Outstanding and an Absolute Masterpiece
The parfum version of Bois des Iles is one of the most marvelous things I have ever smelled in my life. It might not be my signature, but it's one of those that I can not live without. It smells like all the notes listed, but somehow all these notes enable the sandalwood to stand out and shine. And it doesn't smell chemical, in a world where so many perfumes smell like chemicals these days, even many Chanels. In comparison to the EDT (the one right before the new EDP), it is more concentrated, rounder, a tad sweeter somehow but not sugary sweet, and it lasts a long time. Sillage isn't enormous, but it's comfortable and certainly is there if someone were to smell you up-close.
