L'Artisan Bois Farine was launched in 2003, created by Jean-Claude Ellena. The first fragrance launched in the journey series, it was his memory of an unusual tree - Ruizia Cordata - in the Reunion Island forest. This tree was a white aromatic tree with a red blossom that smelled like flour. The result is what is affectionately known as the "Play-doh" fragrance. This is an odd, gorgeous, cuddly scent that is so addictive to keep smelling! It takes you back to places you want to go over and over again.
Reviews of L'Artisan Bois Farine
From Basenotes - "If I were a baker my kitchen would have many trays holding the many rising dough balls that would later become my world famous peanut bread. Tubs of freshly slivered almonds and my signature amaretto glaze complete the scene. Bois Farine."
From Basenotes - "There is finally a dry, warm vanilla – dusty, like the smell of realms of paper in the closet. I smell the blue-white milk, tepid and fatty, already put out in cups lined up behind the teacher’s desk, ready for our snack time, collecting dust as the school room clock’s long hand inches inexorably slowly towards 11am and freedom."
From Makeup Alley - "It also kind of smells like peanut butter for the first 10 minutes or so, which was an unexpected surprise. Not that I mind; I love peanut butter. Anyway, as I realized I could not stop periodically sniffing my wrists, I began to truly appreciate the beauty of this unassuming fragrance. The addition of wheat works perfectly here with the medley of wood notes and elevates it into something special. It's so indescribably comforting."
