A cologne for a rainy day
[Short Review]
This is a very nice fragrance, although I qualify it as quite subtle. It seems to have an EDC concentration. The bottle size comes in a generous 200 ml in a Spongebob square shape.
I love the scent. It's a very pleasant Oriental fragrance. It's not intrusive. Its scent together with its subtleness will get you some compliments for sure.
It opens with a pleasant semi-sweet coffee note that will be present till the beginning of the drydown.
In the heart notes, we detect strong notes of rich lingering sandalwood, blended with balsamic elemi resin (Amyris wood) that will last till the evolution final, and will persist during the drydown, although as a fainter accord, and outshined by the semi-earthy strong patchouli that will make itself dominant in the bottom phase.

A couple of comments:
- I consider the performance as under average: Less than 4~5 hours longevity with 3 sprays; One arm length sillage at the most; It projects for 1~1.5 hours.
- Nice inexpensive price - 200ml bottle - €13.50 in Showroomprivé. The big 200 ml bottle is so inexpensive that you may spray the juice freely at your will. This way you will get acceptable performance with this very alluring fragrance. The amount of compliments is far superior to what you may expect with such an inexpensive fragrance.
- Damn fantastic notes with roasted heavy scented coffee and Amyris wood. During the evolution, I also detect a herbaceous green and dry faint note similar to vetiver.
- You need at least 6~8 sprays on the skin to add 50% more performance: but if you want to take advantage of the fragrance subtleness just do the usual 2~3 sprays. You can always respray a couple of hours later. You should also spray twice on your clothes to help the performance to ramp up.
- Even if this fragrance is advised for men, I really do think it is a unisex scent. The perfume DNA is similar to a mixture of three Thierry Mugler perfumes, but for a fraction of their individual cost. It really opens like A*Men Pure Coffee and halfway its evolution becomes similar to a combo of Angel Eau de Parfum and A*Men till the end of the drydown.
- Although it suggests you vibes of the three above mentioned fragrances, in reality, it is a very unique fragrance. I don't know any other fragrance with this magnificent blending of those Mugler juices and, at your own choice, decide for the subtle behaviour with fewer sprays or adding some stamina with more sprays. Nevertheless, it never reaches neither the Thierry Mugler fragrances projection, sillage and longevity, nor the price per application.
Do not consider Bois & Pluie as a Mugler clone either due to its different blending evolution or because it causes different reactions both in yourself and in the people around you. Overall this fragrance is just a bit sweet. It's not as gourmand as the mentioned Mugler perfumes. Thierry Mugler scents are all about screaming "I AM HERE!", while the Pascal Morabito cologne just whispers "would you mind?".

Note: If Pascal Morabito would double the performance with a true EDT or EDP concentration, I would rate it as a fragrance not to miss.

Bois & Pluie opens like A*Men Pure Coffee, but later becomes similar to a mixture of Angel and A*Men, till the end of the drydown.
