Feminite de Bois

I am having a long term affair with Feminite du Bois.

Sure, when I first encountered it, FdB was both attractive and eyebrow raising...a combination of captivating and offputting elements.  But I dared to try it again, and it became beautiful and complex, and I knew right away I'd have to have more.  A swap, and a larger amount came into my possession.  I applied with a bit less caution, and found more to explore that way.  More of the wood came out, along with a sort of fruity element...and the realization that this one morphed as appropriate with weather and mood.

So, I have a partner I'm always happy to join on the dance floor.  Many perfumes are kind of one occasion/situation affairs--good for a perk me up, or a special date, or an important business meeting.  Feminite du Bois is more of a me scent, one that gently lifts my spirits and accomodates my moods.  Which makes it a bit more than a "skin scent," a bit less than an "occasion scent," and a wonderful expression of me.

It's beautiful isn't it- and so unsung outside the world of perfume addicts.

Rose, it is. I fall more in love with it as time passes.

It's kind of plummy at times...though I don't think that's the issue other people have with it. I'll take that back. I don't want my issues to become your issues, or you to think that I expect you to take on my issues, or for my issues to get in the way of you expressing what your issues are....
