"Too Feminine" is too subjective an opinion to truly get a feel for. I think they are, but I also don't care for either. They are poster children for all I find unlikeable about many of Lutens' creations. They're way too sweet, way too strong and have a total lack of subtlety that I find to be a turn off. I absolute LOVE Un Bois Sepia and Douce Amere. However, the rest of his creations have a captioned pic next to to the word cloying in the dictionary. This is especially true with Un Bois Vanille. L'artisan's smokey and sexy Vanilia run circles around Lutens' creation.
