Here are the ingredients … or at least the ones the designers are willing to divulge: pimento, bergamot, galbanum, angelica seed, bay rum, clove, cardamom, juniper, frankincense, opoponax, ambroxan, cedar, trimofix, patchouli DM, vetiver, tree moss, karanal and white musks.

At a glance

A masculine scent of wood and angelica composed by fragrance designer Pierre Bourdon


Working with designer Pierre Bourdon, Frédéric Malle’s original idea was a fuller-bodied version of the fragrance Angéliques sous la Pluie. But they went beyond that concept, arriving at a sophisticated, full-bodied, ‘super-sensual but not trashy’ scent. A sort of plant-based animal quality that immediately evoked a man’s odor for the creators. As for the name, Frédéric Malle was hesitating. ‘Angélique / Bois’? ‘Angélique Intense’? Then one day in New York, he met a friend for lunch, ‘drenched in trial n° 34 C’. When she embraced him in greeting, she exclaimed: ‘Ooh, very French Lover!’ Et voilà, the name was found!

    L'un de mes 3 parfums préférés. Une véritable oeuvre d'art, un chef d'oeuvre olfactif. Vous ne l'aimerez peut être pas au premier abord mais vous ne l'oublierez jamais.

    I love the name "French Lover." Every woman dreams of having one even if it's just for the summer. This is loaded with ingredients which always gets me curious. I will try.
