Not all appointments are planned in advance. This is the first in a series of posts about appointments that made a surprise splash in my schedule.
Appointment with: Frédéric Malle, founder of Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
Meeting place: Café de Flore, Paris
Date: April 30th, 2009
On the menu: Coffee and Dalloyau Croissants
Purpose: Interview for Monocle magazine
Last month my editor at Monocle called to see if I’d be free to do a last-minute interview with fragrance maestro Frédéric Malle for a rubric in the mag called My Last Meal. The concept of the column is brilliant: each month a non-food professional is asked to describe their proverbial last meal (where they’d have it, with whom they share it and what, of course, would be on the menu).
