    Good fragrance at a very reasonable price.
    Not sure if you're serious about the layering idea, but perhaps you could twin it with the EdB shower gel instead. I find it lasts a long while by itself though.

    I like it alot, as well. Definitely one of the best "finds" I can attribute to joining Basenotes....also, one of the few in my collection that has illicted multiple compliments.

    Superb incense/spice/vanilla combo that smells deceptively expensive. Warm and comforting, with excellent longevity, and acceptably unisex too IMO. Great product from an admirably good company - don't layer it, just enjoy it.

    JC said it first and I agree. This is a warm, incense with a hint of sweetness and the price can't be beat.

    Good sillage and longevity for an EDT.

    I think Eau des Baux has reached Basenotes Sweetheart status by now, surely?

    Only the real vanilla haters here dont like it and even they appreciate how good it is for the price.

    Even Joe (petruccijc) likes it, and he is, how can I put this positively.... highly discerning...

    It’s very nice. The drydown is a bit strong on the vanilla side. Layering with Kyoto f.ex. helps.

    My girlfriends dad wears it and I must admit that while he smells great it's not really something I need to steal from him.
    No daddy issues I could take advantage of, either.

    But I agree, it is a great scent at a reasonable price.

    I am on board with this one too. Thanks Basenotes

    Niche quality at a designer price. The cypress in it smells so natural.
    I also pick up a nice, light smokiness .

    This one is perfect for Fall too. Two thumbs up all the way on this one

    How does this compare to Eau Duelle? Sorry to derail the thread.

    I'm a fan of EdB, too. Today I used the EdB deodorant and wore DHI and it worked very well, imo. Of course, the Dior Homme deo isn't any more expensive than EdB, but I have the EdB and not DH. Works well enough for now.

    Eau de Baux was my first full bottle purchase and I love it.
    I really like the Eau de Baux aftershave baum as well...and the EdB deoderant...and so on.
    Also have to say I've developed a real affection for L'Occitane EDT and it's aftershave baum, as well.
    IMO L'Occitane products are straight forward and very nice quality.

    Hmm I've come across this one a bit lately. I'll have to test this one out - sounds intriguing.

    Just bought a bottle a couple of days ago, a birthday present to myself. Damn it is good. I especially love the long, long drydown. Superior bang for the buck.

    It's a great scent that's very warm. But I had to sell it. There's something about it (too sweet?) that just got to me. Sigh.

    I do enjoy Eau de l'Occitan.

    I like the scent but the longevity is very poor. And personally I find it pricey for a non-perfume house fragrance.

    If I were to layer this with DHI, should I apply this first or DHI first?

    I quite like the opening half hour, but found it a bit cloying after a while - the tonka I think? Remarkable longevity.

    Default Re: L'Occitane Eau de Baux!!

    it's weird that it's longevity and sillage are getting mixed reviews. i have tried and realised that usually, musky and thick scents have longer life on fabrics while citruses tend to stay on skin longer. i wonder anyone shares the same opinion.

    perhaps that is why so many frags have mixed reviews regarding longevity and sillage (of course weather and humidity plays a part).

    Great fragrance, IMO L'Occitane products are one of the best " bang for buck". They also have a cedar fragrance (parfum) that I recommend.
    The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?

    I agree. I once layered it with Fahrenheit and received some positive comments.
