Trouble is a murky blend of jasmine, woody/floral amber, and vanilla. While the effect is no doubt intended to be sexy, the actual result is somewhat flat and indistinct. Its starts off with a fresh jasmine with facets of mimosa, lemon, and perhaps a hint of tuberose on a thick background of woody/floral amber. As the jasmine recedes, the vanilla beings to come out, sweet but not particularly foody. The dry down is more of the same: the amber and the vanilla.
Trouble has some similarities with another one of Jacques Cavallier's creations, Cinema. But where Cinema is sunny and sweet tempered, Trouble is more dull. That is not to say that Trouble is a bad fragrance... it's just not a great one.

I can't say enough good things about this fragrance. It is seriously one of my signature scents. The fragrance lasts and lasts and smells better as the day goes on. While suitable for day, save this one for night. It's warm, alluring and mysterious. It reminds me of something the good/bad girl would wear in a 1940's film noir movie.
Trust me people will ask what you are wearing when they smell this on you and when you tell them it's called "Trouble" they will give you a knowing smile and you can give a sexy smirk right back.
My only complaint...it's been discontinued. :(

I went for a blind buy of the 15ml edp based on the reviews here and you ladies did not disappoint. On my skin it is a warm, cozy (powdery) vanilla with a soft (maybe white) amber-incense touch and sweetened with creamy jasmine (i dont get sugar sweet). I don't get much from the lemon but maybe that's what keeps it "fresh". Nor do I get any cedar (thank God) It reminds me of a classic florental and very much "my type" of oriental. I can see why some would choose this as a signature. I think its lovely and I'm glad I have it in my wardrobe!

This and Givenchy's Ange ou Demon are my all time favourites. Ange ou Demon for day mostly and Trouble for night. Trouble works for me in a big way, my husband loves it and so do any other males that get within a smelling sphere. Its strong, sexy & slightly masculine which kinda gives it that edge. I like it because it has some punch, it says i'm here, smell me, approach me if you have the kahunas for it.

I work at a store that sells discontinued and rare fragrances. I just sold my last bottle of boucheron trouble and my awesome customer gave me a very generous spritz on each arm even though she says she cannot find it anywhere!
I am floored by how divine this is on the skin and on fabric. It is slightly indolic but not rank like shalimar or obsession. The jasmine adds depth to a beautiful, warm, rose based floral without smelling like a public bathroom. There is a slight sweetness to it that brings a bit of youth without taking away from the very womanly, sophistocated character of this scent.
I wrote "yes" for repurchase even as it is discontinued. I would get if if I could for special occasions! I would wear it all the time if it weren't so rare.

I first sniffed this in a department store a couple of years back and it really intrigued me. Cue a few years later and I ordered myself a bottle online. Oh dear :-( I had high hopes for this but I just can't get past that odd citrus note. It really reminds me of lemony raw cake mix but not in a good way, it is just a bit cloying. It is kind of a powdery lemon vanilla bomb but it smells as if the notes just don't blend. This certainly doesn't live up to its name, as 'Trouble' makes it sounds as though it should be sexy and alluring but actually it is inbetween a day and evening fragrance and quite strange to boot. Might work really well on some but not for me.

I don't have it, but I'm crazy about getting one!!
This is one of the best perfumes I've ever tried in my life. Seriously. Smells like sexyness, love...it's just perfect.
So sad I can't find it in Brazil very easily :(
and if I find, it's just way too expensive

WOW! just wow! I got this for $5 after gift certficates on amazon. I got the 0.50 fl. oz. of the limited ed parfum and i am in serious lust with myself right now.........this is so sexy and warm and like previous reviewers said just a classy vanilla bourbon scent and i am NOT into gourmands. i am a floriental/oriental/chypre chick and this is definitely a SUPER find! I am going back to buy more of this.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Do you want to smell like a WOMAN? Oh, I love, love, love this. It is elegant and sexy at the same time. The bourbon, vanilla note description is correct....but there is just something in there that makes the fragrance far exceed the individual components. The dry down in divine. Definitely for someone who is not into girly..........this is all woman!

