"Like a true precious, crafted creation, I imagined Bois Doré to be a fusion of wood and the brightness of a Golden stone..." - Fabrice Pellegrin

As the new chapter in the Collection Extraordinaire, Bois Doré, gives centre stage to a precious bean. It is a fruit with accents of tobacco, that looks as dark as burnt wood: tonka bean. This composition creates a fusion of tonka with wood, like a nugget of gold turned into a jewel.

"For this creation, I was inspired by a beautiful story, the one of the Princess of Nerola whom vowed a boundless love to the amara orange tree..." - Quentin Bisch

Inspired by the delicious scent of lemon and bitter orange flowers, perfumer Quentin Bisch pays homage to a dream-like vision of Neroli. A cloud of weightless petals, as refreshing as a bowl of citrus fruit, enveloping you like a breath of warm air, with the opulence of a flower blooming in the sun. On the skin, Néroli Amara seems to have the flourish of a Cologne at first, refreshed by pink berries and cypress accents. It then reveals its true nature, tumbling into floral voluptuousness. The dream comes true when the trail envelops us with subtle wisps of fragrance evoking the Mediterranean.
