      Great. Err... FM's Geranium is "Geranium pour Monsieur" not "Geranium pour Homme"!

      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! :smiley: 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!!

      Malle is one of the very best fragrance lines out there at the moment - keep up the good work! :)

      And what do we get? 20% discount on Geranium, Vetiver, or Épices...?

      Never mind, Sir! A large number of men here is happy to witness Éditions' constant success in releasing modern perfumes of première qualité! Nice occassion to also thank you for your good humor in naming one of your great perfumes 'French Lover' - delightful!

      Truly deserved - congratulations Mr. Malle - for a good perfume but also for 10 years of hard work.

      How wonderful! I will take out my Bois d'Orage today to celebrate, although my avatar whispers French Lover...
