    Default New Frédéric Malle Release - Eau de Magnolia

    When I met Monsieur Malle at an event last year, he mentioned the next perfume to be released was a Carlos Benaïm creation, but wouldn't elaborate.
    Welcome Eau de Magnolia to the line, as reported at http://graindemusc.blogspot.co.uk

    Interesting! If it resembles anything vaguely like magnolia essential oil dilutions it won't be to my liking. Is the 'Eau de' an indication of a possible EdT concentration? We don't know yet I suppose. We no longer have a Malle boutique in Vienna, so this one will likely escape me. Thanks as always, G.!

    Jurassic flower is my favorite Fleur mechanique fragrance, this should be good. FM said he was working on making a magnolia floral, on the same level as jurassic flower. This one is for the girls.

    Not curious at all. I have never been much of a fan of Malle, and now that they are reformulating all their scents in a horrible way, I am even less interested... in Italy we say "to put a cross on something/someone" meaning that you are not interested anymore in something/someone - as if it was dead for you.
    My current top five:

    Tiffany - Tiffany for Men (vtg)
    Yves Saint Laurent - M7 (vtg)
    Fendi - Theorema
    Chanel - Antaeus (vtg)
    Van Cleef & Arpels - Tsar (vtg)

    Default Eau de Magnolia by Frederic Malle

    According to blog Perfume Shrine:

    Magnolia is shaping up to be a major, recurrent theme in niche releases lately and one of the first officially "niche" brands, the one who introduced the notion of "perfume authors", namely Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle is issuing their own version: Eau de Magnolia, as depicted below.



    The task has been undertaken by acclaimed perfumer Carlos Benaim who knows how to construct a floral of this waxy and yet also lemony fresh blossom, fluffy and substantial at the same time. The effect can be nothing short of radiant! Up till now, Benaim's skills had been utilized in the Editions de Parfums line for the Home scents (for which he composed Cafe Society, Rosa Rugosa, Rubrum Lily, Jurassic Flower and Saint de Saints), but now a major new release of fine fragrance is trusted upon his shoulders for Eau de Magnolia.
    Also a small description of it from Grain de Musc blog:

    While working on Carnal Flower, Dominique Ropion had come up with a tuberose so realistic it couldn’t be worn as a personal fragrance: it ended up as a candle a few years later. This time, Frédéric Malle started by putting out Carlos Benaïm’s rendition of magnolia based on the flower’s headspace as the home fragrance Jurassic Flower. It has now grown into a perfume. Eau de Magnolia was presented to the press just yesterday, but since a new Malle is always an event, I thought I’d wrap up the list with it, pending a full review…
    ADDED: Please note that Eau de Magnolia will hit the shops mid-June.
    Excited to smell this!

    Maybe there's 'eau' in the title because it's going to be a light transparent sort of scent. I might actually like that - all of the magnolia scents I've tried I haven't liked. I smelled the flower once, walking down a hot street in Athens, Georgia years ago. My God, that smell. Amazing. But, in fragrances, I haven't been impressed.

    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.

    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.
