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 love Sycomore on me and others love Coromandel on me

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.
Mom asked me to vote for her - 31 Rue Cambon
Cuir de Russie followed by Bois des Îles.
We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting. ～Kahlil Gibran
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:
Cuir de Russie (both parfum and EDT)
Bois des Iles (both parfum and EDT)
For light florals: Beige

Eau de Cologne, because it's one of the best summer scents around.

Sycomore, and Cuir de Russie extrait. Followed by Coromandel.
Sycomore, followed by Coromandel and Bois des Iles.
I have four of them - Sycomore, Coromandel, Eau de Cologne, and Cuir de Russie - and prefer them more or less in that order. If I were to get a fifth one it would be Bois des Iles or maybe 31 Rue Cambon...
Jersey and then Sycomore
