Description

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."

    Almond Bomb w/Complexity

    I don't get this dough-y or flour scent more powder than flour. I get an almond bomb with some rounded bread-y notes. This is a relatively common almond scent, it reminded me of a particular ski resort's toiletries--quite common. I will say that this also has a quality of "Oriental" spice scents, which my beloved ski resort's toiletries did not. It's a bit more complex than it seems upon first sniff.. It seems to me that these scents (which remind me of like my mom's 80s perfumes, Opium type smells) are the seeds of the almond. As it sits and warms to skin, and opens up with air, these more "harsh" notes round out and open into the softer almond and bread smells. I supposed if I really think about dough I can almost smell that, but it's not a top note for me.

    I'm not smelling the flour

    I was hoping for something dough-y but instead I get what smells like fig fragrances to me. If were testing this blind I would have thought "Philosykos" by Diptyque. Also similar to Nest White Sandalwood to me so maybe the white woods and fennel are just more prominent on my skin. The dry down is soft and musky. It's still nice but was hoping for something unlike anything I have smelled before. Definitely unisex and office friendly as is fairly light.

    Accurately Named!

    I ordered this because it so often gets compared to things like Jeux de Peau (which I adore) and other fragrances with a "bready" note. To my nose it is much more aptly named -- it is truly "flour" -- a bit raw and uncooked in the open. Personally, I was looking for something with more yeast...

    Beautiful scent...

    I just got a sample of this and I can not stop smelling my wrist!!It is really hard to explain...musky and almost like an oatmeal type of scent(actually-it reminds me a bit of those Aveeno oatmeal bath packets-in a good way)I really like it-I will probably buy a larger size decant and try wearing it for a week or so and see how I feel about it after a while.
