Bois Naufrage Eau de Toilette
Bois Naufrage Eau de Toilette is a fragrance by Pierre Guillaume Paris, Parfumerie Generale. The notes of this fragrance are Fig tree, ambergris, fleur de sel accord (Vetiver oil fraction, orris absolute, mint, neroli oil, hedione)
In French, bois flotté is driftwood, buffed to silkiness by the sea; naufragé is shipwrecked. Pierre Guillaume’s unusual inspiration for his new scent is a black and white picture by the legendary Arles photographer Lucien Clergue. In the 1971?Nu au bois flotté?? female flesh and driftwood mingle until their smooth curves form a visual continuum. In Bois Naufragé, green and salty notes ? one vegetal, the other mineral — echo the memory of the sea that smoothed the wood, while the suave seawater facets of ambergris conjure sun-kissed skin, with a hint of tanning lotion washed away by a swim. Born in the wilds of the Camargue where carob trees grow and flamingos come to roost near salt marshes along miles of deserted Mediterranean beaches, Bois Naufragé offers an entirely new take on beach scents: mineral, vegetal, animal, as warm as the sand and as cool as the waves.
