Pierre Guillaume - Bois Blond
Bois Blond opens with an aldehydic sweet green floral accord—an interesting take on galbanum—before settling into a grassy, woody main phase. The amber/musk base is more of a support for that than a strong colorant, so while the pyramid suggests a sort of paglia e fieno oriental, Bois Blond is more of a light outdoorsy scent, like a stroll through the country on a mild day.
The good news is, it’s beautiful. Alas, it’s also somewhat ephemeral, which could explain why it’s been discontinued. Still, worth finding and applying liberally.
