    Great stuff, but do not mess with it! Why this everpresent urge to "layer"?

    The shaving products and the deodorant stick are also nice companions.

    I'll also endorse the Shower Gel as lovely; it smells so alike the EDT.

    SOTD for me here in Northern California on a cool, crisp autumn day...perfect harmony. The fragrance is so warm, sensual - incense, woodsy, some vanilla that adds depth but is not cloying at all. Superb! I also wore the Eau des Baux deodorant, which is extremely high quality and have the shower gel - although I used a great sandalwood-infused soap bar in the shower along with other hair products. I find this to be the best offering from L'Occitane, although I have always loved their products and have products from their L'Occitan line (EDT & After Shave) and Cade (Shower Gel & Youth Concentrate). One of the few "mall apothecaries" you can walk into and truly breathe in and "sensualize the quality" through smell. Prices are never really lowered, but the quality speaks for itself. Personally, I find layering it to be totally unnecessary. The longevity was about 6 hours on me today...and I was out and active. This is a darling on Basenotes - and for good reason. Magic scent that captures "autumn in a bottle" and soothes you and those around you (as sillage is above average)...

    I like it to, and it's not my style. There was another post about people comparing it favorably to a $200 cologne (Spirit Double Vanilla?). That seems like a good value to me!

    I've seen it compared to Tonka Imperiale from the same line as SDV, which is why I've been curious to try it, but unfortunately, I can't seem to find it anywhere around me in Japan.

    This is one of my winter favorites. Very powerful and you can spray one shot of Diesel Zero Plus Masculine to up the festivities with an added blast of Xmas cinnamon.

    Best deal on this is to Google search "beauty 20" which should bring a paid result link at the very top offering a 20% discount at Beauty.com. Then you can buy for $38.40 instead of $48.

    Agree with the accolades pronounced upon this great fragrance, although it hovers toward the edge of too sweet for me. Could be that I pulled the trigger about 15 times. Just kidding.

    Just bought it because they had a free shipping and free gift promotion online...

    No daddy issues I could take advantage of, either.

    But I agree, it is a great scent at a reasonable price.
    Could have imagined this scent now ^^

    Fortunately I have a L'Occitane Boutique close by, and have tried all of their scents. They're all good and very reasonably priced!

    Didn't care for Tobacco Vanille but Eau De Baux smells really good. I am going to buy if they have a sale or maybe in the fall.

    So are there any other "under the radar" ridiculous bang for your buck fragrances like this??? They don't have to be similar, I just get really excited when I find an extremely high quality fragrance for $50

    Eau de Baux is wonderful - warm, cozy and transcendent. The Vetyver from L'Occitante is also a wonderful composition that includes a nice vetiver note (but don't think Guerlain or Givenchy)...as it has a nice earthy accord, but the composition is not a 'pure vetiver'.

    Scent pyramid from L'Occitane website (which I feel is correct, with the leather a light touch...more of a light suede):

    Top Note: Bergamot, Lemon
    Middle Note: Nutmeg, Gaiac wood
    Base Note: Vetyver, Cedar wood, leather

    Another bottle, to keep the topic on track of the L'Occitane house is the spicy lavender of L'Occitan Eau de Toilette bottling. The after-shave balm is fantastic as well and the layering effect is beautiful. Rich and fragrant lavender (totally pure scent with fresh ground black pepper and a dash of nutmeg is the primary composition) on the top and heart with a warm base.

    According to L'Occitane's website, the pyramid is:

    Top Note: Lavender, Black pepper
    Middle Note: Nutmeg, Cinnamon
    Base Note: Tonka Bean, Musk

    And, one final fragrance from Yves Rocher (since we are in the apothecary realm) is Comme Une Evidence Homme - a steal for around $32 with a great shower gel!

    From Yves Rocher's website:

    Olfactory family:Spicy, floral woody
    Top notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Cypress
    Heart notes: Floral rose facet, Black pepper, Nutmeg, Cardamom
    Base notes: Patchouli, Gaiac wood (Bulnesia sarmenti variety), Cedarwood

    Fantastic, warm and inviting composition with excellent depth - excellent use of wood, spices and patchouli (along with a nice rose note in the heart that is ethereal - very unique).

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