For now, this is my signature scent. I don't care that's it's spring, I'm still holding on to winter! When I think of this fragrance I imagine sitting with someone you love on a bench swing in the crisp chill of a fall evening, or a afternoon of the early winter. I imagine fallen leaves and nearly bare trees, sweet comfort food, and a wood stove.
Trouble is a warm, comforting vanilla that remains pretty much monotonic on my skin. However, this is a classy and dynamic vanilla. The scent lingers and I can't help but stiff my wrists and revel in it's woodsy yet gourmand beauty. Although the scent lasts for at least six hours. From the application, it remains an inoffensive scent. It's no nonsense, warm scent. Because it is rather monotonic, you don't have to wait out notes that you don't particularly like. What you smell is what you get!
I only received a sample, and it's nearly dry. I'm looking to purchase a full bottle, and would more than likely purchase again when it's done.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
This just smells...interesting! It's unlike any other perfume I own. It definitely changes on the skin, and the drydown is almost masculine on me. I'm on the fence with this one; I love it's uniqueness, but I can't think of many occasions where I'd reach for it over something I already own. Therefore it's not a rebuy, but I'm glad to have tried it.

When I sprayed this scent on a scent strip I was bewitched. It smelled warm and yummy. Then I sprayed this on myself...and instantly thought of Dior Hypnotic Poison. Which meant I ran to the bathroom and started scrubbing my wrist as though I had just sprayed acid from a bottle. Similiar to HP, this scent had an aethestic note to it that was not agreable with my skin. With HP, it was Play-doh. Trouble smelled like straight rootbeer on my skin. I tried to love it but it simply wasn't for me.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I love, love, love this! So do men. Some other posters have done a good job of describing the scent so I won't.
I had many of these samples and finally ran out. Found one on ebay in original sealed packaging and am so happy.
Since it is discontinued I will probably stock up.
A while after spraying this I so not really smell this on myself but get many compliments, mainly from men.
I feel like it is a sophisticated, warm scent.

I love Trouble; loved it when it first came out, love it still. I remember being at a department store counter and smelling an exquisite, vanillic waft, saying to the SA "What is that beautiful fragrance?!" She didn't even have to think about it; she knew which one it was!
Trouble... rich vanilla, light lemon wafting along the top. But I don't get Lemon, per se, not Lemon Zest, Lotta Lemon Juice, nothing like that. There's just... a little subtlety around the top that helps make this fragrance unparsable, surprising. In the middle is a rich, indolic, warm jasmine, and in the base a touch of labdanum? Something incensey.
But you don't smell individual notes wi/Trouble, you smell a soft, warm, aromatic, complicated, beautiful scent. The one thing you might pick out is that rich, warm, vanilla in the base. This isn't a gourmand scent, and not in any way would you think cookies, or milkshakes. The floral aspect is so complex, so aromatic, that it can't possibly be foody. The jasmine/vanilla combo almost equals out to rootbeer, especially with the lemon on top, because it melds into an accord, a whole, rather than parts or individual notes.
Now, I do not hold with that whole "man magnet" thing. BUT, if I were forced, on pain of death, to name a man-magnet perfume, Trouble would be it. I've had a few men stop me to demand to know what I'm wearing and then watched, stunned, as they took the information down (including where to get it on the internet!) to buy it for their partners!
I, too, as previous reviewer notes, will wear this just to smell it on myself, it's that pretty! The bottle is heartstoppingly gorgeous (as are all Boucheron bottles) - ruby red, heavy, square glass bottle, lovely top. I also have the compact, a heavy, gold, Art Deco, beautifully machined Objet D'Arte in a black velvet bag, stunning, and a good representation of the scent (AND, there's a mirror in compact!).

