    Bois des Îles by Chanel

    I have to agree when people say that who uses Egoiste soon will upgrade to Bois des Iles. As said, BdI is more creamy, softer and more refined than Egoiste. Both are outstanding fragrances, but since i knew Bois des Iles, i have been using only it.
    To have an idea, it's the same about SL's Borneo 1932 and Chanel Coromandel: Coromandel is more refined while Borneo is more raw.

    The opening may smell a bit dated, but it does dries down to something outstanding: Bois des Iles has a sweet sandalwood base that lingers for hours.

    The longevity is okay, around 7/8 hours, with a good projection and gentle sillage.

    Unisex for sure.

    So if you like Egoiste, Heritage and other sandalwood based fragrances, Bois des Iles is a must have!

    Big thumbs up!
