    Exclamation OMG: Malle, the man himself, in Houston

    I was in a local store yesterday, Kuhl-Linscomb (a home furnishings and gift store which carries many niche perfume brands) and my favorite SA there told me that Frederic Malle had come to the store several weeks ago to personally check it out, to see if it measured up as a possible venue for his line. His people had requested that the visit not be publicized as a meet-and-greet the perfumer, but just be a private visit. (I was told that he was friendly, charming, low-key, non-arrogant.) Apparently his 10-year Barney's-exclusive deal (in the U.S.) is expired, and he may or may not remain exclusive with them. (There is no Barney's in Houston! -- so, the 4th largest city in the U.S. is, at this time, Malle-less...)

    Oh, how I wish I had wandered into the store when he was there... !!!! (And I'm so excited to think we MIGHT soon have his products here!)

    (for those in this area who don't know the store: www.Kuhl-linscomb.com.
    I have no affiliation with them, other than as a customer.)

    Cool!

    It's been informally leaked that he'll be going into Aedes, too.

    Have you gone nuts with the Iris Poudre cream yet? If I had a whole tub, I'd pick a lazy afternoon, put on waaaay too much, and just reek of it all day!

    man, I really hope he won't stay exclusive with Barneys, unless they open more branches

    There have been rumors of Barneys being on the verge of bankruptcy for years now. It would be wise for most anyone who is exclusive with them to have a back-up plan...

    Hi rogalal -- no, I haven't gone nuts with the cream yet! I just built a little shrine, where I worship it.... :-)
    But you're right, I DO NEED to make a luxurious day of it -- hmmm, think I'll do it this Friday! (thanks for the nudge!)

    This is good news- it would be great to find his line in more locations.
