  1. So excited about getting to try the Armani Prive scents — thanks, and I’ve submitted my details. And no, I am behind on the latest Malle news so looking forward to hearing what you think.

  2. Would LOVE to try the new Malle! And I’m always up for a grab bag – it’s like treasure hunting!

  3. I didn’t know about new Malle until your post because this is where I get all my scent news! I’ll go scout it out right now. PS my partner and I are driving an hour and a half this Saturday because we have an appointment to meet my niece’s new Frenchie puppy, named Starlord. We get half an hour at 11 am, as the puppy has a very busy schedule.

  4. I haven’t heard about the new Malle release. To be honest, I wasn’t able to try anything that came out after Superstitious.

  5. Music For A While! By Carlos Benaim! Can’t wait!!!!!! Looking forward to hearing more about the fragrance.

  6. Haven’t heard about the new Malle yet, but would love to be entered into the March grab bag contest, thank you!

  7. Looking forward to that one and the EU exclusive, hope it gets here! All the best with your moves!! <3

  8. Too many new releases to keep track of. A new Malle? Vaguely familiar but no details that I can remember!

  9. Moving after the new bathroom and kitchen? Isn’t that always the way.

    A new Malle is always exciting, as are grab-bags; thanks for a chance to win.

  10. I didn’t know there was a new Malle, sign me up! Sending positive vibes for all your upcoming changes!

  11. DNEM – but move???? Oh no – you just did your bathroom and kitchen!! Best wishes with the new adventures. (I can’t help but be sensitive to the whole move thing since we just did that: Colorado to Seattle – it’s good…but hard.) Looking forward to hearing what’s going on with you and those cute Frenchies.

  12. I love Armani Prive and the new Malle should merit a look-sniff. Good luck with all the changes ahead. Thanks for the draw.

  13. I haven’t heard about the new Malle but I’ve loved his fragrances that I’ve tried! My dog and one of my cats love popcorn too!

  14. Up until recently I studiously avoided Frederic Malle because of the price point, but the Fat Mascara podcast did an interview with him last month and now a) I want to marry this guy, he’s so hilarious and charming; and b) I want to try everything from his perfume house. Including the new one!

    • The travelers are the way to go! That’s how I got most of them and they are the perfect size. If I go through one of them (10ml) then I know a FB is justified.

  15. I’ve been dying to try the new FM strictly because of its lovely name. Happy life changes!

  16. I have not heard of a new Malle, but they always seem well crafted. Please enter me in the draw!

    I just bought two new perfumes, Le Labo Iris 39 and Dior Ambre Nuit. My BIL did the shopping in London and didn’t get a single sample throw in! I was so disappointed, those perfumes are not available locally, so I have very little possibility to sniff them unless I get hold of samples. Don’t they want returning customers??

    Luckily the ordinary Malle perfumes are accessible and the travel sprays a good option for those of us feeling we don’t need big bottles.

  17. Love the generous spirit here! I’d love to win something. Ready for a little good-smelling cheer up after a stressful month.

  18. Shame on me, I didn’t keep up with FM news. But I similarly cant take my mind of Fucking Fabulous, it should arrive in stores soon. Just yesterday a shop assistant told me they might end up calling it just “fabulous” in the EU. Too funny name I guess.

  19. This was the first I’d heard of it! But I’m still in the process of sampling this line. A tiny vial of PoaL drew me in years ago but the price point has prevented major exploration. Having said that, I tried the aldehyde heaven that is Superstitious this morning and Stevie Wonder’s been popping into my hear ever since…..

  20. This is the first I’m hearing about Frederick Malle’s new scent. I would love to try it!

  21. I can’t wait to try and hear more about the new FM. I heard about it’s release last month and have been so excited ever since then. Thanks for giving us the chance to try it! As always, love the pics of your pooches 🙂

  22. Hadn’t heard of this new one and thanks for the giveaway…..(as they eagerly await their ‘pawcorn’)….! Lol

  23. Oh my GOD, your Frenchies + your caption are excellent! ! Now I’m having pet envy, to go with my Malle envy (for me too, the budget cannot accommodate a purchase now, or foreseeably!) Always so exciting to get a chance — very big thank yous for the info drop and the draw!

  24. omg a new malle..that is great news….does anyone know anything about it?

  25. I haven’t heard about FM’s new scent. Do tell! It ‘s sure to be yummy.

  26. I haven’t heard about the new FM scent yet, but they several of my favorites so I’d love to try it!

  27. A new Malle? Cool beans! Would love a chance to sample it. Thanks for the draw.
