I like the Mecheri line and since Keiko is intent on releasing very civilized renditions, I assumed that Genie de Bois would be in keeping with the house mentality. As expected, there's not a rude or caustic note to be found in the vicinity.
Genie de Bois is an uncomplicated floral woody. It leans on the feminine side, but not overtly so. I would have no qualms in wearing this and it feels suited for office, casual or even a frivolous night out. It wears light, but that doesn't mean there isn't substance here. There's substance all right.

Now, do I like the violet rendition? I have to say yes. It's one of the better ones I've worn and for comparison, I'd say that it's on the other end of the spectrum from Grey Flannel. Keiko's version of the note is very supple and maintains presence in spite of this.
Once again, an appreciative thumbs up from Aromi for Her Softness, Keiko and Genie de Bois.
