I am not generally a Duchafour or L'Artesan fan (notwithstanding my admiration for an older version of Almairrac's Voleur du Roses for a l'Artesan in 1993 or Giacobetti's Tea for Two), but I like this. I got it as part of a discontinued gift trio of three 15 ml bottles. I recommend getting discounted sets or smaller 50 MILs as they are likely to be slightly older renditions …Read more

The world is dark and, contrary to popular superstition, there is no moonlight to speak of. I hide amongst the wet, dead leaves of the forest floor, my hands grip the wet moss and there is fresh soil lodged in my fingernails. I am surrounded by groundfall apples...perhaps some strange hybrid of Cortland and something sweeter. I can smell the humidity in the air and my own cold-damp, frightened …Read more

I bought this unsniffed... After reading all of the fragrance notes, I could not help myself from buying because it sounded so perfect for me- cedar, honey, hazelnut, and sandalwood... I finally got it in the mail, and... it was an epic fail. Now... I love unisex scents, but this smelled like aftershave, kind of like that note (can't figure out exactly which note) in TM Angel like I …Read more

This is one of the only L'artisans I'd buy, because the others are so fleeting there would be no point. As other reviewers have already said, this is a nutty scent. But what's different with my chemistry is that the herbal elements are amped as well, and I get a unique, fresh-nutty effect. I don't find it masculine at all. And it's definitely not girly. It smells …Read more

This sounded like something I'd love, but it turns out Mechant Loup is one of those scents that my chemistry completely transfigures. I would have guessed it was composed of citrusy and herbal notes on top of musk, something modern meant for young men. Leather and tobacco, it claims? Maaaaybe, if I really stretch to notice them. Hazelnut too? Eh, I suppose that could be the sweet touch. But …Read more

I like the uniqueness of this fragrance because it doesn't remind me of anything else. Can't tell any notes, except perhaps the hazelnut, but it's a spicy, woody scent not in the usual ambery or cinammony way. It's not too warm, nor too sweet, but comforting nonetheless. It would be mouth-watering on a man, but it's not so masculine that a woman can't wear it. I …Read more

A very smart, savvy woman at Fred Siegal in Los Angeles told me this was her favorite perfume and she wears it. That said, this is a masculine scent based on its wet, tobacco scent with a mild and subtle sweetness.

Upon smelling it, it had a subconscious effect on me. Somewhere in my brain, I was calmed, just as I am when I smell Diptyque's Tam Dao. The cedar, woodsy, burned leaf …

Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find this heavily masculine at all (Passage D'Enfer, which came in second, started out much more masculine on me.). This one began somewhat musky but not overly so and I definitely picked up the hazelnut almost immediately. The drydown on my skin was heavenly..very soft, subtle, and a little sweet. Probably the most fleeting of all the L'Artisan …Read more

Well, my French is non-existent, so thanks to those who translated this title. I sure don't see the bad wolf in this one. What I get is licorice caramels, stored in a cedar jewelry box. It's really nice, but light and really is mostly cedar. Interesting. EDIT: I fell in love with the sample vial and was able to swap with a very generous swapper for a larger decant. Now I find that this …Read more

Topnotes are masculine. It then goes into a slightly honeyed fragrance that reminded me of Serge Lutens. However, it didn't have nearly the sillage or persistence, and hence the low overall rating.
