Creed Bois Du Portugal
Rummaging through some of my saved gift/high-end shopping bags for a care package, I came across my Barneys bag from the Chicago BN meet-up... Discovered an unmarked sample in there, with a distinctly Lutens purple/grey color and I seemed to recall having requested a sniff of the reformulated Feminite du Bois... It was like a birthday present a couple of months late out of the blue!
The original FdB never worked on my skin, though I recognized it as a beautifully constructed fragrance and it made me sad that I couldn't wear it. The reformulated version probably has some synthetics, but I *LOVE* how it smells on me! I must have the skin of a peasant - can't handle the real, high-end ingredients. I'm also likely to end up with a peasant's wallet adding this one to my Wish List... Ah, well. Perhaps I can manage some self-control ::running to freeze credit cards in the nearest ice tray::
Feminite du Bois notes: Ginger, cinnamon, clove, plum, peach, orange blossom, violet, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, benzoin.
It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson
My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....

Hi, nice to read this! I know we share some Passion about Guerlain classics. (There`s no such thing as matured Mitsouko Parfum). But this Samsara is REALLY big fun. But it needs even more time to evolve as I thought. While I can go quite liberally with all kinds of Mitsouko, Jicky, the classic masculines like HR or even Vol de Nuit - this one has a too feminine structure if not used sparingly. I used 3 little spritzes this morning and most of the day Samsara was mostly a cool, radiant, clean Jasmine. Now the Sandalwood is creeping around - excuisite! And btw. it was 25 Euros on Ebay ...
