Geranium Pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle Cologne. Geranium Pour Monsieur is a men’s fragrance by nose Dominique Ropion.
This fresh and aromatic scent, which hit the market in 2009, includes top notes of aniseed, mint, and, of course, geranium. There are also base notes of frankincense and sandalwood. Other ingredients include benzoin and clove.
Frederic Malle was born to create fragrances. His grandfather was Serge Heftler, who founded Christian Dior Perfumes. Malle’s mother went on to be an
Art Director for that company, as well. While Malle originally studied art history in school, he could not ignore his family’s perfuming tradition. He got a job at Roure Bertrand Dupont, and over the next decade he developed relationships with other famous noses. By 2000, however, he realized that many of his fellow perfumers were upset about the direction of the industry, particularly the focus on image over the actual scents. Malle thus founded Editions de Parfums, a perfume publishing house where 12 noses are free to show off their creativity.
