Frederic Malle LIVE Video Sniffs

Hello all you Perfumistas,


You’ve all been hanging out for one of our videos and we are slowly making a stockpile of them to bring out when the urge comes upon us. We are so lucky to have my gorgeous Scent Mother, Emma (who guest blogs here on APJ as EmmaKate) with me for this one. I hope you enjoy our little bit of perfume madness as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.

Today we look at 3 of the Frederic Malle series; Vetiver, Carnal Flower and Le Parfum De Therese. Emma talks us through them, their major accords, some history and we sniff one LIVE.

As always I’d like to thank my BFF Kath for the video and editing and TSO Jin for making it embed ready.

Enjoy, Enjoy, ENJOY!!!

    Well,isn’t Emma – Kate the cutie? I got a sample of Carnal Flower…3 mls,and I’m guarding it as if it were a bar of gold….sexy and big bold Tuberose….Thanks sweet,P that Therese might be worth checking out too.

    You know, I’d never given Vetiver a moment’s thought, but now that I know that it’s “salty” and “dirty”, I’m going to need to get myself a sample! Thank you so much for the video, Emma and Portia!

    Love it!!!! and you are welcome!!! It’s my pleasure to have a really small part in the excitement that is your blog.

    As a tuberose hater I can only appreciate Carnal Flower from afar. Le Parfum De Therese… I loved the story behind it so much that I wanted to like it. So far it’s not “me”. But I’ll keep trying – tastes change. I don’t think I’ve ever tried Vetiver. I have to rectify that soon.

  5. Love it. So much fun. Your response at 2:46 is priceless! Not much into vetivers, but the “dirty” got me. I find that FM is hard to find here, which of course always makes it that much more desirable! xoxox Steve

    Another fab video Portia – loved it and thanks for sharing your perfumed goodness with us 🙂

    Excellent! Love to hear more about what you thought of the Le Parfum de Therese as it dried down. Since Roudnitska is the creator of three of my faves — Diorissimo, Eau Sauvage and the wonderful Diorella — I really should give the Therese a try. Seems to be one of those love it or hate it scents (perhaps the melon?).

  8. Natalie says:

    Hurrah for videos! I was surprised to hear Carnal Flower has the highest concentration of tuberose – even beating out Fracas. That’s pretty amazing.

    ‘Bits of stick’ indeed. You should be a perfume critic.
