Starts out spicy and woody, and then dissolves into a vetiver soliflore that is rather uninteresting. The spicy start is nice, though.

This review is for the now discontinued Sycomore EdT.

Yesterday, I finally tested the Sycomore EdT sample gifted me by a kind and generous fellow fragrance lover (thank you again!), and I wanted to share my impressions which may be more helpful to the ladies than they will be to the gentlemen, but who knows? The gentlemen may also find what I have to say useful.

Upon initial …

THIS is what I was hoping for in the Chanel Les Exclusifs line! While Gardenia was a disappointment, Sycomore is everything I look for in a fragrance: it's interesting, subtly sexy, stylish and elegant. And it lasted well on the skin.

There's a wonderful, soft smokiness to Sycomore that I immediately fell in love with. I adore smokey scents. There's a lovely, slightly …

A very, very natural smell. A smell of pine trees after rain in hot weather. Unexpectedly natural and beautiful.

Foliage and tall trees and rich, gritty dirt, soft smoke and damp greenery, and all the best smells of a forest ramble--but the hiker is wearing Prada boots and an Hermes scarf. This scent of a woodland spirit turned posh socialite; a dryad who quit the forest living on the Upper East Side.

I bought a sample of this parfume but it did not smell anything.

I bought Bois des Iles and got a sample of Sycomore which I didn't like that much at first... It actually grew on me and I ended up loving it. It has this strange smell of something akin to sweat, weird but great. On my wish list.

I was excited to try Chanel's Les Exclusifs Sycomore for quite a while, having heard so many good things about it. I do like vetiver, and Sycomore is said to be an homage to that note. On first sniff, I'm getting a pepper note and also something I can't quite identify, but that smells very like what most perfumers believe passes for a tea note. Have you ever put your nose into a …Read more

I got one of my biggest compliments ever, in public, from a total stranger, while wearing Chanel Sycomore.

Let me begin by saying I don't like or wear Green perfumes. At all. Except for Sycomore -- this is Green at its best. I don't like green foliage-y perfumes, I don't like vetiver, I don't like chypres. But Sycomore is made so well, that I do wear it once in …

Green androgyny.


I voted yes on repurchase, but there's a single note in this that gives me pause and knocks this down to a four: juniper.


Love the smokey wood. Love the vetiver. If you love a wallop of smoke, green, wood, and vetiver, this one's for you. The smoke is really earthy, sometimes dry, sometimes a little wet in the first five minutes, but …
