The perfume that launched a thousand ships. For me anyway. Bois de Violette was my first bottle of Serge Lutens. My first dropping of an ungodly amount of money on a fragrance. My first...

Ordered a sample of this. Have been wanting to try this for years. Smell the non-sweet violets and the cedar/woods. It's too soft for me. I have dry skin that devours fragrance. Would rather...

I love violette, and woody perfume. this perfume opens up full violette and calm down into a warm spicy wood. Only minus it last about 5-6hr but it is pure pleasure.

Wow, I don't know how to describe this scent because I have never smelled anything like it. After reading Luca Turin's review, I had to give it a go. It's very unique and to me really does smell...

Sexy, dark violets, perfectly balanced - never cloying or candied and never so intense as to hit people over the head. I find it too intense for warm weather or active days, but love how long it...

There's a period of time in the beginning when the violets are just too much, but once that settles down, this is a beautiful violet-wood fragrance, perfectly balanced and blended.

Candied violets and cedar. Starts out playful and nostalgic, babyish in a vintage way.The violets are effervescent and floating, just loosely tethered to the very grounded cedar. On me, the violets...

I liked the idea of this being part of the development of FdB , which I loved , this however I only like. It just doesn't have the beautiful complexity of it's 'mother' nor it's depth. I feel like...

My favorite Serge Lutens. Sweetened (but not overly sweet) violets and woods, mainly cedar. So smooth! It's warm and snuggy, perfect for winter. Strong yet close to skin, just the type of scent I...

For violet lovers, Feminite du Bois with a dash of violets on top. Very nice, but for my violets I think I prefer Insolence.

Cool-weather, bookish, mystic violet. Nothing young or shy about this scent. Well made and has an interesting progression. My skin pulls just a bit too much cumin from it, and it covers similar...

I live in the Northwest, where in recent years summer never seems to come. Bois de Violette is one of my go-to perfumes for those rainy spring, summer and autumn days. This perfume encapsulates...

I do not wear perfume everyday, though I have collected quite a few scents. When I do reach for a scent, bois de violette is my choice 95% of the time. I bought my first bottle in Paris, and will...

Lots of cedar with the violet, so definitely test if you don't completely adore cedar in all forms. As with many SL fragrances should be dabbed, not sprayed. A light application leads to a delicate...

Dark sexy Violet. Because her name is Di Bois, the power of the cedar balances her ethereal sweetness, giving her a spine, a character- becoming interesting... I have tried Penhaligon's violet,...

Deep, woodsy, plummy violet - especially gorgeous and comforting in very cold weather. It took me several tries to fall in love with it, though - so sample first.

I'm not very fond of violets but this is one rare violet that works on me, perhaps because of the semi-thick cloud that satisfies my sweet tooth during the heart notes. After the big welcoming by...
