    Leather, Plum, Iris

    I gave this a couple of tries, and my responses were consistently neither here nor there. It's nice, but there's really not a lot going on, it's not very challenging, and ultimately, it's just not very rewarding... It's fruity and woody and syrupy -- all rather simple -- not necessarily memorable... And it never left my skin!

    Pros: Pleasant
    Cons: Underwhelming"

    Been wanting to try this fragrance since
    an amazing review given by "PERFUME SHRINE"....
    She wrote ...
    "Boxeuses goes straight for the jugular, playing on the familiar, original codes of the Lutensian universe: violet-tinged woods, plummy fruits, somptuous spices..."

    So here are my initial impressions...

    I get alot of initial WOOD notes and Leather notes..
    but its pretty linear....and rather quiet
    Wears pretty close to the skin...
    Incensy and ...."Powdery"
    which I read somewhere it's going to be a return Fragrance Trend for 2011.

    There's a piquant touch to it
    perhaps its the Licorice....
    The much ballyhooed and talked about fruity Plum notes showed up very subtle and much later
    as the fragrance adapted to my skin.

    Shame!....I really expected much more EXOTICISM!

    "Perfume Shrine" called it...A Love-Child of a
    Cuir de Russie type and Rochas Femme.

    I frown a bit to comparing this fragrance to
    the standard.. of CUIR Fragrances
    like CUIR de RUSSIE and TABAC BLOND...

    Believe me ....I have converted with Religious Fervor to the Fragrance CULT that is SERGE LUTENS...

    sooo it's almost HERESY to say .....

    "Why settle for "Tributes" or Vague Copies ..
    when you can afford the real deal."

    This not a Lutens favorite and I won't regret it.......

    I did not like the first splash of resins but the latter developing smoky leather enticed me like it did in a dozen different serge lutens. well, there are many close scents in serge lutens and that maybe good; you can go and tell sellerthat you would like feminite du bois with less iris and she can offer you one. But well this can be boring too. any way i like that smoky leather in daim blond, amber sultan, fumerie turque etc and also boxeuses.

    In short, plummy leather. Right out of the starting gate, you get hints of both. Spiced plum balanced by a faint, soft leather. It rolls along this way for most of it's stay. But the plum is not perfect, and the leather is suede in feel. There is a soft green feel to this, most likely the licorice note listed. A dusting of patch, and a hint of incense close this one down.

    It is not bad, by any stretch, but I was expecting so much more. All the notes are tamped down, and in the end, I feel this is a re-run of a movie I've seen before. Take the plum of Feminite de Bois, and return to it. Exchange the plum for appricot and add a bit of the musk - you have Daim Blond. Shuffle the notes, and you start all over again.

    It smells perfectly nice, but when a house revisits it's roots, I believe a novel approach should be in order. There is nothing novel here. If you approach it as a stand alone fragrance, you will be better off. I was not able to, I suppose. I love both Feminite du Bois and Daim Blond, so I'll just stick with those.

    I truly wanted to love Boxeuses, and the notes are typically good ones, but unfortunately it was a dud. Leather and plum, two of my favorite notes, are utterly absent on my skin. In trying to decipher what exactly was the screaming ashy-sour-peppery-sagey-caraway-but-not note, I checked other reviews online and many remarked smelling labdanum. Looks like I found a new doom note as this resin utterly dominates Boxeuses and pummels the other notes into oblivion even throughout the long dry down. I smell like someone doused in Axe cooking curry. *sigh* Glad I was patient and only bought a decant rather than going through the trouble of trying to obtain this Europe-only blend.

    I sampled Boxeuses ("female boxers" in French) expecting to be "knocked out" with a potent mix of plum and leather. In the end, it did not deliver and I saved myself the expense of a full bottle.

    From the top notes down, I found the scent to be average. Nothing jumped out at me at all. A gentle touch of leather and some mild florals and woody notes. The leather had the "industrial" feel of chemicals and rubber that I get in the SL Cuir Mauresque, which I enjoy a great deal. I did not get the urge to put my nose to my wrist for another sniff, the real test as to whether I am charmed with a fragrance or not.

    For me, this is not SL's best effort. Some say it's a repeat of Daim Blond.

    For a truly potent take on plum and leather, I recommend Histoires de Parfums 1889 Moulin Rouge. Rich and mildly sweet from the beginning, the 1889 has great sillage and longevity and will garner compliments.
