From Basenotes - "If I had been blindfolded while testing this scent I never would have guessed it was by Guerlain. Tiny Jasmine and cardamom. The patchouli, cedar, oud, and myrrh are dry - windswept even. Saffron comes and goes. This mellows on my skin after a couple of hours into an Almost mellow sweetness. Guerlain has succeeded in creating a desert scent."
From Olfactoria's Travels - "Songe teeters on the edge of too masculine, too dry for me and I wish I got more of the jasmine that is listed in the notes. Over time jasmine does come into its own though, and time and again I am surprised by the tender beauty that lives inside that old leather bag, you just need to open it."
From The Non-Blonde - "My favorite aspect of Songe d'un Bois d'Été is the tan leather that wraps and holds all the other elements together. The leather is luxurious but not wimpy or overworked. It's a bit ragged and distressed, more of an antique scabbard than a designer handbag. This leather lived and traveled, had a conversation with some well-loved Lutens perfumes and came out better for it."
