    Default Serge Lutens Les eaux boisees

    I like cedar, and I like Feminite du Bois as the predecessor of Les eaux boisees line.
    Which one do you think is the best from Les aux boisees scents?
    It's hard to smell all shadings from the wax samples

    They're all fairly similar...and true to their name. Bois et Fruit has a distinct, sweet peach note in it, Violette has a dry, violet note, and is a bit more green than the others. Musc is probably the lightest of the bunch, and fades into a soft musk. I haven't tried Oriental yet.

    All start with the same, unique cedar note, and to my nose are almost identical until the topnotes fade a bit. I'd say if you like one, you'll like them all. Violette is my fav I think.

    Oriental & Fruits are almost identical and they're both wonderful. Only the top notes are different.

    If I could only keep one bottle from my whole collection it'd probably be Bois et Fruits.

    Dreamer dear-
    It depends on what you enjoy !
    If you love Cabochard, then un Bois Sepia is fantastic...
    Bois et Muscs is very creamy and gorgeous.
    Bois Oriental is similar to FdB, but has more vanillic resins.
    Bois et Fruits is delicious with plums and more 'dried fruit'.
    Bois de Violette is breath-taking; so beautiful, it hurts.

    A win-win.
