    Default Van Cleef and Arpels Bois d'Iris

    I've searched around a bit, and have not found much more than mere mentions of this fragrance. For those of you who have tried this, what is your impression? Specifically, how is the ambergris note in this? Prominent or background? Salty or smooth?

    A soft wood iris fragrance sounds wonderful to me, but I don't care for salty notes (I once mistakenly added a spoon full of salt to my coffee instead of sugar on a camping trip, and things too salty make me nauseous )

    I will most likely spring for a sample, but since they are expensive, I wanted to hear some feedback first.

    Thank you in advance, my kind BN experts!

    I have a sample. I like it better than Dior Homme. Not as much of a lipstick smell. The iris is a bit more earthy in BdI

    I have had it for a while and I like it. Expensive for the size it comes in.

    Very nice but lacks strength. It's too weak.
