L’Occitane’s Eau des Baux is an excellent example of a classic perfume with a unique blend of aromatic notes. It opens with a creamy green wood accord, then features a fig tree, cypress, and incense, before settling down to a warm, rich base. The composition is so well balanced, it doesn’t even require an explanation of its ingredients. The fragrance is available for $55 for 100 ml.
Eau des Baux is a strong, masculine fragrance with a woody, vanilla base and a hint of spicy, aromatic, and warm notes. It is a warm, sweet, and woody scent that works well in mildly warm weather. The fragrance’s Fragrantica notes accurately reflect its unique character, but the blend is not harsh. It’s best for mature men. For those who want a fragrance that evokes a sense of timelessness, this isn’t a good scent for you.
As for longevity, Eau des Baux doesn’t really last long. The amount of time it lasts depends on your skin chemistry, the time of day, and the fragrance. A linear fragrance lasts for several hours on the average, while a complex one will last for a day or two on the average. Some reviewers have noted that the fragrance is very sultry and overpowering, while others say that it feels too strong.
If you’re looking for an Oriental/amber fragrance with a classic, masculine scent, consider L’Occitane’s Eau des Baux. Its sweet and balsamic top notes are paired with the rich and deep woody base notes of cypress and incense. The fragrance is a classic oriental and was launched in 2006. The bottle’s marketing materials say that it was inspired by medieval knights and the cypress trees in the area.
L’Occitane’s Eau des Baux is quite similar to Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, but the L’Occitane version has more stages in its development, and a more intense vanilla scent. It also smells more like a vanilla pipe tobacco, so it’s more affordable than the Tom Ford version. In fact, it’s more complex and rich than its cousin.
