Intense and with personality
What a divinely balanced scent! Tuberose, patchouli and nutmeg all very well dosed with a very sweet base (vanilla), making the perfume very different and charming. Worth every penny!

It will be necessary to pay attention, as it may be very feminine for some men (although it is masculine, for me it is unisex). It will be more recommended for young audiences (although age is just a number), as maturity is not the "face" of this fragrance.

It is worth knowing if you like a sweet floral style (perfect on cold autumn and winter days). The performance is average, but on the one hand it can be an asset as it is a sweet / floral and slightly feminine perfume.

Whoever has the opportunity to compare it with the female version, will realize that the only difference is in the (light) woody touch of the male version. The female version is even more sweet and floral. I emphasize that I only paid 15 € for 80ml, which is a bargain.

Boujee and Nonesuch
Bois Soleil, or Sun Wood, is a fragrance that offers a floral, earthy, woody, spicy, and balmy olfactory path that is warm and sweet in all its evolution. It is a fragrance that will ask you to focus only on it, inspired by vintage, but the execution is a contemporary, elegant, modern classic scent—softly spoken with lots of character. A perfume that is difficult to capture in a family of fragrances, with woody and amber notes but also a dark chypre accord because of the mix of patchouli and nutmeg. The tuberose and the neroli give the perfume a rich floral sensation. Its full official composition lists notes of neroli and nutmeg on top. Then, in the fragrance's body, we have tuberose and woody accords. The base combines notes of patchouli and vanilla absolute. There is also a velvety, undeclared dose of musk that envelops the entire olfactory pyramid.

The opening is ultra-zealous in woods, spices, and tuberose. It touches the skin with a strong spicy and floral look, where nutmeg shades scream, with a graceful touch of neroli. Initially, a zing of freshness from the neroli oozes, not too citrus, and then you get the spiciness from the nutmeg. The spicy nut blends with the initial alcohol and creates an Alexander cocktail vibe, dusted with grated nutmeg. I am fond of nutmeg, and I love it freshly grated on dishes. Just in case, nutmeg will subdue a bit, anyway, it will not fade away completely and eventually move in the background.

Once it’s stabilized, the heart softens to a sexy yet strong yet soft mid-tone with the woody accord and slightly spicy tones of tuberose, which oozes moist and dewy with a creamy touch, almost reminiscent of the velvety dough of a cake. The absolute of tuberose, at first, brings a milky side. However, over time, the spicy side of the beginning loses strength for a more floral and indolic body. The creamy look continues with something that looks like jasmine. The tuberose blooms and basks in all its glory. It is a freshly cut blossom that intermingles with a woody accord, soak and deep as forest mist after a summer rainstorm.

After this phase, sugary and powdery patchouli emerges that brings the sweet side of vanilla, tasty and almost medicinal, anticipating the scent that permeates until the end. The chocolate patchouli steps forward and seeps underneath with vanilla to keep it from getting too strong while forcing other mates to move backward. For the rest of the perfume’s journey, Bois Soleil sets unusual and oblique notes against vanilla and cream: one-moment custard cream, pistachio mint ice cream, the next, another steaming chai, before settling into a luxuriant anisic woodiness.

Shades of leather and controlled use of nutmeg warmth round off the odor profile and make it very much an indoor, centrally heated affair. The nutmeg and vanilla combination is especially pleasant, without becoming too gourmand for my tastes. It’s a very well-balanced scent. The warm, dark, and resinous notes make me choose this perfume during the cool and humid days of the colder seasons. I can wear safely it in the office, but also on free days, at the weekend, and in the evenings with friends.

I based the review on a 80ml bottle I have owned since September 2020.

Clearly a unisex perfume. The difference between this and the Bois Soleil Women is the woody notes. Nice scent with average performance.
