    Default New Frederic Malle - rumored to be a lily of the valley fragrance

    Did anyone read the post on Perfume Shrine about this?

    '...Their new super secretive launch according to info I leaned is concerning a popular spring fragrance, the lily of the valley or muguet, currently developed under a code-name...

    ...Now that Diorissimo is almost ruined due to libertarian (and industry-compliant necessary we learn) reformulations and the most convincing lily of the valley substitute ingredient, hydroxycitronellal, is heavily restricted (lily of the valley can't be effectively extracted, read our article for more substitute lily of the valley/muguet aromachemicals), the challenge is great and fascinating to watch unfold. The new F.Malle fragrance with lily of the valley will roll in stores in March 2012. Will Mugghetone (the name will change) convince us on the existence of gods?

    May we remind you that there is a lily of the valley fragrance in Les Fleurs du Malle home collection, 1er Mai (May 1st when lily of the valley posies are traditionally offered in France in celebration of the day) composed by Dominique Ropion...'


    I love Diorissimo, the vintage extrait has a nice bite to it. Interested to see what perfumer will be creating this one and what direction it will be taking.

    An exciting prospect. Also, it seems green florals are making a come-back... I'm thinking of Tauer, DSH, some others.

    Damn Malle is easily one of my favorite lines, so I'm always thrilled about a new one, but Lily is like the one note in fragrances I really can't stand for some reason, makes me feel nauseous.

    After Une Fleur de Cassie & Carnal Flower anything could happen. Malle and Ropion are just about untouchable when it comes to taking on florals in an unapologetic classical manner. It is exciting news, hope the rumour / insider tip is on the money.

    Thanks for the note. I love vintage Diorissimo parfum too, and there's nothing remotely close to it - perhaps the restrictions are really unsurmountable. But who knows, we shall smell, although my hopes aren't high, even with the Malle name on it.

    This new one is lily-of-the-valley, not lily. Different smell.

    I, too, do not like lily (well except for Anais Anais) but lily-of-the-valley I do like.

    I'm very curious to smell Mugghetone (in italian it sounds really funny...why they want to change it?). Lilly of the valley is usually a hit-or-miss for me. The only two muguet prominent fragrances that I LOVED so far are vintage Diorissimo and Carrillon Pour Un Ange.

    Oh really? I did not realize there was such a difference. So this shouldn't smell like Lys Mediterranee? (which ironically is exactly the kind of lily I can't stand)

    No.

    You can read a great article on the differences between lily and lily-of-the-valley on Perfume Shrine here:http://perfumeshrine.blogspot.com/20...-lilypart.html

    I'd love to smell a real lily-of-the-valley overdose, like Geranium Pour Monsieur but with lily-of-the-valley. The only other tenacious muguet scent I've ever encountered is vintage Muguet de Bois by Coty which is much different than the current juice.

    Let's not forget that Lys Méditerranée consists of three different species of lily: ginger lily, lily of the valley and water lily. So, it would only be natural to see how this new release compares to Lys Méditerranée.

    As this is now April and the launch was said to be March....... I guess there really won't be a lily if a valley scent by Frederic Malle ?

    The current Diorissimo is still a striking and very persuasive LOTV to my nose, with a lovely subtext of breezy lilac. It remains, for me, the muguet standard bearer. I would love for Malle, or anyone else, to challenge Diorissimo’s preeminence in the accord, but I’m not losing any sleep over it...

    Oh yes, Mr Ropion is the dream nose for this in my world too! This would be a scent I would actually consider to blind buy - and I NEVER do that

    I talked to him last night and he did say that there will be a release around Spring that he has been working on with Ropion and without going into details he said it would probably do quite well 'here' (being Hong Kong), which I take to mean a lighter scent, so there ya go. He tends to play it pretty close to the chest.

    He also mentioned his marketing people were sort of pushing to have it for Christmas but he said he and Ropion weren't happy with it yet and laughed - definitely a a page out of the Douglas Adams book re. 'deadlines'. He's a funny guy - sounds like he and D. Ropion have a couple of others 'on the go' which is very good news.

    Also finally got one of the black travel atomiser containers as a goodie bag gift - been wanting one for years!
