Fragrance Boutique Special: Fragrance Du Bois

If I ever wanted a bespoke fragrance made, Fragrance Du Bois would be the place for it. Luxury covers all four corners of the room, from its posh, glossy all-black interior and gold accents, to the crystal chandeliers and lush velvet upholstery. It looks, feels and smells – well, it is a fragrance boutique – incredibly luxurious.

Clotilde, my consultant, begins by introducing me to the heart of Fragrance Du Bois’ scents – the famed oud oil, crafted exclusively from Asia Plantation Capital’s exquisite Aquilaria tree plantation. Deep, intense and complex, with a distinctive gold glow, oud oil is known as “liquid gold” both for its colour and market price. A gallon of oud costs one and half times more than a gallon of gold. It is at this point that I realise I am staring at a literal pot of gold. Gold that doesn’t harm the Earth to be exact, since Fragrance Du Bois only gets its oud from sustainable sources.

SMELLS EXCLUSIVE

To those with discerning taste, luxury is more than just a price tag. These days, when money can buy just about anything and everything, luxury refers to that which is rare — often with a beguiling artisanal heritage and is, of course, of exceptional quality.

In the realm of beauty, an indulgent regime does not necessarily mean owning an array of products from boldfaced brand names. A new wave of cutting-edge beauty junkies want lotions and potions that communicate something about their identities, similar to the way their clothes and accessories are a reflection of their personalities.

More Than Another Oud Perfume Company: Fragrance du Bois

Looking at the fine print that came with a sample of Oud Bleu, I read that the perfume house, Fragrance Du Bois, claims to use only 100% pure, sustainable, ethical oud; a claim that no other fragrance brand can make. Intrigued, I approached Fragrance Du Bois and their candid response was, "If you have some time, come visit our plantations and we will show you where our oud comes from."

Fragrance Du Bois, une nouvelle maison dédiée à l'univers du Oud

Lundi dernier, la confidentielle (mais pourtant bien connue des amateurs) boutique Jovoy célébrait ses 4 ans. Un anniversaire festif qui marquait l'occasion pour cette "ambassade de parfums rares" de présenter son partenariat avec une nouvelle marque: Fragrance Du Bois.

Inédite dans le paysage de la niche française, cette maison d'origine française est aujourd'hui bien implantée en Asie où elle possède ses propres boutiques. Mais Fragrance Du Bois a surtout fait du bois de oud sa spécialité, élaborant une gamme de parfums construits autour de l'huile essentielle qu'elle cultive en Thailande depuis 5 ans, dans le cadre d'un sourcing responsable.

Fragrance Du Bois teaches next-generation sustainable perfuming practices

French perfume house Fragrance Du Bois shared its knowledge of oud, the world’s most expensive and coveted essential oil, with students from Raffles College in Malaysia.

Fragrance Du Bois specializes in oud perfumes and produces the essential oil in its own sustainably managed plantations to ensure that it is ethically and responsibly sourced, making the brand an expert on the subject. The 45 Raffles College students were invited to the brand’s Starhill Gallery boutique in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in February to learn about the art of perfumery.
