"You Have To Be More Direct" - An Interview With Carlos Benaïm

"Frederic Malle is much more directive. But he doesn't tell you what to do. I would sit with him and he would give ideas. Sometimes I agreed with his ideas, sometimes I didn't. We experimented a lot, we tried a million things. The work was more... how can I say?... checked by Frederic, than in the case of Dunhill. Both types of processes are interesting. The process of Frederic Malle is very exacting and very thorough... and a true process."
