1 thought on “Bois d’Ambre”

  1. Woody but effervescent, edged with a herbal bitterness. Ginger is very prominent in this scent, rendered sharp and entirely realistic instead of candied. The background is a hazy mix but I can pick out inky oakmoss and bitter nutmeg in particular, as well as chocolatey tones that could be vetiver. Muskier projection with the drydown, along with tart fruity notes that sweeten the ginger note and offsets its pungency. Unusual but well blended.
