For years, I have been searching for a true honey fragrance. I used to have something by Perlier, which I loved, but since it has been discontinued, I had to make due with hand creams and other body products. I read, re-read, studied and contemplated the many (mostly negative) reviews of Miel de Bois online. By luck, I stumbled across a brand new bottle on ebay and bought it blind. I was hesitant …Read more

When I read that this smells like urine to some people, I knew I had to try it - for the challenge and the novelty, at least.


It's pretty far from urine on me, thankfully, but it does have that vague animalistic note that keeps it from being too pretty or polite. Like most Serges, it has great lasting power.


I get mostly honey with a spicy pepper note, but …

Notes: Guaiac wood, oak, white honey, wax, animal notes, iris and hawthorn.

This fragrance opens with a white honey note whose realism is increased by a beeswax note. The honey is crystalline, sweet but not overly so, flowery and radiant. Underneath I see pungent woods and last but not least interesting animal notes as the base. The initial accord is all about the interplay of airy and …

A warm honey fragance with a spicy undertone. Quite nice to use in Autumn or Winter. Lasts longer than other Serge Luten perfumes.

This is my favorite honey fragrance with just enough other notes to keep it from being cloying and sweet. Warm & sensual. It is heavy though so apply with a light hand. And don't attempt wearing it in hot weather either. The best thing I can say for this is my husband - who is not a fan of strong perfumes - loves this on me.

Enough descriptions have been said by all the other reviewers. This definitely is a love-it-or-hate-it scent. I got a sample from a SA from SL counter along with my purchase. Very interestingly/ strangely, it smells almost identical to my female dog's natural body scent.

Milky honey and peppery wood. It's a fairly true honey, but it's sweeeettttt and it doesn't morph at all. Just honey and wood, the whole time. It's not bad, but I don't like it nearly enough to smell like this, certainly not to put down money to smell like this. It's the textbook definition of 'eh'.

I do get the dreaded cat pee/B.O. note if I spray this liberally, but it is a soft, warm, spicy, floral, animalic honey that blooms beautifully when I dab just the tiniest bit on. The most real, raw honey I have tried so far and it is toned down by the dry wood that Lutens does so well. This juice is extremely potent and lasts well over a day on me.

Yes, this is honey alright, and something that smells vaguely like cherries (?) in the drydown. Quite simply, these are the only notes I could detect. Clean, slightly sweet, not repulsive, but not for me. It is a very fresh scent though, probably would be a great spring/summer scent for those who can bond with it.
Edit 3/9/2010: Oddly enough, this is growing on me. It has the …

I'm not a honey lover, but this perfume made me reconsider. It's very long lasting and has great sillage, the best of any SL I've tried. It's a nice, sweet scent but with a touch of freshness that makes me feel as if I just came out of the shower. Comforting and invigorating at the same time, it's a perfume I can imaging wearing anytime, but mostly at daytime. Not worthy …Read more
