This is an Eau de Cologne featuring galbanum, lemon, tarragon, and oakmoss. It smells very similar to Houbigant's new Colonge Intense, and reminiscent of classic Vent Vert and Ma Griffe: green, herbal perfumes. Eugenol, Cinnamal, and Coumarin are listed in the ingredients--notes described as cardamom and Amber---add a bit of spice along with all the citrus notes, as well as the oak moss and treemoss Evernia Prunastri and Furfuracea base notes. The coumarin and spice, apart from taking the edge off the intense green of the galbalnum and tarragon, don't add much warmth or sweetness.. Birch tar salicylates also smooth the sharp greenery. Patchouli is listed, but is not prominent: it seems to be real patch functioning as a true fixative. Supposedly, there is jasmine in this, but I'm not picking it out, either. I guess it's providing brightness if not sweetness. There is no bubblegummery here. No vanilla, root beer, musk, cedar, sandalwood, or oud. Dry, bitter, green, herbal, citrus, moss, with just enough cardamom, Amber, jasmine, and birch to keep it from smelling like a dirty sock. Dries down kinda soapy. Hard to over apply it. No great sillage, so so longevity. Good stuff, a bit boring.

The notes list for this and another Bois 1920 scent have been somehow mixed up. The notes list above is for Vento di Fiori, and the Vento di Fiori page has notes list for this one.

From Bois 1920 site, the notes are:

Top:
Sicilian Lemon,
Cardamom, Tarragon
Heart:
Jasmine, Galbanum,
Patchouly
Dry down:
Amber, Oak Moss,
Siberian Birch

Info correct 6/10/15, hope it helps make sense, my nose felt very confused upon seeing the notes on here!

I agree with Cheramy - this is indeed an old school leather chypre which reminds me very much of the Caron's Accord 119

Come la Luna Bois 1920 is exuberant and emotional flavor !!! This perfume is like dark and mysterious night, night of "animal" passion))))
Come la Luna is a one of the favorites among consultants from the Bois in 1920 . Unisex perfume, but more for men (myself would not buy))) with excellent longevity and very big silage.
It is interesting, that this perfume revealed on blotter something slightly similar to Sisley, and on skin- very similar the Bandit.

Cheramy nailed it, I completely agree that this is a leather chypre. And this list of ingredients looks wrong. It's got a lovely citrusy herbal opening which really emphasizes the greener aspects of sicilian lemon, underscored by tarragon and I smell pepper. Underlying this is spicy mentholated coriander which creates a bridge to incense, patchouli, airy rosewood(?), jasmine, and a deeper leathery accord which combines a dirty labdanum and oakmoss (Evernia Prunastri extract on the list of ingredients). Come la Luna smells like the bright citrusy top of a Miss Balmain with the leather of Cabochard but a bit lighter in weight, woodier, and airier. I do smell all the notes listed, emphasis on rosewood and patchouli in dry down, also a dark woody note I associate with ho wood essential oil. Very natural smelling with good sillage in first hour.

The style of fragrance is not very popular now but I would say this is a lovely updated version of the green leather chypre. It's flaw is that it lacks distinction as a fragrance personality. It has a lot of pretty parts that transition beautifully with great raw materials, yet each part is a little indistinct. Not the moon--but 'like' the moon. However maybe the name tells the story, and that, combined with quality of materials, makes up for its lack of a memorable accord. Here's its progress: a beautiful citrusy/ spicy/ herbal opening to charm--like the bright full moon, which wanes as the coriander arrives, slowly dispersing until it leaves a dark, mossy leather base, like the new moon. This disperses into airy woods reminiscent of dawn. And its easy to wear.

Lastly, if you are curious about vintage leather chypre EDTs, this is a good version that nicely represents what they are all about. $99.99 on Amazon!

Come la Luna is an old school leather chypre in the vein of long discontinued Ellipse by Jacques Fath. Or more current Fetish by Roja Dove.

One BIG misunderstanding: the notes listed here are for Vento di Fiori, NOT Come la Luna.

Unlike others I really do believe this to be purely feminine, not unisex at all. Let me tell you why.
When I smell "Come La Luna" I'm taken back few decades, this smells very vintage and old school, I could almost swear I get oakmoss.
"Come La Luna" is very citrus heavy, the opening is sharp and almost herbaly bitter, but soon it settles to a very sunshiny scent - sweet mandarin and gentle spices on top of slightly bittersweet amber. The drydown gets more soapy when woody notes appear. All the way it stays feminine, well of course a male could pull this off, but I'd be taken a back with the reminder of 80ies feminine powerhouse which peer out from "Come La Luna".

