    The design of the bottles are the best thing about this range of overpriced fragrances. Bois D'encens is a dirty, smoky frankincense, but is on volume 11. It is actually like having the priest waving the smoke right in your face. Get Messe de Minuit or Passage D'enfer or even Chaos instead and save some money.

    Freshly milled pressure treated lumber... you know, those grey-ish looking wooden poles? They are doused in chemicals to make them more durable in the weather and against insects. The sawdust that is kicked back by cutting these releases a harsh, almost toxic cedar odor. I prefer woody scents even stuff like Hinoki and LesNez's Let Me Play the Lion but Bois d'Ences does not a pleasurable association. It is not a forest. It is not a beautiful log of wood. It is not the distant aroma of a lumber mill's sawdust. It is the smell of the machine in Fern Gully destroying the rainforest.
