Serge Lutens launched Feminite Du Bois in 2009. It is almost an exact duplicate of the Shiseido fragrance bearing the same name that was popular in the 90s. I do not find it to be too feminine (I...

What has happened to you my lovely? I ran out of my hoarded original version of this beauty, and the real perfume it was, too, so had a little sniff in that most wonderful of London's department...

Like many, I fell in love with this scent during the 1990's, when I had a love affair with all things Shiseido, especially their skincare and fragrances. Back then, and even today, Feminite du...

How I love Feminite du Bois. No I have never tried the original Shiseido version . I adore plummy and peachy scents mixed with woods. This one rounded with cumin ( I find I do love cumin in my...

I used to love and wear the original Shiseido version of this and was devastated when they discontinued it. The SL version is similar but a little less rich and long-lasting. I still love it...

I am a huge fan of Dior's Dolce Vita, which I believe is close to the Shiseido version of Feminite du Bois. A friend gave me this one and I've been wearing it a lot. It just appeals to me. It is...

This is one of the most intoxicating, atmospheric, voluptuous fragrances out there - indeed full of shape and curves and soft angles, and character. There's a sultry smoke to this - it is the...

It is hard to describe how I felt when I first smelled this perfume but I just knew I had to have it. I find the woody smell of the cedar comforting and I feel this scent suits me better than any...

I worked on a Shiseido counter part-time when I was at university (way back in the late '90s). Though I was directed to sell Feminite du Bois (distributed by Shiseido then) I personally thought it...

I wore Feminite du Bois by Shiseido many years ago. It is such a lovely, warm scent. Perfect for winter under a cashmere sweater. Cedar, smoke, incense. Very Zen, peaceful and content. On a lark I...

I ordered samples of both Shiseido and SL versions. Any time something is relaunched some people say it is "watered down". I find the SL Feminite du Bois very similar, perhaps freshened up with a...

Surge Lutens relaunch of FDB is a soothing, relaxing fragrance that seems to fit the mood of delving into an intense day of reading on a leather recliner and contemplating on the mysteries of life....

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. ...

Notes: cedar, musk, vanilla, rose, orange blossom, ylang ylang and peach. A scent characterized by the vanilla, yang yang and rose notes; a barely noticeable cedar acts as a base. This fragrance...

I am a huge fan of the original Shiseido version, but I like the new release too. They are remarkably similar and I can't tell the difference unless I test them out side by side. This one is a...

I'll admit, I avoided this Serge Lutens fragrance based on the fact that he created Shisedo's Feminite du Bois as well. I figured... 'same fragrance' --why bother?" Well boy was I wrong. Unlike...
