“Walk Through an Autumnal Forest”

CHANEL : Bois des Iles

by Beaux (1926)

First woody perfume for women. Originally with Mysore sandalwood, skillfully reformulated in 2007 by Polge. Originally created by Beaux, inspired by Tchaikovsky's Pique Dame opera.

Medicinal, bitter spa-like lemongrass, then woodsy hazy feel refracted through the aldehydic prism; dry vetiver-sandalwood dry down.
