How do you like it? I was really expecting to enjoy it based on the reviews I'd read, but it left me cold. I was expecting something with a more pronounced chypre vibe than it turned out to have. Also, it lasted about two minutes on my skin. It's definitely one of my least favorite fragrances from the Exclusifs line (along with Gardenia).
I screwed up when I said I wanted this one in extrait form. 31 is very well crafted but ends up smelling pretty conventional hours later. This morning I have my house sweater on and it still has Bois des Iles
lingering from weeks and weeks ago and the hint of it makes me so happy in a warm, content way - so if a perfume does that to me then I have a benchmark.
