Frederic Malle Music for a While launched in Spring 2018. It was created by Carlos Benaim and inspired by "Allure irrésistible. At a party on Paris’ rive gauche, a woman’s fur coat is lifted from her bare shoulders, exposing her neck to the candlelight. Aware of many eyes upon her, she pauses, smiling to herself, before emerging like a conqueror from the shadows. A sensuous body of lavender is warmed by patchouli, amber and vanilla, and transformed by notes of pineapple and mandarin. The music is in the detail."
There are almost no great pineapple perfumes - sadly - but throwing lavender and pineapple together is genius. A joyous perfume warmed by vanilla and patchouli and amber - like the sun-warmed kiss on the lavender/pineapple.
Notes of amber, bergamot, lemon, lavender, mandarin, pineapple, patchouli and vanilla make up this EDP, eau de parfum.
From What Men Should Smell LIke - "The fragrance still maintains my faith in the brand’s integrity as it continues to launch polarising and interesting fragrances that aren’t designed to win over the masses. Also, anyone lamenting the loss of Tom Ford's Lavender Palm might find solace in Music For A While."
From Candy Perfume Boy - " The pineapple top note is juicy and tart, with a grapefruit-like acerbic quality. It’s a shock, in a good way, that a Malle fragrance would open in such a way and perhaps the most surprising aspect is the sugar syrup vibe that comes intwined with this unconventionally luxurious fruit note. Sugar! Who’d have thought it!"
