    If you liked Feminite du Bois you'll very probably dig this. The usual Lutens syrupy quality is toned down and paired to a rosy-musky element while a solid cedarwood base directly descendent from the original Shiseido, serves as a terrific interpretation of a woddy fragrance. Not my favorite Lutens but still well worth checking out if you like the house.

    I get something like citric elements , aldehydes, nutmeg or cinamon , musk and lots of cedar ... It seems the cousin of CdG 2, but with much less longevity.The smell itself is not bad at all but , in these terms, I prefer the original to the copy.
    It doesn´t deserve to belong to the sacred lineage of Lutens.
    Blasphemy!

    The 1992 version was an altogether different beast...
    A velvety purring cedar base, but not overwhelmingly so.
    It had a subtlety that drew you in, and was unlike anything that had come before.

    Smells like saffroned dry coconut peels or mastic forgotten in a drawer full of dated spices. even if there is a musc there it is obscured by rancid spices. Cannot find anything enjoyable in it.

    Bois et Musc is a well crafted fragrance that smells exactly like the name claims; Wood and Musk. The cedar notes last about 30 minutes and there is something in the opening that reminds me of warm beeswax. All the notes blend very well with the musk, creating a fragrance that is warm and inviting. The musk in the drydown is a somewhat cleaner musk than MKK's drydown, but it still retains enough dirtiness to it to make it interesting.

    As for sillage, Bois et Musc it tends to stick close to the skin. The cedar notes project more than the musk does (which is to be expected). The scent doesn't last as long as other SL creations (namely Ambre Sultan, MKK) but is still noticeable ~6 hours after I applied it.

    This would probably be a good choice of scent for someone who finds MKK too loud but who still wants a very good musk perfume.

    Feminite du Bois with a healthy dose of soft musk! I actually liked this one better than 'fruits' & 'oriental' ~ still, my favorite in Luten's "Bois series" is Violette, but this one would suffice as a replacement - in a pinch.
