Muguet des Bois

Year Introduced:

1936-1942

Top notes of aldeydes, orange, bergamot and green leaves; middle notes of cyclamen, lilac, jasmine, lily of the valley and rose; and base notes of sandalwood and musk

Advertising Slogan:

When you're in love, wear Muguet des Bois.

 

Muguet des Bois was first released in 1936 or 1942 depending on the source, but was popular in the 1960s and 1970s. Created by Henri Robert, this is a woodsy lily of the valley that is sweeter and cleaner than Diorissimo. Edmond Roudnitska, the nose who created Diorissimo, said this of Muguet des Bois:

I remembered that Coty had a lily that was called Muguet des Bois. No better lily note was ever made. It pushed the green note of the flower. As a lily note, it was magnificent. It was much better than the one I had made myself. I wondered how they had managed to create such a masterpiece in the thirties, with so little means. But it never became very successful, because it wasn’t a perfume one could wear." (quoted in Michael Edwards Perfume Legends, p. 113) I think that is because it is a loud fragrance and lily of the valley is a very hard note to wear.

A magazine ad read:

"Why a boy gives a girl flowers. He said he gave me flowers because flowers are soft and pretty. He said he gave me flowers because they’re something real and honest. He said he gave me flowers because those are the things I am. And I hope he’s right because that’s what I try to be. Everything natural, the way nature is. Even with the perfume I wear. Muguet des Bois. Which means, “Flower of the Woods”. And that’s as natural as you can get."

Muguet des Bois has been discontinued.

This is the original eau de toilette version.

  1. I could live in it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2017

    The first thing I thought on applying it: WOW. Fresh, clean, airy, light green, complex. Reminds me of being in a beautiful meadow full of clover, surrounded by linden trees in bloom. I imagine picking a flower and burying my nose in it. For 45 minutes I kept going back and smelling my wrist, saying "OMG, holy cow".. my skin seems to actually FEEL softer where I have applied it, but obviously that's just a mental illusion! The only sad thing is that it does not last on my skin for more than an hour, probably because it's an EDT, a lot less concentrated than the other vintage Coty samples I tried, which were EDP. I look forward to comparing this to vintage Diorissimo.
