Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia was created by perfumer Carlos Benaim in 2014. Braja Mookherjee, a scientist at IFF, analyzed components that make up the magnolia smell and found it was close to a citrus. Benaim took this information and made Eau de Magnolia, a fresh take on a gorgeous flower with notes of Bergamot, magnolia headspace, vetiver, patchouli, cedarwood, amber, and tree moss..
Reviews of Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia
From Perfume Posse - "if you are expecting Eau de Magnolia to be a completely photo realistic scent copy of a magnolia grandiflora then you will be sadly let down, so what you have to expect is an artists rendering of a magnolia. Here the structure of the journey is laid out in bright and sizzling citrus to open that lasts well into the heart and even hints still remain in the base."
From Olfactoria's Travels - "I find the heart of the perfume so relaxing it makes me sigh deeply, become heavy lidded and long to while away a languid afternoon on a hammock in the shade. It’s also very pretty in a completely unconscious way, like a naturally alluring woman who is oblivious to the effect she has on the men left in her wake."
