      I'd love to try Geranium Pour Monsieur but FM EdP were only willing to send me a sample if i paid 17 euros postage! I'm sure its fantastic but alas i will never know.

      Really glad Géranium Pour Monsieur got the award since this is such an uncompromising and truly modern scent! Lunoar: you should try to find a store that carries FM perfumes near you to experience this one since overseas shipping costs are indeed expensive (samples are free of charge but you still need to pay for the shipping from France to your country)

      I am one of the biggest Malle fans. This is one of the first niche houses that made me pay attention to this genre. I am a big fan of his scents....and BRAVO!!
