Whoo-hoo!! If I were physically able, I’d be turning cartwheels, flips and other cheerleader-like, jump-for-joy moves because I recently saw in an e-mail that Frederic Malle has launched Carnal Flower shower gel.
Which I (and probably many of you) have been wishing and hoping for and whining about for what seems like ages. So it’s no wonder I’m ecstatic!
Also making me happy (but not quite on the same level as the CF) are new shower gels in Eau de Magnolia and En Passant, and also Lys Mediterranee and Lipstick Rose.
So I’m pretty sure many of you will be doing the FM happy dance, too! Now to get my mitts on some. Although I’m wondering how fast this will sell out. Will they be able to make enough to keep up with demand? Or perhaps our lovely Patty or Musette will get some soon and let us know how it is. (I have to be honest, though, I’ve not used any of the FM shower gels, but the body creams I’ve tried were fabulous.)
For quite some time now, I’ve played mad perfume scientist in an attempt to cobble together my own take on bathing with CF, mixing tuberose shower gel with some coconut shower gel. Can’t say it was a huge success, but it was OK in a pinch. How wonderful it will be to have the real thing!
It’s available on the FM site, of course, and at Aedes de Venustas. Barney’s Web site doesn’t show it, but when I called a brick-and-mortar store they had it in ($65 for 6.8 ounces / 200 mls.); it’s also available at Les Senteurs, but did not see it listed on the Liberty of London site. It appears that the bottle is plastic, but I can’t tell for sure. (Let’s hope it’s not glass – not for the shower, please!). Maybe some of you with prior experience with a Malle shower gel can weigh in on this.
Anyhoo, please share if you’ve tried any of these new ones or any of the other FM shower gels.
Or what body product (new or old) is making you fragrance happy so far this summer?
