"Brown woods"? This Serge Lutens frag surprised me, and NOT in a good way. I was surprised with the strong violet note (which I don't care for) and the rather pedestrian nature of this frag. None of Serge's typical Moroccan spices and rich oriental goodness. The woods do come through along with the violet that never goes away. Have you noticed if there is a note you don't like, that is almost all you can smell and it lasts forever? The woods are somewhat nondescript, I don't recognize cedar, sandalwood, juniper, or any specific wood note, just a light, fresh, generic woodiness. This could easily fit in with the generic fresh modern scents in any department store.
I love so many of Serge Luten's frags, this one stood out for me, and not in a good way. And it's more expensive than the others?
