The result is juices with extreme accuracy, full of emotion and poetry. If you are a lover of fine perfumery and you dream of a warm and unusual essence, Bois d’Amande is for you! Like a dream catcher,
Like all the perfumes in the Extraordinary Collection, Bois d’Amande is presented in a sober and refined bottle. Surprising by the heavy weight of its glass, it is an absolute guarantee of luxury and quality. Its rectangular shape does not support any frills. The Almond Wood bottle captivates us with the beauty of its mirror black lacquering. Only a white label breaks its uniformity, while a small link is attached to its collar to bear the initials of Van Cleef & amp; Arpels.
Cedarwood as a central ingredient in the Almond Wood fragrance
The Bois d’Amande fragrance is the work of perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur. Here, everything revolves around cedar. It is the keystone of this exceptional fragrance. The cedar used by Van Cleef & amp; Arpels comes from Virginia and gives us all the beauty of a noble wood, between gluttony and delicacy. Gradually, it becomes more powdery or almondy. At its base, it is even accompanied by vanilla musks for a more animal and suave finish. “When composing this niche fragrance, I had in mind the image of almond trees under the Italian sun,” explains the perfumer in a press release. I wanted to create a beautiful contrast between the verticality of the wood notes and the irresistible tenderness of an almond accord as well as a vanilla background ”.
