Bois Farine


Pin It Fancy

Release Date: 2003
Perfumer: Jean-Claude Ellena
Description: Bois Farine was created by renowned perfumer, Jean-Claude Ellena. This compulsive fragrance is the product of his encounter with a unique tree in the Reunion Islands in the Indian Ocean, a rare and now protected species, reputed to have magical powers. This tree is specific to the Reunion Islands and its red flower smells like baking flour. Ellena was struck by how similar the smell was to the scent of his grandmother’s hands as she baked bread in the kitchen. Bois Farine is the result: an extraordinary union between enchanted wood and the comforting aromas of baking ingredients. As odd as it sounds, Bois de Farine is beautifully constructed on a base of precious woods and iris that gives it depth, powder, comfort and addictive wearability.
