Here's what other people are saying about Bois Lumiere...
Ohhhh nope not for me. Something in here hit me right in the patchouli. Still dank even after scrubbing.

For me Bois Lumiere is all about the honey, which comes across as breathtakingly rich and realistic, with a provocative skank aspect or pong, as folks mention below -- to what degree, I think, will depend a lot on personal perception. Within the redolent, almost balsamic quality of the honey smell I can detect carnation, beeswax and cedar, especially, with sweet, spangly bits of fir balsam adding to the opulence. Long-lasting, great projection. I think I'm starting to love this....

Bois Lumiere is a witty response to that sickly-sweet honey trend a while back -- honey it is, sweet it is not. The opening is sage and juniper and a nifty metallic that replicates how one's face feels after a morning without eye protection in desert sun. The honey enters like a meteor strike, accompanied by carnation and...let's say "etc," because the other flowers are non-entities. That awesome pong mentioned elsewhere comes and goes, and happiness prevails throughout the sun-blasted land.

Incredibly reminiscent of Liaison de Parfum's "Resist Me." This is a little lighter, little dryer, slightly less headshop. It smells like one of those baskets of holiday potpourri which was supposed to smell like fir and mostly smells like filler.

I have become a little weary of all the new niche perfumes rolling out lately but purchased this one thinking..."Sure..its different,sure the perfume story sounds good...and guess what? they really are right this time! This is the first exciting fragrance I have purchased in ages! It is unique... It is very warm,lightly honeyed, woody...Bois Lumiere is really gorgeous .

I can clearly pick out all the notes described in this scent and they work beautifully together, but here's something that's not in the notes or the description: this is a skank monster! It is flat out the skankiest scent I've ever smelled. It's like if you took L'Air Du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer (which I love) and put it on a vagrant. That's not a criticism. I think it's the sweetness of the honey in it that contributes most and it's really wonderful--way more complex and naturalistic than, say, "Honey" by Marc Jacobs, which I found synthetic and annoying. This smells like nature in all its aspects. I felt a little self-conscious wearing it to work, but I like it so much I think I might have to go for the full bottle.
