Bois d’Ombrie

Eau de Toilette

by Eau d’Italie

The Scoop
Imagine a hidden away curio shop filled with mysterious boxes. Boxes of all sorts - some intricately carved from exotic wood, some lined in smooth leather-- line the walls, each bearing the traces of the treasures they have cradled: Aged whisky, glorious cognac, Cuban cigars, rare spices, precious incense, honeyed narcotics. Aromatic traces that mingle with the dry, polished woods to create an intoxicating brew. This has the warm sweetness of mulled wine and the glowing radiance of a fire in the hearth. Rich and autumnal, with an intriguing touch of coolness from the iris that slips in and out like a visiting ghost, this is a deeply satisfying scent. Wood and leather, spice and cognac-- really, on a chilly night, could you ask for anything more?

Surprised to see its classification as ultra masculine. I usually tend to buy pefumes that are "very pink" on the Luckyscent scale, but this sample enchanted me as a piece of feminine sophistication and that of romantic dream. There's much of hot and rough Italian air to it. Definitely iris and tobacco... very unusual too!

Agree completely with the "campfire/bbq descriptions. Smells like someone who's been partying at a bonfire. Not a scrubber in my book, but wouldn't personally want to smell like burning trash. Yet strangley I still keep wanting to smell my wrist.Wonder if it would layer well with another Eau d'Italie frag.

On my skin, it opens green and ends spicy. Cool and warm. It lasts and lasts. Love it. Even in our Texas heat, but now I'm on the quest for some Mint scents.

Received a sample of this, and after giving it a few shots, ultimately, it really did not get along with my nose.

What a great scent. Very nice for this time of year. There's something very earthy, natural, and unique about this fragrance. It feels like it was created a very long time ago,and it takes you back there. Awesome.

This is a fantastic scent! It is one of those scents that is a symphony to the nose. I find myself smelling my wrist throughout the day. It may be too heavy for hot/warm weather. I see this as a Fall/Winter or early Spring scent.

Didn't work much for me. I usually like incense fragrances, but this had a really bad "campfire" smell, and not much more to offer. A "scrubber".

perpetual october bottled. signature scent.

I love this. Very sophisticated and professional, but somehow still warm. When I'm wearing it, I feel soothed... by midday I find my nose resting against my wrist, in the midst of everything. Whenever I've walked into a humidor, my eyes tear from the strong cigar smell. Somehow this fragrance references that smell but in a really great way. On me it's not masculine at all. Just really perfect!

This makes me want to cry. It's the polar opposite to Sienne L'Hiver, warm where Sienne is cold. It's somehow a familiar scent, comforting, but strange. It reminds you of a time and a place you can't quite put your finger on. It smells like the past. It puts me in mind of glowing beeswax church candles, old home-brewed remedies, dust and smoke and wood. It's glorious. Dark yet soothing, disturbing yet somehow warmly nostalgic. Very hard to describe as it appeals to your individual memory and all your senses, rather than just to the nose. Gloriously glowing for dark, foggy days.

Smells of a lovely, stately home library with antique leather books, polished mahogany wood furniture, a glass of cognac on the table, and a smoky wood fire in the fireplace. Calming, sophisticated, and utter class. Would probably best suit a man, but I'm a woman and it goes smashingly with a tweed suit on an autumn walk.
By Amber - from London on 9/16/2009
I'll offer a contrasting opinion to the one below and state that Bois d'Ombrie is one of the more interesting and striking woods + smoke fragrances I've encountered. Obviously high quality and definitely well-crafted -- there's a distinct campfire in the forest quality to its opening, but it gets smoother as time passes, leaning towards the patchouli and incense direction without turning into an outright incense fragrance. The inclusion of the tobacco note is a nice touch.

Just ordered this as a sample along with 4 others. Have to say this was the only one that did not work at all. My wife described it as a "dirty bar-b-que" and to me it smelled somewhat like an ashtray in the corner of a little old ladies parlor.
