If someone asks for a dupe of Feminite du Bois or any of the other Bois series from the Lutens line, I will be recommending this one. As others have commented below, it is extremely similar with the cumin and woods aspect. It doesn't have the same sillage or longevity but I actually prefer it that way. Plus, you can't beat the price and the packaging is beyond cute.

This is a solid twist-up perfume, the size of a lipstick, from the cheap-and-cheerful Crazylibellule line. In this case, cheap does not equal "low-quality." To the contrary, the perfumes in the Les Divines Alcoves series are quite unique and very good. Dans Tes Bras is my favorite. Just like its name suggests, it is a warm embrace of a fragrance, mostly musky, animalic sandalwood and peach. I think of it as a halfway-point between the current version of Rochas Femme and Serge Lutens Bois et Fruits. It doesn't last for an incredibly long time, a few hours at most, but at this price and convenience (tuck it in your purse, no spilling) who cares?

I don't know how to analyze fragrances (I'll leave that for the experts). I bought 4 of the Crazylibellule perfume sticks and I love 3 of them. This is my favorite (so far). It's a soft scent that is not overly sweet. The fragrance stays close to your skin, I'm sure anyone close to you can detect it, but it doesn't "scream" at everyone when you enter a room.
I also like the Encens Mystic (incense) and the one named On Cloud Nine (summer flowers). I thought I'd love Vanilla Lemon Pie, but I can barely smell the lemon and it fades very fast.
I'll probably buy more of these - they're inexpensive and fun. (Got them from b-glowing, through Amazon.)

I could hardly believe how much this warm, spicy scent resembled Lutens' own Bois et Fruits! Dans te Bras is a wonderful melange of cedar, peach, plum, musk and patchouli, with a dominant cedar note underscored by ripe, sweet fruit. This is the most autumnal fragrance from the new Les Divines Alcove Collection, and one of the best ones. Notes: juniper berry, pink berry, peach, cedar, patchouli, amber, musks.

Les Divines Alcove Collection
Top notes: Juniper berry and pink berry
Heart: Peach, cedar and patchouli
Base: Amber and musks
I think there is one of those animalic musk accords in here, as on the right person this could be a spicy warm musk, but on me, and though it only lightly reminds me of it, itís like someoneís trying to cover up a minor case of bad body odour and sweaty socks, kind of in the same way that Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan did, although that was more furry animal. I think those juniper and pink berries added to the musk are doing it. Part of me almost likes it, and it does get nicer as it dries down, but I canít wait that long.
