Here's what other people are saying about Bowmakers...
Dang it. I really wanted to love this, because every part of the description sounds tailor-made for me. And of course as a cellist I was excited about the concept. However, on me it smelled like I hoped it would for the first 5 minutes, and then transformed into a vinyl, plasticky, industrial paint-like aroma that I had no interest in smelling. Make sure to try this one in person because there is some weird chemistry going on.

Wearing Bowmakers and simultaneously transported to two distinct placetimes in my life. The first is my first time picking up the bow resin for my violin and smelling it as I ran it across the strings. The smell and stickiness stayed on my hands for hours, and I used to sit and smell the resin while I studied its texture and properties, The other is the sound of classical music in rooms lined with mirrors, bars, and pine floors covered in resin. As we walked into the room, we stopped at a small cardboard box full of crushed resin, and ground the bottoms and points of our toe shoes into it, generating both the scent and the sensation of grinding resin beneath our feat. It''s beautiful and realistic.

Bowmakers smells like the inside of an instrument case, and for me, that is one evocative, nostalgic scent. I only wish this had better staying power-- it was almost imperceptible after 3 hours of wear.

A brilliant evocation of place and an absolutely gorgeous wood-and-resin study. I don''t recall any more nuanced study in woods, and that lovely amber is a deft way of keeping us from looking for that (currently cliched) smokiness that woody scents tend to reference. (And that varnish note must be experienced to be believed.) Bowmakers is one of those scents that will cause folks to ask not "what''s that fragrance?" but "ooh, where have *you* been today?"

I love resinous scents and this one is fabulous. What I love about it most is its warmth. The varnish and pine resin is rounded out by the amber... and the woods in this are deep. The dry down on me, leaves something like a patchouli, not a dirty patchouli but that warmth that is in the center of many earthy scents. If you love CD&G perfumes, you will really love D.S. & Durga, I find all their scents brilliantly composed yet wild. They push the limits of what we traditionally think perfumes to be. This one is my new signature scent.
