Description

Frederic Malle Monsieur Cologne was created by Bruno Jovanovic. It is his first perfume for the Frederic Malle line. Monsieur focuses on patchouli, a cornerstone note in the perfumery world.

With information taken from the Internet: "Monsieur has a unique dosage (over 50% of patchouli obtained by molecular distillation). The perfumer endeavored to purify this material in the extreme to turn it into the key link in the evaporation chain: The initial tangerine notes convey a particular freshness. These top notes mingle with the enigmatic and syrupy character of rum absolute, a link with the sea of patchouli that lies at the heart of the perfume. A substantial measure of cedar and of incense endow the latter with a sensuous and mystical vibration, while touches of modern amber confer a darker side to it. Hints of vanilla and musk tie everything together and soften the sharpness, to tame this brute into a sensuous, magnetic and nonetheless civilized animal! No one has dared use patchouli in such a pure form since the 1970s."

Monsieur is an Oriental vanilla fragrance for men but I love it and would wear it. It features top notes of tangerine and rum; middle notes of patchouli, cedar, incense and amber; and base notes of vanilla and musk. It is an eau de parfum, edp.

 

Reviews of Frederic Malle Monsieur

From What Men Should Smell Like - "Rum absolute combines with tangerine and the whole thing smells of Grand Marnier cocktails served in a gentlemen’s club decorated in dark wood and leather furniture."

From The Black Narcissus - "Opening with an almost disconcertingly sharp mandarin note bathed in rum , the clear, refractionated patchouli essence of the perfume soon makes its sensual  presence felt: very taut, and very polished, while presently, more trouser-heavy, carnal notes of musk, amber, amber and vanilla make their presence in the base as our protagonist begins to feel a bit restless and horny at the end of his long and impeccable business day . You can almost smell his later conquests here, with a bodily, more intimate aspect laid bare under the overall patchouli frame"

    Yummy!

    I am familiar with Frederic Malles works but this was my first time sampling the nose of Bruno Jovanovic. The cedar, to my nose, was the opening comment. Invigorating, almost antiseptic-but in a good way. the patchouli and incense come quickly to mediate the relationship of the rest of the notes. Vanilla I smell at a distance but up close, Its all about the patch, cedar, incense. So interesting how these molecules distill out from our bodies at different rates based on their size and (possibly) how warm we are.Great longevity, Good sillage. Nice work Mr. Malle.
    I look forward to receiving my next sample, The Night, again by Frederic Malle. The nose for The Night is the same that created "portrait of a lady". I adore Dominique Ropion and his sensibilities with fragrance.
