    Yeah the Malle's are like that, if your not a floral guy (like me) at least half of them you wont like, i agree with you MR and VE are good, they have 2 or 3 outstanding fragrances, but the house as a whole........eh. The marketing and presentation pulled me in really.

    I'm so happy you remembered our mini synchronised Friday- Hurrah! For today at least, we can be fabulous smelling scent-twins
    My Malle Week got off to a less than auspicious start: I ended up scrubbing Une Rose after 5 or so hours - the funky note became just too funky for me to endure. Life's too short to be wearing a perfume you come to hate.
    It was all uphill after Monday though. I did get a little out of synch with the schedule I posted, but the undoubted highlight for me came on Wednesday with French Lover. Ooh la la, this stuff is magical. Green, dry, a little spicy, mossy. An olfactory epiphany for me. I couldn't stop myself taking furtive sniffs of my collar all day. I can already hear the deadly, siren calls of a full bottle...
    Today's Carnal Flower runs a close second - the most delicious tuberose I've encountered yet. It's been sunny and quite warm here in London, and in these conditions, I think this beauty just bloomed. Honourable mention goes to Vétiver Extraordinaire - nice, but I have other Vetiver centred perfumes in my wardrobe I prefer (Chanel's Sycomore and Guerlian's Vetiver notably). Sadly, Bigarade Concentrée failed to ignite any real passion in me. Kinda 'meh'.
    It's been great fun to have a themed week. I think I'll try it again sometime...
    Thanks, l needed an excuse to wear this again, glad jlouismi remembered as well, fragrance triplets for the day! l'm so glad you love Carnal Flower, it's been a lovely warm day here too & it bloomed for me also. l had almost forgotten what a stunning beauty this is, l've felt like a beautiful fresh flower all afternoon, & 9 hours after application l can still smell it on me. One of the longest lasting scents l've ever tried. lt's been on my wishlist for so long, it really is about time l purchased that full bottle! Let us know when you have another themed week, l think it's a great idea!

    I understand, I appreciate the feedback and help it was fun trying out the Malle line but they have a ton of florals and the only floral i like is git. I am still trying to give serge lutens a chance i have tried about 10 of his offerings, still have not found the right one for me.

    I smelled carnal flower, iris and l'eau and even though they are very fem i think they smell good, i would not wear them but they would smell good on a woman for sure.

    My favorites are:

    Musc Ravageur - very sexy. yummy
    Noir Epices - very unique and interesting to smell. you won't get bored smelling this
    French Lover - very refined manly scent.
    Dan Tes Bras - heliotope. same vibe as the Apres L'ondee by Guerlain.

    i haven't smelled the vetiver. I have smelled the geranium pour monsieur, it is very minty. I'm not sure if I really want to smell like that. Kind of like toothpaste! hahahahaha
