Review: Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia

Dear Mr. Malle,
I've been into perfume for about ten years now.  I'm at the point now where I don't get excited very often for new releases.  However, given that I absolutely adore about half the fragrances in your line, a new Malle makes my heart go pitter patter.  Add to that the fact that this fragrance from you was purportedly based on magnolia, a soft, luscious white flower, and I was practically salivating to try it. DARE you break my heart thusly?  This is not a magnolia scent whatsoever.  This is a faint, generic citrus cologne for which it is delusional to charge what you are charging.  I am disappointed.  Please do better.
I'm going to go spritz En Passant to comfort myself.
