    I just bought a dram of perfume oil called Feu de Bois. How do you pronounce that? Also, what does it mean? (it's a warm, woodsy fire-like scent.)

    Thanks! :) :)

    Means Wood Fire or Forest Fire. Not sure how to explain the Feu pronunciation but bois is pronounced Bwa.

    Try this--hold your nose and say the word "foot" but leave off the T. :) The rest is easy, as other posters have described.

    What does it mean? It means, "If you don't like the smell of this perfume, then you're about as intelligent as a shiitake mushroom." ;)
