I have the original shiseido FdB bottle. I also have a large decant of SL FdB. The original, IMO is preferable, more complex, denser, less thin, more evolution, more rounded a fragrance than SL FdB. This is a collaboration between Sheldrake and Pierre Bourdon. Honeyed plum, spice. There is a cedar note to brighten the fragrance. I don't get any cumin, but my skin chemistry doesn't have …Read more

*PIC* I do realise this review is quite unconventional, but I would like to share. I recently bought a Schwarzkopf supermarket conditioner. It's not great or anything like that, but the scent! It is *exactly* like feminite du bois which has to be one of my most favourite perfumes of all time. I've actually thought about slathering it on as a body lotion? (Weird, I know, I know) :D …Read more

on my skin this is candied violets and dried plums, but not too sweet and a little smoky

also something pleasantly "old-book-scent" about it

new signature scent!

I just received this bottle. Was surprised to see it wasn't an atomizer but decided to decant into a roll on and a spray. I do not want to spill this precious stuff!
Bought it on it's reviews. I didn't think I'd like it as people that like a lot of the same frags. as I do didn't care for it
I wish I could talk about all the notes......All I can say is it is …

I hardly have the words to describe the ineffable beauty and 'truth' of this fragrance. In a strange way, it reminds me of a famous painting I once saw called "La Tentation de Saint Antoine." (The Temptation of Saint Anthony).
I see the image a woman of profound beauty emerge from the thick of the wood. The moonlight illuminates her rounded hips and ample heavy breasts …

Side by side comparison between Shiseido and SL's versions of FdB.

Shiseido version is the older one, and lots of folks prefer this over the SL's relaunch. Some says the SL is more costly. Other says the SL relaunch doesn't smell as great. So here we go: R wrist spritzed with sample that was given to me by a SA at a SL counter, L wrist spritzed with Shiseido bought …

This is for the vintage parfum. Amazing. I would love to smell the newer version for comparison, which I'll try tomorrow, but this is pure heaven. The cedarwood, velvety plum and soft spices make this a very memorable scent for me. It takes me back several years in time. Somewhere from my past I remember this like it has been my own since its inception, which is bizarre. It smells as …Read more

The closest I can get to a signature fragrance and in my opinion, the most versatile out of the Bois series. It is the perfect blend of plum, candied fruit and cedar. Very unusual, feminine and sophisticated. I have tried both versions and prefer the Shiseido version, which is less sweet than the new release under the SL name but it doesn't last as long. This may have been discontinued but …Read more

I received a decant of this, and I've been dying to try it. Well, I finally did. In short, I don't love it and I don't hate it. The sharp cedar smell is immediate once it's applied. On me, within a few minutes it settles and I smell cinnamon, clove, and a hint of cedar. After about an hour, I'm left with geranium, fig, and clove. I don't get the cumin notes that …Read more
