    I love this fragrance with its spicy green woody character, it always reminds me of walking through a forest in the fall after the rain. A good quality cologne.

    I am beginning to feel that too.

    French Lover starts promisingly but then in about 2-3 hours it's gone. I've observed this during the last few times that I've worn this. The sillage is dismal too. I've asked my friends if they can smell it on me but they can't.

    I think I am going to show this one the door, soon.

    I had a sample that was like that which was 7% strength but lasted a bit longer on my skin. The full bottle I purchased is 9% in strength as it was changed just for the reason you mention. The new one lasts several hours on my skin and the opening lasts a lot longer to.

    Let me know if you decide to give it the chop, I'd be glad to take it off your hands.

    I have the 9 % and get 8 - 12 hours on it, (probably more as a skin scent) with 2 - 3 sprays

    I gave Bois d'Orage a skin test yesterday. The sharp smoky opening is not my kind of thing, and while the (Iso E Super?) drydown is pleasant enough, I would never spring for a full bottle of this.

    What gets me is that I could swear I have smelled this basic structure--especially the accords of the opening half-hour--before in a different, more common scent that I cannot place right now...

    I really like it. The only reason I didn't buy it until now is that I like Vetiver Extraordinaire even better. It's true that it isn't worth the money, but then, considering the real production costs, which scent really does?
