    Default New FM fragrance by Maurice Roucel!

    Dans tes Bras (In Your Arms)

    "It continues the sensual theme of Musc Ravageur, though it's meant to be a little more subtle.....some 16 hours later is still radiating with the fragrance. It's lovely, though heliotrope haters would probably object to the powderiness. It feels like a classic French scent and I'm not entirely sure how steamy it is, but I like it nonetheless."

    notes : bergamot, cloves, violet, jasmine, sandalwood, patchouli, frankincense, cashmeran, heliotrope, white musk.

    available this October!

    Gaia over at "The Non-Blonde" gives the scoop



    Sounds "ok" but will hold my judgment until I sniff it. :wave:

    Also be on the lookout for the new fragrance that he's developing for Bond#9, slated for a late 2008 to 2009 release. Should be an interesting one as well.

    The question is, did he or did he not wear a mustache when he created this scent?
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Thé Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    his mustache is classic.

    by far, the most recognizable face in the world of perfume creationists.

    and he is an amazing perfumeur.
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
    Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

    Sadly, I don't share that experience. With the exception of Une Rose and Musc Ravageur all FM scents last about 15 minutes on me...

    I've yet to find an FM that I really like AND has good longevity... Maybe this'll be it!
    Looking to swap/buy/receive for free () the following samples/decants:
    Indult Tihota & Rêve en Cuir
    Chant d'Aromes extrait
    Vetiver pour Elle (5ml decant)


    Selling/swapping:

    The Scented Salamander reported a little more info on the scent today:

    '...Both men worked on sculpting and snapping into place the "Rubik's Cube" of the scent of bare skin, "We hoped to capture the deep and lasting odor of warm skin, with all its salty hints and rich, intimate complex overtones." Malle is so pleased and personally touched with the result that he decided to have a well-known radiologist take a MRI of Maurice Roucel's brain in an attempt to try to understand the inner workings of Roucel, the magician...'

    You can read the article here.

    Very interesting, as I really love skin scents!

    It looks like they changed the label on the bottle?! I think I like the new one better...

    Also, great to see the price won't be in the 'carnal flower range'..

    Thanks for the link Mike!

    NOOOO!!!
    Now he looks like a dirty politician...
    I kind of miss his Super Mario Profile.

    He is the creator of Envy, I had forgotten he was the creator of Envy! no wonder it is so similar to MR.
