    Musc Ravageur. The drydown is one of the best.

    On me: Vetiver Extraordinaire, Bois d'Orage

    On my girlfriend: Une Rose, Le Parfum de Therese

    Love these also but prefer them on someone else:

    Carnal Flower
    Lys Mediterranee
    Iris Poudre
    Noir Epices


    I like all of the rest of them. Dans Tres Bras is unfortunate, but not terrible. Same goes for Outrageous. I don't wear a lot of them but this is a great house, much better than the Creed watercolors.

    For me, Musc Ravageur followed closely by Carnal Flower.

    For my husband, French Lover followed loosely by Bigarade Concentree.

    Une Fleur de Cassie by far. From an artistic point of view, the 'funky' floral-skanky smell, the reference mimosa/cassie perfume and its vintage feel and amazing longevity, albeit comfortably moderate sillage.

    The Bigarade Concentratee and Vetvier Extrodinare look interesting.

    Portrait of a Lady. I love it on me because it has strong sillage and longevity, I love the black currant and the roses interplay.

    I love the whole collection, each fragrance is well crafted and distinct. There are three Malles on my "most worn" list here: Le Parfum de Therese, Geranium Pour Monsieur, and Une Fleur de Cassie. I'm not sure I could single out one as my favorite, but the first two are extremely elegant and versatile, while UFDC is a piece of artistry.

    For Me: Iris poudre & angelique sous la pluie

    I think bois d'orage/french lover is a really elegant sophisticated masculine fragrance.

    Carnal Flower. The green opening makes me tear up a little bit in a good way. As a fan of tuberose I do love that as well as it's not stifling or overly creamy like Fracas but it's the greeness that gets me.

    Cologne Bigarade is amaaazing with the freshly zested citrus opening but IMO beyond that I'm not a fan. It's the cumin.

    Musc Ravageur and Carnal Flower. You have to ask?

    They are all excellent, but the one I own so far is Iris Poudre because it is the opposite end of the spectrum of the way I like iris. It is wonderfully executed, sweet and floral. It is as "pretty" as I want to get with iris, and it is a perfect example of what iris can be on that end of the spectrum.

    My favorite is L'Eau d'Hiver. It's light, transparent, honeyed-heliotrope is clean, calming and introspective all-at-once. One of Jean Claude Ellena's masterpieces.

    I really want to try Portrait of a Lady but cant get a sample. Should I blind buy it? Or maybe someone here can sell me a sample?

    Lol Yeah . . . I bought it. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Gonna meet 'the lady from Malle' tomorrow at the Dries van Noten par FM launch - looking forward to trying this one.

    My favorite is Portrait of a Lady. Something about the way the currant carries the rose is so beautiful, to me, and the longevity is kind of ridiculous. One of the few fragrances that truly holds up over one of my superlong days. Also one of the few where a single spritz can, later in the day, draw comments from further than arm's length.

    Carnal Flower is a close second. Can't wear it every day, it overtakes my thoughts. But I love it.

    Lys Mediterranee, but I wish that it had better longevity.

    Carnal Flower is the best tuberose I've ever tried -- and I've tried just about all of them. I love it. It's amazing.

    L'Eau d'Hiver. I blew through a 10 ml travel size of this. I like it better than Apres L"Ondee (heresy, I know). It's such an unusual, addictive scent. Wonderful in hot weather.

    I'll add a new found love of Carnal Flower.

    The body butters are amazing & can be worn alone. Highly scented & moisturizing without being sticky.

    I own the body butter in Un Rose and would love it in Carnal Flower & Iris Poudre.

    My next Malle purchase will be En Passant & Vetiver Extraordinaire soap.

    the whole line of F.Malle is unique and very well well composed

    Vetiver Extraordinaire and Carnal Flower are my personal fav, they unique and masterfully made, love it!

    en passant because the acquatic true lilac makes me think of happy summer days when I was little, it is ethereal and beautiful and my fiancée goes all bouncy when i wear it

    lipstick rose because it is a true happy scent. it instantly puts you into a good mood, it sparkles softly, is including a good portion of humur ,yet it is classy.

    i love it from start to drydown

    Dans Tes Bras, Noir Epices, Portrait of a Lady and Une Rose are my favorites, but I also enjoy most of them. Did not care for the new Dries Van Noten at all though - sickeningly sweet on me and not to my taste.

    Carnal Flower, a masterpiece.

    Carnal Flower because it is cool (at first), green (not herbal green),and fresh. I love tuberose.
