The word bois in french means wood. Figure 5: Bois belongs smack in the middle of the wood family, with additional notes of tobacco, leather and resin supporting the hearty timber to deepen the experience of a magical, mystery forest. This is the fragrance of an old growth woodland where the whispers and echoes of mystical creatures from legends can be heard. According to Kleercut.net we humans have managed to eradicate 80% of our original old growth forests from "logging, clearing for agricultural land, and oil, gas and hydroelectric development."
Figure 5 Bois, like the fragrances Q and Sierra, is a reminder of how important trees are to our fragile eco-system and life here on planet Earth.
