Today's review: Jeux de Peau by Serge Lutens
This is what I expected Bois Farine to be. Wheat-y, milky, sort of like a bakery. Unfortunately, Bois Farine has that awful sawdust note. This, however, does not! I'm still not terribly keen on it, as it's quite an unusual smell. The main notes are wheat, milk, sandalwood, licorice, and coconut. I was hoping to get more licorice and coconut, but alas...mostly just milk and wheat. I can see why this is a comfort scent for many people. I've even seen people saying it smells like a newborn baby or breastmilk. I've not smelled either of those things so I can't confirm or deny, but that does seem interesting to me. I'm not super excited to finish my sample of this since I don't really love it, but it's one I'll definitely try again. It's an experience, at least.
