Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur was released in 2009, created by Master Perfumer, Dominique Ropion. Geranium Pour Monsieur was inspired by Malle's memory of old, rich soaps from his childhood. Geranium from China was mixed with rhodinol, anise and mint, and the natural notes were treated in a way to strenghten them. It is a fresh fragrance combined with natural elements. Notes of mint absolute, peppermint oil, Chinese geranium oil, CO2, clove, white musk, ambroxan, sandalwood, resinoid incense and Siamese styrax benzoin.
Reviews of Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur
From Portia at Perfume Posse - "Sometimes I wonder where to wear Geranium Pour Monsieur, in my head it needs a certain environment to work, then I grab it and spritz for random things and enjoy it immensely for the fun, interesting and wonderful piece of frippery that it is. If it takes you more than half an hour to get to work then Geranium Pour Monsieur could work for you, it’s a little intense in its initial burst. Same advice with eating in case it overpowers in its first half hour and you only taste your Geranium Pour Monsieur and not your yummy food. I get 4-6 hours depending and a second spritz at any time during its life will give you up to 12 hours fragrant."
From the NonBlonde - "It feels like an ideal summer scent, and while at first I didn't think it's all that great and definitely not a must-have, it has grown on me the longer it stayed on, and one day later I find myself still thinking of it."
Lee from Perfume Posse - "So, a fresh ‘man’s’ scent in the Malle line up. Though this isn’t a ‘hang out on the beach and crack open the beers’ fresh masculine. Rather, like Chanel pour Monsieur, Monsieur Balmain or even Eau Sauvage, three classics that also draw upon fresh appeal, it’s a smartly turned out chap oozing charm and savoir faire. I may well wear it in beach shorts and nothing else, but it’ll be happier with a linen suit and a bone dry Sauternes."
