Bois Des Iles

image.jpeg

Bois Des Iles is luscious (Chanel 1926).  It’s one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful fragrances I’ve ever smelled.  Bois Des Iles is perfection with classic florals wrapped in a gorgeous aldehydic embrace.  It’s earthy yet totally elegant, and utterly alluring – as if wind and light are playing with sweetly scented flower petals.

Top notes:  aldehydes, bergamot, neroli and peach.  Middle notes: jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, woody iris and ylang-ylang. Base notes: vetiver, sandalwood, benzoin and musk.
