To my nose, YSL's Roses de Bois is an exact scent twin to YSL's Paris. In fact, I really wished I'd had some Paris handy so I could have figured out the difference between the two. In any event, Roses de Bois is a deeply sweet rose jam scent that is quite elegant. I think it is great, but then I am a huge rose fan!
And now the quickie review for Roses des Bois: still fresh , but with an added light fruity kick of blackberry.It also has wild roses and the sandalwood has a better command of the basenotes, the top notes have a greener edge to it too. Very nice as is with the rest of the limited eds of YSL's Paris Frags. Delicate and femenine.
A surprise - retains the main theme of Paris, adds a softer rose accord and juxtaposes the entire composition against light woods. I finally feel like I can wear a little Paris!
Wonderful rose scent for summer, light, refreshing, feminine.
