    Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens

    Call it chemistry, but this one doesn't work on. Yes, the vanilla in there smells real, just like extract, but the woody notes do something dreadful to the blend and while I can't say it is repulsive, there's something about this that I cannot abide. And it DOESN'T come off. Points for longevity, which is just too bad for me. Something in this blend gets right up my nose and twists my nose-hairs. It's pain. I can't get it off fast enough and it doesn't actually come off. Big big thumbs down for making me feel ill.
