    227 bottles can't be easy to get rid off...
    The robbers surely had taste at least.

    Thankfully the poor driver wasn't hurt. I've just put a curse on those thieves and if it goes according to plan those bottles will turn into Fred Hayman's 'Touch'-a most truly vile scent befitting a thief!

    It's sad but it's kinda funny at the same time. The robbers have a great taste! Hope they're not ones of the basenotes members

    For some, that's their only way to get into the sometimes expensive world of niche and high-end scents.

    Oh, and for those that don't speak French, take heart - the name of the new line "Dans Tes Bras" is not an inappropriate overture of some sort. "Bras" means arms. :P

    Well, for the next couple of months wearing Malle will make you an alleged criminal. And the special agent of the police corps will become a member of basenotes to study the SOTD's. Beware ;-)

    P.S. Indeed it's nice to hear that the driver is uninjured.

    But my immediate thought was - where in Islington do they sell Malles? I thought Les Senteurs had exclusive UK? Fantastic news if they don't - another item I can obtain without putting business to LS

    I think Mike Perez and Jock are the culprits and that they're hiding out in an Illinois Wal*mart parking lot trying to figure out if they should sell the bottles in dollars or euros! HA!

    The guy left his truck open and unattended and the criminals were already aware of the contents of truck? And all they stole were the Frederic Malle fragrances (with car in waiting)?! It's not as if the Frederic Malle logo was emblazoned on the vehicle. I'm sorry but something doesn't sound right here...

    That's what I was thinking when I read this... inside job, perhaps? I'm sure the insurer will take care of it. All of a sudden there's going to a flood of FM bottles for sale at shady fragrance stands in Russia....

    Wonderful. Any idea where the third one is? Smithfield somewhere? I've tried to figure it out by my google-fu fails me.
    Or is it just a free publicity stunt by an enterprising promoter? (My cynicism knows no bounds...)

    Edit - ah I just read the other last two posts - seems I'm not alone in my cynicism. Its the name drop and descriptrions of the luxury fragrance which ring alarm bells....convenient free coverage....?

    After realising that the "brain scan of Roucel" marketing promo for Dans Tes Bras didn't work (read that golden nugget here: http://www.mimifroufrou.com/scenteds...ic_m.html#more ), Malle has upped the ante on the new marketing charades !

    I don't know about anyone else, but if I stole a few hundred bottles of Malle I'd be damn sure to hoard them for myself.

    There is actually a new 'trend' in London for high end/luxury goods shops being hit by knowledgable (in the sens that they know exactly what item they want, brand name etc.) criminal gangs - a few fashion designers have been targeted, Christopher Kane had his entire collection stolen a day before a show and Anya Hindmarch has, I think, eployed 24 hr private security guards after her shops were broken into a few times. Maybe they're moving on to other luxury goods? They obviously knew what they were after (or were very, very lucky thieves).
    "It's now very common to hear people say "I'm rather offended by that." As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well so fucking what." - Stephen Fry

    Hmm... 227 bottles at a total value of £7344.08? That works out to £32 / $51 a bottle! A tidy profit for Malle, no doubt.

    Well at least this means Malle's will be cheap on eBay for the next month or so.

    I know I'm buying, stolen or not.

    buying too if it s on ebay.

    Slowly but surely, and after having discovered it better lately, this house is becoming my favorite.

    Carnal flower is my fav frag ever, and yesterday in my "luxury" perfume shop in Geneva that sells FM, i tried a few. I HAD to buy french lover (bois d'orage) at the same time. Just could not resist, instant love. I had tried the old formulation (PV 7%) 2 years ago, did not impress me. Having seen this had been reformulated I decided to try it just in case. And omg how amazing this "new" french lover (PV 9%) is beautiful.

    so woody, so sexyyyyyyyyyyyy. I love it. And i love this niche.
    Current top 10 in no particular order : Malle - Carnal Flower (pre 2008) ; Montale - Black Aoud ; Bond #9 - Silver Factory ; Tauer - L'air du désert marocain ; C&Z - No 88 ; Francis K. - APOM ; Creed - Aventus ; Amouage - Epic ; Profumum - Dulcis In Fundo ; Amouage - Opus V

    They canceled and reported my bin to ebay those retentive R*****s sellers. Question is: how do they fit 33.3 ml on 10 ml travel size sprayers?
