Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle

Carnal Flower

$8.00

Launched in 2005, Carnal Flower is one of the ‘tuberose trinity’, along with Fracas and Tubéreuse Criminelle.

Tuberose is an intriguing plant. It grows in hot climates, its white flowers used in weddings in India and for leis in Hawaii, but this night blooming plant has a different personality at night when it releases its fleshy, luscious, seductive scent.

Angéliques sous la Pluie

$5.00

Angéliques sous la Pluie is,without doubt, is the most subdued of all the Frédéric Malle fragrances. The website says that “it was inspired by the fleeting whiff of an Angelica bouquet gathered just after a shower”. and contains only 5 notes: angelica, juniper, coriander, musk, cedar.

Portrait of a Lady

$8.00

Created by Dominique Ropion, Portrait of a Lady is the 19th frag in the Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle line and it’s a swooner!

Noir Épices

$5.00

Right out of the bottle comes a cloud of orange, not fresh-squeezed Tropicana , or orange zest, but orange oil with an unusual cold metallic note under it from the geranium, like a mechanical, industrial smell. The geranium, aldehydes and pepper make the top loud and sharp, but they start to settle down when the orange sweetens from the rose note, and the whole opening accord becomes softer.

L'Eau d'Hiver

$5.00

Introduced in 2003, L'Eau d'Hiver is Jean-Claude Ellena’s nod to Apres l'Ondee.

Bergamot at the start open the way for florals - powdery iris, angelica, white heliotrope and jasmine. Cold and crisp, a note of almond adds richness, honey adds sweetness, caramel adds warmth and musk rounds it all out with an animalic note.

There is no hardness to this scent, no roughness. This is a very refined, gentle scent that evokes a cold winter’s day, but is gorgeous enough to wear any time.

$5.00

Dans Tes Bras

$7.00

Created by Maurice Roucel, the word on the street is that this EDP is an homage to Après l'Ondée. It does share some of the violet and earthiness of Après l'Ondée, but it is just a nod.

DtB is the smell of intimacy, not just sexual intimacy, but  the smell of skin that you get when you reach in close for just a moment to kiss someone in greeting or goodbye.

Géranium Pour Monsieur

$5.00
geranium

This Frederic Malle fragrance by Dominique Ropion promises geranium, a note I really enjoy in scents because it is so distinctive and unusual. There are many varieties of geranium, and their scents vary, but all possess that distinctive green, earthy, almost resinous aroma which is like no other.

Bois d'Orage (French Lover)

$5.00
flacon

If men wear scent, I think it's important that their "significant other" really like the scent, too. For that reason, I decided to buy my husband a new scent for his birthday.

I'd read about Frédéric Malle's perfumes which are all created by different noses, and tracked them down at Barney's in NYC. I fell in love with French Lover - called Bois d'Orage in the US (the name was changed for the US market after 9/11 - too bad - French Lover is a great name for a fragrance).
