An elegant and genderless woody fragrance that pays tribute to Indonesia’s exquisite temples.
Bois d’Indonésie is inspired by the intricate wood carvings, expressed through the mellow richness of incense and agarwood. Clarity is brought through freshness of delicate and airy bamboo and lotus, balanced with the gentle warmth of tea and nutmeg. Density and shadow is captured through rich woody notes sitting front and centre, with a savoury of drydown of vetiver and amber.

A first (and lasting) impression of Bois D'Indonésie is its inclusion of oud, and it is brought into the perfume in the cleverest of ways. Oud can take on so many qualities, based on where it is from, how it is processed, in what state the original agarwood was found, etc. Some ouds have a distinctly airy, almost menthol-like minty-ness; its something lovely to behold, and it's this kind of oud you'll find here. It has a sharp, spearmint freshness immediately followed by a deep woodiness (with a whole myriad of notes tucked inside: coffee, saffron, cinnamon, cedar). Tantalizingly, this oud is kept in a perfect place: something to notice, and something discrete.
