I absolutely adore the house of Frederic Malle. So many lust worthy scents. One of my all-time favourites is Carnal Flower. I may not be able to afford the $230-$340 full bottle but I loved it enough to purchase a 10 ml decant from a friend. Imagine my delight to hear that Frederic Malle coming out with a hair mist and the scent he has chosen for the introduction is Carnal Flower.
Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle makes its first foray into the hair category with the introduction of a hair mist in one of the brand’s most popular fragrances: Carnal Flower.
Lighter than the Carnal Flower fragrance, thus particularly suited as an alternative, Brume Pour Cheveux also contains an ingredient which protects hair from drying.
Malle worked with perfumer Dominique Ropion to produce Carnal Flower in 2005, thus creating a unique fragrance for women who seek ultimate lavishness that is today seen as a landmark in perfumery. Developed using watery green notes with spicy Eucalyptus and Tuberose Absolute, Carnal Flower is Ropion’s interpretation of an “olfactory Himalaya.”
Fragrance Notes: Bergamot, Melon, Eucalyptus, Ylang Ylang, Salicylates, Jasmine, Tuberose Absolute; Orange Blossom Absolute, Coconut, White Musk Cocktail
How to use: spritz hair twice (three times at most)
