Bois d'Argent by Christian Dior

I've tested all three colognes today and would like to add more notes to the list above, here is what I found on "Fashionlines": Falling between the two is Bois d'Argent, which is a woody fragrance meant to be worn at any time, and distilled from the quintessence of incense from Yemen, Iris from Tuscany, Myrrh from Somalia, Patchouli from Indonesia, honey from Alicante, and leather from the Sahara.
I like it a lot, it's slightly spicy, the Myrrh gives it cool and clean feel on the skin, although it was a quite hot and humid day today.

Eau Noire Cologne by Christian Dior

Notes, from Fashionlines: The formula is derived from white thyme leaves, clary sage, lavender, Cedar oil from Virginia, violet stems plus a drop of vanilla.
Someone said "sex in a bottle", I fully agree ! Although notes-wise they only seem to have vanilla in common, Eau Noire has a similar feel to it as Sables from Annick Goutal. A confident, spicy, sexy scent, very close to the skin, but Bois Noir is lighter, more modern, more playful than Sables.
