    Question How Do You Pronounce This Word in French?

    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.

    Here ya go with feu: http://www.forvo.com/word/feu/

    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."
