain a certain overarching sensibility, which has historically been highly refined. Yet innovation, reinvention, and interpretation is his raison d'être. Hence his quest for what he describes as "an almost-too-obvious, in-your-face cologne": a scent that plays with the tired codes of masculinity while extracting their telluric force to make something beautiful and irresistible. Uncut Gem walks up to the line of good taste, ties it into a lasso, and casually ropes a bucking bronco.

Maurice Roucel is one of Malle's first collaborators, a good friend, and the author of several of his most iconic scents, including Musc Ravageur. And for years, Malle had been intrigued by Roucel's own signature scent, a unique blend he'd created in the lab for his own use. technically brilliant, and filled with warm charm. After five years of persuasion, Roucel agreed to work with Malle to create the cologne that would become Uncut Gem.
