Serge Lutens Bois Oriental was created by Christopher Sheldrake and Serge Lutens as one of the offspring of Feminite du Bois, the mother of Bois de Violette, Bois et Musc, Bois Oriental and Bois et Fruits. This is the aspect that was just cedarwood flowers and Moroccan spices. Bois Oriental is in the Oriental Woody fragrance group.
Reviews of Serge Lutens Bois Oriental from other noses that may or may not sniff like your nose does.
from thenonblonde - "The core and dry-down of Bois Oriental are all about warm sweet cedar, dried fruit, and a very spiced yet soft woody vanilla. While Bois Oriental definitely has appetizing foody elements I can't call it a full-on gourmand. There's far too much wood there to qualify as edible, which keeps things interesting. Bois Oriental has been around since 1992 (the same year Feminite du Bois and its offspring were released). You know that it means that things inevitably changed within the composition. I seem to recall a more prominent sillage, but who knows for sure (well, Uncle Serge does, but good luck getting a straight answer out of him). Longevity is excellent, though, and since I'm spraying from a decant (my fourth, by the way), the perfume clings to sweaters and skin with equal success."
from perfumeposse - "Violet, peach, plum, rose, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, musk, Atlas cedarwood, and vanilla. Besides Bois et Violette, it is one of my favorites of the boisees. A more transparent oriental with a light touch of gourmand."
