Bois Et Musc Eau de Parfum
Bois Et Musc Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Serge Lutens. The notes of this fragrance are Atlas cedarwood, beeswax, saffron, musk
Ahh, Bois et Musc! We have a particular fondness for this unfairly overlooked gem in the Lutens Bois series, which wears like a sunset in smudgy golds and pinks. Bois et Musc is a soft, rosy cedarwood diffused out into a cloud of musk and sweetened with a judicious touch of spice (the notes say saffron, but we also smell a gentle nutmeg, cinnamon, and perhaps even a smattering of cumin). Far woodier and less syrupy-fruity than its siblings in the Bois series ? Bois de Violette and Bois et Fruits ? Bois et Muscs may actually be closer in spirit to the original Shiseido Feminité du Bois than the current Serge Lutens version.
More than scent, however, Bois et Musc is all about texture: its musk is velvety and beeswaxy, while its cedarwood is silky. Not as dirty as Muscs Khoublai Khan but not nearly as clean as Clair de Musc, Bois et Musc is, for us, the happy medium of Lutensian musks. It is sensual as hell but in that comfortably discreet way that makes people wonder if you’re wearing perfume or just smell particularly good. And when you’re wearing Bois et Musc, you most certainly do.
