I own Bois D'Orage and like it very much. I've sampled Laurel several times.
I like the dry and yet somewhat creamy notes in Bois, excellent resin, incense & wood. I enjoy wearing it and don't get tired of it.
Every time I sample Laurel, I get the same reaction. First, I really enjoy the up-front pungent green earthy herbal notes. They are excellent. But then over time, I find the scent is a little bit repetitive, and I grow slightly tired of it. I think I may grow to appreciate Laurel as I keep trying it -- it is very close to what I consider to be a great scent for me.
Of the two, I find Laurel to be greener.
Agree that Laurel is more bold & pungent, not as chic as Bois.
