Called "Superstitious" the perfume will be released in March 2017. It will mark the 24th fragrance for Malle, and the second created in collaboration with a fashion designer after Dries Van Noten in 2013.

To create Superstitious, the pair worked with perfumer Dominique Ropion, who previously worked with Frédéric Malle for “Cologne Indélébile” and “Carnal Flower”.
