    From a press release quoted at: http://www.mimifroufrou.com/scenteds...m_6.html#more:

    The eau de parfum opens on Calabrian bergamot featuring then the magnolia headspace in the heart followed next by coeur de vétiver (Lmr), Patchouli coeur (Lmr), cedar wood, ambre extrême, tree moss
    Read more at http://www.mimifroufrou.com/scenteds...YibZXZrXHet.99
    'Lmr' , I assume, refers to Laboratoire Monique-Rémy who supply top-drawer naturals.
    'Ambre extrême', I'm guessing, is *possibly* IFF's Amber Xtreme (?), used, for example, in Invictus.
    As for the headspace analysis, I'd love to know which type of magnolia it was based on. The Saucer Magnolias are out in blossom here, and have a lovely citrus/vaguely-lilyish floral scent with a hint of spice.

    Can't imagine this not being a complete winner. I've never met a FM perfume I didn't love.

    There are so many launches these days, I simply do not smell them any more.
    Total majority of niche and brand scents are horrible - no originality and cheap materials. I am lost. No new interesting YSL, Givenchy, even Tom Ford started to launch less original copies of his Private Blend from 2007.

    Frederic Malle - the best nose on this planet. All his creations are marvelous. Every time I come to Malle counter I still marvel. I remember when I received free 5 ml samples of Musc Ravageur and Noir Epices. I was shocked by their beauty. Malle was not know these days. Nowadays he is admired and is totally worth it. I am sure all the perfumers and owners of various brands would wish to create something alike to Malle perfumes, however they do not have the aesthetic sense Malle has.

    4 years spent on creation of Eau de Magnolia with C. Benaim! It must be and 100% will be a masterpiece. Every detail will be polished.

    p.s. I wish Malle to create a fresh jasmine grandiflorum scent. In the style of Lys Mediterranee. Fresh heady jasmine.

    Does anyone know the exact release date for this? It was supposed to be release in mid June (according to Grain De Musc Blog), but somehow, from the FM Facebook page, it said that they are going to release this in a few days.

    Me too! I may just buy this blind. Benaïm does such great work - summer cologne - it's almost perfect timing!

    My guess is that by Tuesday it will become available in the US right after the holiday. We'll see.

    Might blind buy it. I wonder if it will be at Barney's on June 2 as well. I haven't heard anything about it. I actually have that day off and might swing by if I get a chance.

    Have not smelled it yet. In fragrantica there is a review which compares Eau de Magnolia to Chanel Cristalle edt.
    Chanel Cristalle edt (not edp), Diorella are one of the best colognes I know.
