    No surprises here... the only Malle I still own (Une Fleur de Cassie) is 'femme'.

    How stupid and inconsistent to differentiate this way!

    +1 on above. really overpriced for what they offer. you're looking at 40ml for 130euros, hmmmm... i think not. i'd rather spend the same (maybe slightly more) for just one 100ml bottle.

    Yeah, thinkin now....... 225 Euros for the full collection of 18 which makes the bottles about 12 Euro each. They are the same size as the Dior Privée Sample bottles! Hmm. I really wanted this. I thought that it would be a lovely library of the Malle Editions. But yeah.....

    You can get free samples from Liberty in London and each one has quite a few ml's in them!!

    Given the size of my collection, and how lightly I spray, it takes me a looooooong time to use up 5ml. This would effectively give me all of the Malles for...well, years, and plenty of wearings to help me choose a favorite or two for a full-bottle purchase.

    Well, I caved in and I bought one! I know that it is expensive but I am very happy with it. I went for the complete 2012 collection. It has all eighteen fragrances in it. It worked out at £188 and a few pence with no charge for shipping. It arrived from France in one day. The presentation is plain but stylish which I like. It comes with a set of postcards which correspond to each fragrance. They have a pictorial representation of the fragrance on the front and a photo of the perfumer and a short precis of the fragrance on the back.

    Now, to value for money. Well, unfortunately I do think that they are expensive. The bottles are 5ml, so there is 90 mls of fragrance in total in the coffret and the price is the same as 100ml bottle of a single fragrance[I], BUUUT it depends how you approach this hobby. For me, well I am perhaps more inquisitive than acquisitive so it is an incredible opportunity for me, a privilege, to be able to experience the whole range. Really, lingering over them and being able to choose is wonderful. Bear in mind that the closest stockist of the range to me is in London.

    Last night I went straight for Vetiver Extraordinaire, just to smell, then I wore Portrait of a Lady. Today, Carnal Flower. They are all fantastic.

    Given that the collection is also a showcase really, and that it will inevitably lead to full bottle purchases, it would be nice if it was offered a bit more keenly priced but, for me it represents many wears and many, many hours of exploration, so I am delighted with it.

    BTW, it would make an absolutely fantastic, failsafe, gift for a fragrance lover if you are close to one and you are loaded!

    Or treat yourself, you know that you are worth it!

    Edit; Sorry amended the price. It was £188 odds, not Euros as I first posted. As G tells us, the price is 225 Euros.

    Spotted these coffrets yesterday and foolishly thought no one here had seen them yet. Ordering from Les Senteurs is roughly £15 more expensive than direct from FM.

    I just wanted to thank Foustie it was thanks to your post I decided to take the plunge and buy the 2012 collection split between me and my other half of course.

    Oh go on! If you can afford it, go for it. It is a lovely thing to have.....and also then L'Enfer and you can come back over here and we can all have a chat!!

    I can tell you guys that I am absolutely delighted with mine. It is just the most stunningly gorgeous collection. When you see them ALL together, you can really, really, appreciate the quality of this line. I was familiar with some of them, but not all. I have a couple in my collection already. Dans tes Bras for the first time today!

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I've been waiting for something like this from Frederic Malle for a looong time. Like Foustie I too am more 'inquisitive' than 'acquisitive'. Any idea if they ship internationally?

    Thank you for the kind offer, Foustie. It seems they do ship internationally but I think I should check the local Malle stockist first to see if they carry these coffrets. After getting a Cartier L'Heure as a gift last week this will look like a splurge. I know I've been good this year but probably not THAT good!
