    I talked to the Malle sales rep at Barneys in Dallas. She says they expect it in the store on May 15th.

    Looking forward to this one. It's a terrible name though. How do you answer someone who inquires about your frag? "Oh, I'm wearing French Lover." I'm cringing just thinking about it.

    I'm not a big fan of Malle for Men...MR, too something something for me. Bigarrade, orange peels. VE, boring. However, I do like Malle for feminine scents, I think they are outstanding. It will be interesting to see what this male specific scent does for me.

    QFT. The name is embarrassing. However, I do love Malle so I'm interested to try it.

    You have confidence and say it with a bit of humor, as was intended by those who gave the fragrance its name.

    Maybe Malle was affected by that housekeeper bashing comment he made in 2006 ("my friends dont want to smell like their maids!") and decided to make his next fragrance a bit more approachable (atleast in terms of the name if not price) ! Malle's next fragrance after this? "French Maid" !

    I've always loved how Frederic Malle named their scents and now this. Seems like I'm not the first to react on the horrible HORRIBLE sounding name. I can't wait to try the fragrance out though

    I think that Malle is the best quality niche company. you can not underestimate the quality of their scents

    the name? french lover? I agree with shifts that Malle's names of the scents were nice...
    hope, it will be a slight digression which will add some joyfulness (the same as Paris baby doll - to YSL scents)

    I'm really hoping for a more "manly" fragrance from Malle this time; I feel a bit left out.

    i don't want another malle scent -- i'll probably have to have it and they are too expensive -- i already have 2 malle's in line as my next purchases.

    (does sound good though, the new one. and yes, i think some people need to lighten up about the name....)

    I'm imagining something like Divine's L'Homme Sage, judging by the notes listed on the article. I'm excited! But really, I'll have to come up with a replacement name if I ever wear it.

    I have trouble with fragrances with words like "lover" or "romance" or "alllure" in them. I can imagine what a date would think going through one's medicine cabinet and finding my cologne: "French Lover" eh gods, that would be embarassing.

    high thread count sheets? what the f.... As if good dirty French sex was about linen quality. That's so GERMAN, folks ("zis sheet has a 400 thread count. Say zis number aloud vile you TOUCH MY MONKEY!!!) . Oh and THEN the Veuve Cliquot faux pas. Roederer Cristal at the least, my dears, this is where quality does matter.

    Photograph and text are downright idiotic, I agree. 'Brigitte, your guide to the good life' ...hehehe!
    But Sir: French lover = good dirty FS? Am I correct suspecting that there is a slight misunderstanding somewhere? However, let's not get into more details on that, please!

    The 'best' on this site is a recent photograph of Jean Paul Gaultier together with some blabla about 'Fleur Du Male'. La Cage Aux Folles comes to my mind immediately, and I do not really wonder why. That perfume smells really good, and so is the price which is all I should consider when I finally buy it!

    I think I have posted elsewhere on this. This new FM won't be named "French Lover" in North America. Somehow FM got a wind of this. I don't know how reliable is my source though.....
