Van Cleef & Arpels has launched a new unisex perfume in the Collection Extraordinaire called Bois Doré (Golden Wood(s))...
The composition is signed by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin of Firmenich who wanted to showcase the Tonka Bean material like you do a gold nugget, drawing inspiration from what can be perceived by some as natural golden reflections in an olfactive profile.
Several of the notes are: pepper, mineral notes / cedarwood essence, vanilla / tonka bean absolute, white musks.
Because this fragrance works quite a bit on a subtext level, you need to live with it before proposing a review of it. It initially evoked to us some visual imaginings, translatable into (prequel) photographs.
Next, we'll offer a detailed olfactory review of the scent.
