    I realize that I've never commented here in Conehead land on this great scent.
    The title is a pun in French. Literally, it means “in a sensation of woods” but it sounds like “incense of woods.” The scent lives up to its name: it is a lovely woody-incense fragrance.
    Cedar, Santal, Patchouli, Vetiver, Bois des landes ["woodland"], Cade, Amber, Iris, Carrot, Ambrette seed
    Another site lists adds these notes: pine, labdanum, olibanum (frankincense)

    I love this scent! It is light and airy, yet it has compelling qualities which keep up the interest level. Starts with dusky green notes and cool, resinous incense. A walk in a cool, damp forest. Then, some warming notes appear -- rich woods. The effect is subtle and wears well. Despite cade being a listed note, I don't get a strong smoky note. Something very green and resinous in the dry-down, frankincense I think.
    No longer listed on the MH website.

    Starts with a chord of dry carrot [seed] and ambrette seed. As I've said, it has a cool, resinous quality. Definitely suggest a walk in a misty morning forest. Quite charming. Light woody notes emerge. The scent is subtle and intriguing, and wears well. I think it is perfect for a cool rainy day!
