Hi there Posse! According to Fragrantica Féminité du Bois came originally from the Shiseido range in 1992. Serge Lutens was originally a photographer and brand creative. Also in 1992 he went to do his niche thing with the original four wood scents Les Salons du Palais Royal, which went on to become Parfums-Beaute Serge Lutens. His eponymous perfume and cosmetic house was always under the Shiseido banner but off to the side a bit, till the recent buy out. It didn’t move across to the Serge line until 2009, not long after I became aware of it but didn’t try it till much later, maybe 2012 or 13. Today I’m thunking an older sample vial, maybe 2015?
