I recently received a sample of Eau des Baux from a friend, and I wore it for the first time last night, and I've got to hand it to L'Occitane.... they've created a pretty damn good scent. For the better part of the fragrance's life (which might I add is stellar!) it's not wholly unique, woody-incense in the same vein as various others before it, but the drydown, oh the drydown! It's is utterly gorgeous, lightly smoky vanilla, just fantastic. Surprisingly cheap for such a natural smelling, well-made scent, I'm really quite surprised that I like it as much as I do, I'm not the biggest fan of the woody-incense genre. Are there any other fans of this underrated gem out there?
