    For me, Bois de Iles is for when you want something that smells like No. 5 but don't want to wear something so ubiquitous. It's aldehydic, warm, beautiful. I need to try the Parfum....

    Agree with Amouage Gold, L'Aimant, No. 22. Adding the original Caleche by Hermes.

    LiliB put it so nice!!

    no 22 and no 5 are 17 floors away from eachother

    and i am so surprised that this perfume could be bestseller, when to me it feels someone has to have really special taste to like it! i can understand hype about Shalimar, it was sweet, how this one was appealing?? did it have anything to do with Merilyn Monroe?

    but back then in general people must have had much better taste when Shalimar and No 5 were bestsellers, or Joy, unlike whats most sold today Light blue and other light sweet waters

    oh no i cant agree with Amouage Gold....its darker, harsher civet-rose, ....chanel no 5 is only bitter but nothing dirty, much lighter white floral
