"An iron fist in a velvet glove, " Bois d'Hiver is a seductive ode to contrast, where spicy, powerful woods and powdery musks intertwine with astounding fluency to create a scent that can only be described as equal parts striking and smooth.
Bois d'Hiver opens with a hypnotically spiced blend of pink pepper and cardamom, both sourced from Givaudan's industry-best Orpur naturals. The electricity of the spices gives way gradually to a robust cedar-and-sandal woodsiness rounded with smooth, clean florals, while a rich Indonesian patchouli lends just the right amount of earthy body. In the drydown, a base of powdery, exquisitely fine musk counterbalances the woods, producing an alluringly symbiotic fragrance both modern and compellingly easy to wear. Your contradictions are what make you dynamic. Shouldn't the same go for your fragrance?