Mediocre silage, won't fill a room, but you'll turn some heads. Longevity very good, 10 hours and counting.

An opening of seemingly pure pepper, it began a bit unpleasantly. After some time, some citrus and woods appeared, but not enough. This perfume was far too masculine for my taste. When I am out in public, I often stop dead in my tracks when I hit a cloud of men's cologne, and I sniff around wondering who is wearing such offensive sillage. I don't know why people talk about women's perfumes as being cloying because the main offenders to my nose are always heavy men's fragrances. Anyway, Come la Luna smells just like them. I can't fathom paying so much money for this. Not a fan whatsoever.

I think Gesch and mister_chaz summed this up perfectly- very perceptive reviews! At first application, I wasn't sure if I liked it exactly, but I can say that about many fragrances. It's worth it to let it sit and develop on your skin for the next hour. It warmed and mellowed into something really enjoyable. It's mostly woods on me, backed by incense and then the spices and patchouli with just the slightest citrus notes- although I wouldn't have pegged them as citrus, just something that gave it a little "lift." It sweetened ever so slightly as I wore it which made it become a bit more feminine- however, I'd still classify it as unisex for sure. I agree with gesch's note about this one having the same feel as Hermes: Merveille. It's distinguished, sophisticated and smells expensive. Perfect for cool temperatures, but I doubt I'd reach for it in warmer months. A nice surprise in the end!

Hey,in my opinion it has a more soft opening than Chypre Palatin probably becuase it has not aldehydes thus it is less crisp than Chypre but it has much better drydown. The fragrance stays pretty much the same which is great because the freshness of the first whiff is there plus the incense-amber combo which gives depth and sweetness takes the perfume to the next level. At last something unique plus versatile.

It is Come la luna, not da luna. I like this quite a lot thought not my style, it is like walking in the woods one summer morning after a long night rain, the smell of pine trees and wet leaves. It would smell delightful on an intelligent sofisticated woman with a smart casual oufit, sexy in an unobvious way but also on a man, one with a strong presence and some other .. aaah .. stuff:))
I am going to combine it with Very Irresistible Sensual, both have a distinct aromatic trade, I wonder what the result will be..to be c...

I also find CLL to be a very unisex fragrance...Totally agree with "gesch" above about "the scent reminds me of walking in the woods, hiking and afterwards settle down in a meadow and enjoying the soft sun and watching the leaves... (It's parallel how the smell develops)"...just bought this fragrance a month or so ago and I really do like it...has great staying power and even towards the end it smells great to my nose.

This could easily work as unisex fragrance. On me, it's mostly woods, spiked by coriander and citrus. I get a glimpse of nice patchouli as well. It starts strong, but gets subtle over the time. The scent is classy and "expensive", and I very much enjoy it.
It slightly reminds me of Chanel Cristalle EDP, although they differ from each other (Cristalle is greener and more feminine).

in addition to my first review I'd like to add, that it reminds me strongly of Hermes: Merveille. Not in smelling the same but to me ClL has a lot of the same character and aura than merveille.
I enjoyed wearing it once. But just on weekend, going for a walk, staying out in parks. I wouldn't buy a whole bottle, since I wouldn't wear it often enough, since I have already lots of scents for that occasion.

Come la luna - a beautiful allegory, which I would transfer to another perfume/scent.
ClL opens with a really old classic fashioned scent between citruses and spiced up leathery wood.
I say old fashioned, but in a sophisticated and not outdated meaning.
I liked to try it:like refreshing my nose and mind, but do I like to smell like this? Not really, it just doesn't suit me now. At least not the first half hour. Then it mellows down and the spicyness settles more, green wood notes mellow it more down and it smells divine.
Hopefully I will grow into it.

Like mellybee I think the scent is definitely on the verge to masculine topic - on a somewhat outdoorsy type of guy who isn't into the artificial and vanity side. The scent reminds me of walking in the woods, hiking and afterwards settle down in a meadow and enjoying the soft sun and watching the leaves... (It's parallel how the smell develops.)
And here goes my imagination again...

I'm sorry to see that it isn't classified as unisex, I think it'd be great on guys!

The citruses spiced up with the coriander and the pepper in the opening make me sneeze and I can't get rid of the thought that I'm wearing an after shave. It's just too masculine for my taste.
