Cartier Eau de Cartier Essence de Bois description

Eau de Cartier Essence de Bois is a resplendent violet-based perfume, despite its name. There is no wood in this fragrance, only layers of violets, lavender, spices, and musk - with a soft hint of bitter citrus at the top.

It is a smooth, soothing scent, wearable both day and night with ease. A touch of oud in the heart firms up the florals nicely, without depriving you of the

Smells amazing,
It has a strong smell when you first spray it, but the strong smell goes away in seconds and then leaves behind a smooth great smell that lasts all day, even when I do heavy work I still smell the fragrance, so far I?m happy with this fragrance.

Smells beautiful
I was expecting a bit of wow but did not get it from this particular perfume. I think it smells beautiful but not for me.

I love this!!
I love this scent, it is better than expected. It has a nice woodsy smell with a hint of floral. Smells clean and expensive.

Too spicy for me
I prefer a more sexy floral scent but this was a little too spicy.

I like it (and I'm not a grandma)
I like it. A little goes a long way. The first time I put on too much and after a while it got annoying. It smells expensive and elegant.

This perfume is extremely sagey. After the sent fades you are left with hints of old church lady. This sent will remind you of going to Sunday School right after spilling a jar of sage on your dress. Definitely not a scent for the young at heart at all.

This is my first shipment and I am thrilled with this choice. I am not great with describing scent, but to me, this makes me feel like the queen of a mysterious and dark forest. Rich, definitely woody, and luxe. I love it.

This was the first shipment that I received. When I first tried it, I thought that I had accidentally received a cologne because of the musky smell. But then after a while I could smell the powdery citrus scent and it began to grow on me. I looked it up and found that this is a unisex scent so now I understand. This is a fresh clean scent with a hint of musk. I like it..

Love this. Definitely more on the masculine side, but it's so sexy. Makes you remember how sexy you feel when you wear your boyfriend's shirt or blazer. It's bold, so be sure to confidently strut your stuff in your stilletos when you wear it.

Not a terrible fragrance by any means; however, I had expected something a little bit more sophisticated from Cartier. This smells almost identical to Vera Wang's Lovestruck--a fragrance I already have, given to me by a friend who didn't like it. I tend to enjoy even stronger musky/amber/spice/wood scents and had anticipated this one to be closer to that. It's not bad, like I've said, just not what I had expected. It's a bit more floral than I tend to wear, especially during the Fall/Winter. Definitely wish I'd read the reviews on this one before I decided on it.

On me, this has a very sharp "perfume-y" smell that I don't care for -- it's not awful, but it's too pronounced for me. After a few hours, it does change into a subtle, sweet violet-y musk, but those first few hours are too intense for me.

This scent is okay. It doesn't last long on my skin or clothing. It has a standard perfume smell like when you pick up an old bottle of perfume and smell it.

This is a VERY powdery perfume. It doesn't smell nice at all. I tried it twice and it was just so overpowering. It reminded me of my grandma and how she used to shower in Poison. I don't think it's woody AT ALL. If you're going to wear it, definitely a night perfume.

It's mislabeled as a unisex scent so I got it on my cologne of the month. I put it on and was greeted with a cloud of perfume. I like to be fruity as much as the next gay guy but this is just over board. It's saving grace is the scent lasted an hour max

I honestly did not like the fragrance one bit. I picked up baby powder mixed with old lady perfume (a dark colored perfume). This scent was strong and would probably be better suited as a winter scent. It's very spicy and musky. Not a fan.

Beautiful fragrance but it just doesn't last on my skin. Wore this for a full week in Florida and I noticed it for the first hour and then it disappeared. Sniffed my clothes when I came back from my trip to see if it was still lingering on the fabric and there was no trace of the scent at all. It is a good thing that this is so portable because I found myself touching up frequently.
