    Default NEW from Frdric Malle, "Dries Van Noten par Frdric Malle"

    "Dries Van Noten par Frdric Malle" is to be released in February.

    the Notes which look amazing: (quoted from fragrantica) citron, sandalwood, guaiac wood, saffron, Spanish jasmine, tonka beans, Cashmeran/blonde woods, vanilla and musk.

    This sounds interesting: "Not only is the collaboration with a fashion designer news, it's also an innovation on the formula front, as the new Malle perfume is touted to be inclusive of a new, natural Indian sandalwood from a sustainable source. Indian sandalwood, for those who didn't know, had essentially been eradicated from perfumery in the last 20 years or so, due to concerns and regulations on the sustainability of the Mysore sandalwood. The news therefore is a leap of hope for the industry in general and sure to create a real peak of interest in the heart of every perfume fan out there. The new fragrance is an oriental woody, smooth and polished like the designs of Van Noten."

    Interesting. Wonder what Van Noten knows about perfumery? Perhaps it's a collaboratibe effort with a perfumer.

    Sounds interesting. Unfortunately my experience with sandalwood is limited (OS, MBI), and I didn't care for OS at all. I'm interested to see what Malle asked the nose to do with it.

    The new bottle label is very ironic! It looks like something from Byredo. LOL!

    I get nervous about vanilla in perfumes... not exactly the most subtle note. The danger is that the vanilla could overwhelm the sandalwood note that is supposed to be the centerpiece of this perfume.

    But if anyone can do it, Malle can, so I'm interested to see how it turns out!

    I've always admired Malle's approach to fragrance, and the way that they don't just pop out new frags one after another.

    But I do wonder about this one. If it's going to have a fashion designer connection, and it's made by someone who's not a part of Malle's stable, how exactly will the association with Malle fit into the equation ?

    Apparently Van Noten had been selling Malle's fragrances in his boutiques for some time, and this is what led to the collaboration. According to Fragrantica, this fragrance is the first of a new line for Malle in which he'll be collaborating with several fashion designers.

    As a Malle fan, I'm not sure that I view this change of course with optimism.
