Keiko Mecheri Bois Satin ~ new fragrance

Keiko Mecheri Bois Satin

Niche line Keiko Mecheri has launched Bois Satin, a new vanilla-focused oriental fragrance for women. The last releases from the brand were 2013's Savile and Sedona Blue.

Keiko Mecheri favors vanilla in her creations. A crisp citrus opening of Italian mandarin creates surprise. In heart, lush floral notes, wrapped around precious woods, sublimate the dark gourmand facet of Vanilla Absolute. An under current deliciousness reigns... [sic]

Additional notes include saffron, jasmine, rose, suede, patchouli and amber.

Keiko Mecheri Bois Satin can be found now at MiN New York, $115 for 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Really liked this perfume when I tried it at Esxence. The opening is lovely and saffron is very potent in Bois Satin, nicely blended with amber and suede. Definitely in my top 10 from the fair in Milan

      Good to know, I’ll try it when I have a chance. The citrus-vanilla combo got me thinking: does it compare to Shalimar, somehow?

      • lucasai says:

        Yes, it’s in the philosophy of Shalimar but the scent is different of course.

          Then it will be the first one from this line I will try.
          Happy Easter, Lucas!

    I like this fragrance so much. Many things I love are in it: vanilla, saffron, and a complexity underneath that makes a price reasonable by today’s standards. Amazing that it is considered unisex as I favor feminine. This is on my eventual acquisition list.
