Perfume has long been associated with romance – indeed, women rarely bought perfume for themselves back in the day, being nearly always gifted to them by an admirer. This tradition has resulted in many beautiful, dazzling and incredibly romantic concoctions from all corners of the globe. But when it comes to a truly seductive number that stops you in your tracks and sweeps you off your feet – Fragrance du Bois manage to surpass all expectations. Their For Lovers collection echoes the many aspects of falling in love: a duo of scents that pay tribute to the dizzy, ecstatic feeling of meeting The One, and subsequently not wanting to eat, work or even sleep...
Housed in bespoke, crystal glass bottles, these two highly concentrated extrait du parfum are designed to leave a lasting impression, perfect for him or for her or to share. Each one uses only 100% pure perfume oils and extracts that are of the highest quality and sustainably sourced.
Cavort – £285
Designed to mimic the first heady throes of romance, Cavort exudes spicy warmth with saffron and cinnamon blended with heady notes of geranium. As it warms up on the skin, it develops into a somewhat addictive floral heart, with notes of jasmine, rose absolut and orange flower – before drying down to a soft, sensual base of sandalwood and patchouli. Classic and intimate, this is the perfect scent if you’re after something which leaves a lasting impression.
- Head Notes: Saffron, Davana, Geranium, Cinnamon
- Heart Notes: Rose Absolut, Orange Flower, Ylang, Jasmine
- Base Notes: Indonesian Patchouli, Labdanum, Sandalwood, Indian Incense
Secret Tryst– £285
If you’re having a Lady Chatterley-style dalliance, or a perfectly respectable love affair, this scent will mimic the intoxicating, passionate highs that seem to dominate your every waking moment. It opens with bright energising bergamot, combined with enveloping notes of rose, cedar wood and vetiver, before revealing a rich base of patchouli, frankincense and vanilla. Rather than setting with the sun, this scent stays on the skin like the memory of the night before.
- Head Notes: Bergamot, Saffron, Indian Cardamon
- Heart Notes: Rose, Jasmin, Cedar Wood, Vetiver
- Base Notes: Patchouli, Frankincense, Cistus, Vanilla
