Only the extrait version matters. The EDP is a far cry from anything from the 20’s as this is supposed to be.

I have always felt that I am a bit of a philistine in that I don't appreciate Bois de iles as much as I should. I have the rue cambon trio of parfum extrait (Bois de iles, Cuir de Russie and gardenia). I also have sizable decants of Bois de iles EdT and Cuir de Russie EdT. IMO, Bois de iles is mainly aldehydes, ylang ylang, musk and something that vaguely induces a sense of car sickness …Read more

I wore an entire half milliliter today, which would have made me unbearable in almost anything else, and could barely smell it. What I could smell was awesome! Sweet slightly powdery old wood. But when I put on hairspray after work to go out, all I could smell after that was green apple candy from Fructis, and nothing of the entire tester bottle of very expensive perfume.

I bought a sample of this in the parfum as opposed to the edt in the Les Exclusifs line. The parfum is beautiful and very unisex. It smells like a walk in the woods in autumn with some gingerbread sweetness included. I have been told the edt is more woody.
If you like this but are looking for a little more oomph I suggest Cuir de Russie which reminds me of Bois des Iles with some leather …

Very much disappointed: this is the Holy Grail so many people rave about ??! It's nice but by no means a head-turner, IMO. I agree with the previous review as regards the sandalwood smelling thin and synthetic. This fragrance barely lasts on clothes, and vanishes very quickly on skin. It feels diluted, VERY diluted. Well, I'm aware that my review is rather negative; let me think of …Read more

I wish I could give this a higher rating but this perfume doesn't last at all on me. Like KittyC I ended up with a faint sandalwood dry down which was nearly imperceptible. Initially, there is a wonderful blast of aldehydes-- very much like No. 5 which reveals a heart of lightly spiced sandalwood. The sandalwood is nice and has a creamy quality but also smells somewhat thin and synthetic …Read more

This perfume reminds me a teeny bit of #5. It must be the aldehydes, but I'm not sure. It really is a beautiful sort of everyday scent though. It's refined and mature, but I can see women 30 and over wearing it best. It has an intensity to it, but it really isn't cloying at all. I wish I were better at describing scents as to the actual notes, but this scent certainly upholds …Read more

No. Not for me. I can't smell it. Three big spritzes from a large decant on to freshly moisturised skin produce a faint burst of roughened wood and a fizz of cola. That dies in a couple of minutes, leaving almost no trace on my skin, and almost no sillage other than what I might expect if I had just showered with sandalwood soap. I wish I could be transported to bliss like so many other …Read more

I wish there was a maybe for "would you buy this product again", as I am on the fence about whether or not this fragrance is really for me. I bought a decent sized decant of the EDT from TPC and have tested it several times over the last 6 months or so. I'm giving it 4 stars because I do appreciate it and I do think it smells very good, but I don't really find myself wanting …Read more
