Un Bois Vanille
1 May 2014
Summary: This fragrance opens with an unusual blend of liquorice and coconut milk. Together the two notes blend into a vanilla-like composition which, however, breaks apart if one concentrates on the notes.
Summary: This is vanilla, almost drowned by dominant other notes: booze (brandy?), licorice, woods and benzoine. In the beginning the licorice rules, quickly followed by some boozy note and sharp woods. After that i can clearly detect beeswax.
Thick, resinous, dark, complex vanilla with black coconut and incense-soaked wood. Addictively unique

Summary: A dark, musky vanilla with a woody base. Not syrupy-sweet, but rich and spiced like a middle eastern dessert, wherein the richness gives the impression of sweetness. It envelops you in a cloudy haze of thick, resinous vanilla, you'd think it came out of smoking den with velvet curtains.
Summary: Heard such great things about this, thought I'd try it. It's not bad but the vanilla smell is not sweet like I usually like, it is more of a burnt caramel. Nice bottle, seems like a nice brand but overall this was not for me.
