    Default Bois d'Argent

    Guys: What comes to mind with Dior's Bois d'Argent? Would be interested in your thoughts / experiences.

    The honey note is very pronounced. I love that. And the longevity and sillage are just great.

    I smell the honey, iris and incense. I even smell a hint of chalk in the topnotes. Great scent overall.

    I still haven't smelled this one...the last of the 3 Dior colognes.

    The chalk note sounds neat.

    Honey and soft woods are what I get. It's my favorite from the trio.

    A gorgeous subtle iris; a dusty orris-powder iris with honey. It's soft spoken but one of THE best irises out there, in my opinion.

    I like the smell of Bois d'Argent, however I have a hard time wearing it. For me, I get honey ( which I like) and something maybe floral. I could be way off here with this description, and I am thinking maybe the floral note/accord I get is iris. I really can't tell because I am horrible with notes, although the honey is easy to point out. I was expecting tobacco here, as it was mentioned in the notes ( in the Basenotes directory ). A nice scent overall and on the feminine side.

    Myrrh surprises me, but is perhaps a clue as to why I like this so much.

    What comes to mind for me is the similarity between Bois D'argent and Dior Homme Intense.

    Subtle and smooth, but surprisingly long lasting.

    Thumbs up!