I picked up a 1 oz. bottle of Trouble in Marshalls recently, having remembered that I liked it when it first came out. Unfortunately, the great looking red bottle doesn't have the serpent winding around the cap anymore. The serpent's head is now an innocuous black enamel (plastic, actually) lozenge :-( But I'm happy with my purchase. Trouble is a sweet, boozy, vanillic perfume that lasts forever. I woke up this morning, over 12 hours after applying, to the scent of coumarin coming from my skin, which I really enjoyed, and which makes me think Trouble might smell nice on a man, too.

Eeewww! This litarally turned to "trouble" on my skin. When I spotted this in Marshalls, I got excited because I remembered the positive reviews from MUA. At first glance, I thought...hmmm, what a gorgeous bottte but 10 minutes after it hit my skin, I was nauseated. That sickening Amber note emerged and just obliterated me. Peeuww! And of course it clung to my skin for dear life even after 2 washings. Yuck!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
*Edit, again* Well.. I don't know what happened, but this is now sickeningly sweet on me. Guess it wasn't meant to be.
*Edit* HG!! I knew it existed!!! I would wear this just for the pleasure I get from smelling it (lol), regardless of what anyone else thought of it. But actually, its the only scent that I've ever gotten complimented on out of nowhere (i.e. I didnt have to ask "what do you think of this one?"). This is THE cool/cold weather scent for me, period. Its sooo comforting.. I've been spraying it on before bed, and its like a soft fuzzy blankie, lol. How can something be a fuzzy blankie and totally sexy at the same time?? Well, Trouble somehow does it for me. Its so funny, as I went to post this update, I saw the next review calling this vile or something. Hahaha. I will always be fascinated by how different we all are. Oh, and btw, I also tried the "Eau Legere" version of this, just praying it would be a way to wear Trouble in warmer weather... Aw man. Didn't work. It seemed like they ripped the guts (and stability) out of the original Trouble. It went all sweet and sticky and cloying.. and never changed. But I think I'm gonna have to give it another shot. I'm determined! There must be a way to wear Trouble year round!
Mmmmmmm. Sometimes a perfume just WORKS on you. Finally, finally, finally. Perfect blend of cozy and sexy. Yummy from beginning to end on me. No overwhelming beginning, no root beer.. Also, I really dislike strong citrus-y smells, and I don't get anything remotely resembling a lemony blast from this. Just smooth and delicious (in a sexy, not foody way). I understand the comparison to Addict, but on me Addict smells rough and "jagged". Like the notes aren't really blending together, but instead are sitting on top of each other (if that makes any sense, lol)... kinda incomplete. On the other hand, with Trouble its as though theres this smooth, creamy vanilla base that harmonizes everything so well. I just love it. Smooth, sexy and sweet, all at once. I can't believe some of the things people are picking up from this, so obviously try before you buy.. Gotta love chemistry. Lol.

This is a warm and sophisticated vanilla fragrance, and definitely a cold weather fragrance. I think the other reviewers who found it "cloying" tried in the summer... In the warm weather this fragrance really turns on me -- beyond cloying, smelt like old incense/sweat, not too pleasant. In cooler weather however, it is heavenly, I get constant compliments on it. Excellent staying power.

Goes on as a lovely, edible, warm vanilla, almost like an elegant oriental creamsickle, with the creamy white and the gentle citrus. Unfortunately, it dries down past a wonderful vanilla incense into a pasty, baby powdery vanilla incense that ages me way beyond where I want to be. On the SA its a gourmand with elegance and style. On me, it's one great big URK after dry down. Urk is not sexy.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Trouble is a spicy, warm oriental with a pleasant vanilla base that never gets too cloying on me. In general, it's that vanilla note that makes me like this one although the days when I overdosed on vanilla anything are long gone. Maybe this is why Trouble actually reminds me of some cheap Yves Rocher scents that I wore in my youth, maybe Venice or Ispahan. Trouble is dark, soft, without the overpowering edges that come with some orientals; but the same quality makes it slightly murky, unfocused. It's not bad and it's not great. I wear it without a frown but once my sample spray is gone, I won't replace it.
