    I will definitely try it. But so far, I have been completely underwhelmed by the Malle line. Maybe this one will "click" for me.

    Oh, you said 10 sentences or less? I went for the word count. Perhaps I should've thrown in a few words like miasmic, inchoate, prelapsarian, proto-semiotic, reproductibility (?), and other undergraduate-style poststructuralist gear change snafus?

    LOL

    Has anyone smelled Pruning Shears by Demeter? It's a floral (rose) with a metallic edge and I happen to love it. An animalic / mint aspect added to this though sounds...risky.

    Mint in a fragrance doesn't necessarily mean it will come across as toothpaste or an "After Eight". I recently retried Cartier's Roadster and I think they got the mint balance just right there.

    I just tried this at Les Senteurs today!!!! I was soooooooo excited that they had it (a sample). It smells extremely minty, similiar to someone's breath right after they brush their teeth!!! After that, it gets animalic (i think it's the civet), but oh lord....ITS BEAUTIFUL!!! Will definetly buy a bottle once it's released

    I just called the New York store. It won't be there until mid-May (they said it still had to clear customs). Apparently they have had several phone calls about it due to it already being listed in their catalog.

    I called the Barney's in Dallas yesterday and they said it won't be in until late May, Texas is so SLOW!!!

    I wonder if the New York Barney's will get the 50 ml bottles and not just the 100 ml ones right away.

    Just so everyone knows, I just spoke with Les Senteurs, and they are expecting their bottles in on Thursday. Anyone who gets to sniff it please share your thoughts.

    I just tried it a couple of hours ago. Unfortunately, there were no official samples available, so I had to make do with a couple of shots to my wrist. The mint is extremely well done and smells very true to fresh peppermint leaves (as opposed to toothpaste). This could very much be what Guerlain Homme should have been but it's early days yet. I'd rather not say more until I get hold of a sample but it does look promising...

    Does anybody remember that old department store commercial where they showed a woman plastered to the store room window chanting "open, open, open"

    That's how anxious I feel about the arrival of GPM here in the states.

    I know right? Here's a bit of unfortunate news though. After speaking with a rep from Theperfumedcourt, they advised me that Barneys New York isn't expecting their shipment in until the END of May, and that theperfumedcourt would be expecting theirs in around the same time. So it looks like for us in the US we're going to have to wait a little longer than those in some of the other countries that have already recieved it.

    I just talked to the SA at the local Barney's and he is hoping that they'll have a tester in the next week or so and bottles for sale about a week after that. So it looks like the last week in May is about right in the US.

    Hmmm...Copley Mall Barneys SAs told me late May at the earliest, with early June being more likely. They're going to call me as soon as it arrives.

    Did anyone notice that it's got 'Ambergris' in the basenotes...I just checked "Ambroxan" is a substitute for "Ambergris"...

    Here is the scent pyramid from osmoz.com

    Top notes

    Mint aboslute, peppermint, Anéthol, Floralozone

    Heart notes

    Geranium from China, Rhodinol, Cinnamon CO2

    Base notes

    White Musk, Ambroxan, Sandalwood, Benzoin


    There is so much hype around the release of this fragrance....it better live up to everyone's hope..

    Alors,

    I just come back from the Malle store in the Rue Grenelle in Paris where I have of course taken the opportunity to take a good nose of the new scent. In the scent colomn (glass cylinder in which the perfume is evaporated) it smelled stunning, fresh, floral and well, sounds strange, a bit like in an catholic church. On my skin it takes a different direction. It starts with what I would call the chewing gum accord. Soon the geranium notes (that evoke rose, no question) kick in. In that next phase, around 30min. after it was sprayed on me my first thought was 'hmm, smells like Bois des Îles', which is probably because of the gorgeous sandalwood note in combination with cinnamon and rose now clearly discernible. Now, 3h after application it is a little soapy, the mint note still being strong, the cinnamon getting a little stronger. I don't expect much evolution from this point onwards.

    Conclusion: a definite must-try unisex scent (forget the name) that is not as innovative as I first thougt. Think Egoiste plus Mint minus some gingerbread notes. High quality ingredients and composition. Its not very strong btw.
