Reviews of Bois Doré

A fantastic vanilla fragrance by van cleef. opens nice and fizzy, and maintains a beautiful balance with the cederwood and spices.

Vanilla fragrances can be cloying like boucheron zanzibar, or light but breif like creed's vanille sublime. this one is superlight, perhaps even more so than creed, but more well rounded and long lasting.

It is certainly a feminine leaning scent, but its delightful enough for me to put it on once in a while.

Fantastic fragrance. Tonka bean, almond, vanilla, musk and woody notes extremely well blended. Perfectly unisex too.

Along the lines of Tom Ford F***ing Fabulous but without the leather and lavender notes.

It's a simple scent yet it feels complex, rich and sultry. Simply put, delicious and intoxicating.

I had no experience with Van Cleef & Arpels prior to testing a few fragrances from their Collection Extraordinaire line. I would classify the few I've tried thus far as understated (and underrated). Bois Doré opens with a non-gourmand, dry vanilla with an excellently blended tobacco projecting with equal strength. This is no Tobacco Vanille. Where the Tom Ford announces his presence with heavy footsteps and continues plodding for several hours like the quintessential upstairs neighbor, the VC&A unfolds almost gently, radiantly, like catching a glimpse of a shy but gorgeous wallflower at a cocktail party.

Balance brings forth the beauty of Bois Doré. No single note overwhelms the whole, but each note offers a unique and identifiable contribution to the composition. A cherry-tinged almond blends with the dry vanilla but also somehow stands alone, avoiding the common, overly-sweet cherry tobacco that is often the byproduct of joining almond and tobacco accords.

Tonka bean and something woody (cedar, perhaps, if the pyramid is to be trusted, but most likely a combo of various woods) round out the base, giving the whole thing sturdy legs to stand on for its 12-hour lifespan. The final hours quiet almost all of the notes except for the vanilla and woods, and it gets a little sweeter before finally calling it a day.

Overall, this is probably my favorite vanilla + tobacco fragrance thus far in my journey to smell every perfume ever made (apparently). Absolutely worthy of a full bottle for me, and worth testing for anyone who appreciates a nuanced tobacco.

This perfumer's products have been a mixed bag to say the least -- he seems to have reserved his best for Diptyque.

Bois Dore is a very simple blend of woods and vanilla/Tonka bean but smells divine from top to bottom
