The sultry seductress is a "smouldering wood" scent constructed around cedar and patchouli, two warm and noble essences traditionally used in men's perfume-making.
But in this case, like a tuxedo that enhances a woman's body, they embrace the softness of a sensual bouquet of jasmine and orange blossom caressed by white musk. A mallow note underlines the transgressive character of the harmony. Appearances are deceiving and the paradox becomes clear with the first impact in which bergamot and tangerine intertwine with the impertinence of pink pepper.
The notes feature bergamot, tangerine, pink pepper, marshmallow harmony, orange blossom, jasmine, patchouli, white musk and cedar.
Guerlain Boisé Torride is $250 for 75 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found now at Neiman Marcus. (via neimanmarcus)
