    Bois d'Argent Cologne by Christian Dior

    A shimmery and restrained composition that is warm and perceptibly rootbeer-like. Myrrh and patchouli is what I got most. No honey, no leather, and certainly no iris. At least that's what my little sampler said to my nose.

    To my mind BOIS D'ARGENT recalls Annick Goutal Myrrh Ardente, after a couple of Valiums that is. Kinda hard to get a rise out of this, know what I mean? The composition has surprising tenacity considering its frequency is pitched so low it keeps one guessing as to how much natural ingredients are actually in use. 'Bare minimum' is my guess.

    It's not a bad fragrance but at this price-point of perfumery, 'not bad' just doesn't cut it anymore.
