    Sycomore. I'd probably consider Bois des Iles if I didn't have Egoiste Cologne Concentree, which I personally like much better than BdI.

    I've tried about half the Exclusifs line and so far it's No. 18. My only complaint is the poor performance.

    Sycomore. I would say Eau de Cologne if it lasted longer. Or if it were above 0 degrees outside right now.

    Bois des Iles for me too, both concentrations are a delight to wear. The modest aldelydes in the edt give the sandalwood a lift and spaciousness when playful romance is the intended effect. The lush skin-close beauty and woody balance of the parfum creates a quiet, warm, personal experience that is lovely to share -- but without a need to.

    I really am not a fan of the line. If I had to pick something it would be coromandel. It's the most interesting I suppose.

    Cuir de Russie, by a mile. I've been quite underwhelmed by some of the others.

    For stronger, less floral scents, in no order as my tastes vary from day to day:

    Coromandel
    Sycomore
    Cuir de Russie (both parfum and EDT)
    Bois des Iles (both parfum and EDT)

    For light florals: Beige

    Overall favorite would be Bois des Iles parfum and Sycomore, although Coromandel is my favorite to wear.

    Used to be Sycomore, La Pausa & Coromandel.

    Now it's Coromandel, 31 Rue Cambon & La Pausa.

    Current Cuir de Russe & Bois des Iles smell unnecessarily urbane.
