Niche perfume retailer Luckyscent launched the Decennial collection in 2012 to celebrate the store's 10th anniversary. They collaborated with two of the industry’s top perfumers – Andy Tauer and Jérome Epinette – to create a perfume passport to Los Angeles.
“Decennial truly captures our city of Los Angeles in all its energy, laid-back nature, diversity, complexity and controversy,” said Adam Eastwood, co-founder of LuckyScent.com. “Fragrance e-commerce began 10 years ago with LuckyScent.com, and we became the virtual Spice Road for the world’s most innovative and captivating scents. The journey continues…” said Franco Wright, co-founder of Luckyscent.com.
Bois Bourbon was created by Jérome Epinette and features notes of saffron, cinnamon, lavender, heliotrope, black rose, cedarwood and beach birch. It is an eau de parfum, edp and has been discontinued.
The final fragrance in the Decennial Collection follows on the same aspect of constructing a flawless accord which re-creates something specific. Want to know what Bois Bourbon smells like? Imagine owning a bourbon distillery and after you have decanted the bourbon from the barrels they were aged in you destroyed the barrel and picked up a shard; that’s what Bois Bourbon smells like. It is liquor soaked wood and if that sounds good to you, as it does to me, Bois Bourbon is definitely your perfume poison. M. Epinette constructs this bourbon accord from saffron, lavender, heliotrope, rose, and cinnamon bark. The metaphorical barrel is made up of cedar, birch, and oak. Put them together and you have whiskey soaked wood.
