Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is a French Perfumery located in a historic building in the Marais at rue des Francs Bourgeois in Paris.
Jakob + MacFarlane Architects designed the interior elements of this boutique perfume store. The fit-out features interlocking timber fittings which are slotted together to form sculptural shelves, tables, and display cases. The flooring, walls, and ceiling, have been finished with a mirrored surface which causes a series of reflections and creates an optical illusion that display units are levitating.

The principal partners are Brendan MacFarlane who hails from Christchurch, New Zealand and who combines his architectural pursuits with a teaching position at Harvard University and Dominique Jakob, a Parisienne who also teaches at The Special School of Architecture of Paris and the Paris-Villemin School.
