The word bois in french means wood, the fragrance Figure 5: Bois belongs smack in the middle of the wood family. Additional notes of tobacco, leather and resin support the hearty timber to deepen the experience of a magical, mysterious forest. The fragrance evokes an old growth woodland where one might hear whispers and echoes of mystical creatures from long lost legends.
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, remind us of how important trees are to our fragile eco-system and life here on planet Earth.
