    I find this to be a pleasant but not outstanding scent.
    It starts strongly in the verbena camp: lemony, basil, a bit of yeasty bread.
    It opens into a dewy spring garden, full of green notes and some florals and a hint of wood. One might say that it is an earthy version of a EdC style of scent.
    I find I have to apply it substantially in order to really get some of the notes. So, after a few applications, I detect a bit of fennel and some patchouli which is alternatively mint-like and earthy.

    Have to admit that I bought this one heavily discounted. Doubt I would pay the niche prices for it as there are other fragrances similar to this that are better and cheaper (vintage Rochas Eau de PH, AdP Assoluta). Still, TdB has a natural smell, herb-of-the-earth, that's hard to come by. It's pretty much Verbena, Vetiver and Galbanum with a Patchouli/Woody background. Can't imagine what the EdP adds to the mix but the EdT is the one I have and it's very presentable.

    Terre de Bois opens with very quick zing of near-transparent vetiver before a dominant lemon verbena note takes hold and remains into the scent's heart notes with the vetiver later acting as its backbone. The lemon verbena comes off as a lemon citrus and floral hybrid, with a very soapy undertone. There is just the faintest hint of mild spice backing up this sublime minimalist concoction. Projection is below average to average, while longevity is quite tenacious.

    Terre de Bois is a rather simplistic composition. That said, complexity is not required to smell good, and make no mistake Terre de Bois definitely does. The vetiver used in it is of the non-smoky variety, and it melds with the lemon verbena perfectly, forming a very fresh and clean combo that is a perfect scent for warmer temperatures. It is relatively subtle, so if you are looking for a powerhouse scent keep looking. That said, for those looking for a nice easy to wear scent with excellent execution, I can highly recommend this one! 4 stars out of 5.

    If you started an equilateral triangle with Chanel Pour Monsieur and Comme des Garcons Vettiveru, the third point would be Terre de Bois. It's a scratchy, woody take on the eau de cologne. The blustery, citric-sage start is a bit misleading. Terre de Bois goes quiet very quickly, but can be sensed up close for hours. The name nails it though. There's the feel of soil from the patchouli and the woody tone of the vetiver. The herbs enhance both, and the feel is specific; not leafy, not grassy, not mossy. Just dirt and trees.

    TdB smells 'natural' in that all of its parts are recognizably botanical, but it has a very balanced use of its elements. Nothing vague or blurred.

    At a glance, TdB is autumnal and handsome. I bet it'd be wonderful against type in a frilly-pretty springtime setting.

    Fresh and green, this starts off a little rough, but quickly sweetens and develops a green-woody accord that is very pleasant. Basically a skin scent after the first few minutes, it nevertheless has a decent longevity. This is a mellow scent, being warmed by the sweet Indian spices in the base. As soon as these notes appear, it is wonderfully soothing and calming to the spirit. Wear day or night when you seek a warm atmosphere. Quiet and pleasant enough to wear at work.

    You never know how much you miss something until it's gone. Have returned to TDB and I still love it, which doesn't always happen. A brilliantly blended unisex fragrance by Lyn Harris of woods, herbs and spices. The fennel and juniper in the middle are the stars together with the lovely patchouli at the bottom. Lasts all day on me, spanking sillage and women love it -- there are no negatives. A brilliant creation.
