Bois d’Arménie belongs to Guerlain’s Exclusive Collections, a range of fragrances for aficionados of rare scents, those who appreciate noble raw materials and refinement down to the last detail.
A surprising Bois d'Arménie, plucked straight from the Guerlain perfumer’s imagination. Feel your soul rising with the clouds of incense. Feel your heart beating to the rhythm of gaiac wood. Languish on a carpet of benzoin and succumb to the fevered embrace of patchouli…
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. It is magnified with a stylish vintage bulb atomizer,with an ON/OFF position for ease of transport. The bottle nests in an amethyst “leather feel” case (that can be turned into a jewellery box as you wish).
This warm and enigmatic interpretation of “Papier d'Arménie” paper incense casts an enchanting spell of frankincense, enriched with aromas of spices, wood and benzoin.

Bois d'Arménie makes your soul rise with the clouds of “Papier d’Arménie” paper incense. This olfactory connection is partly explained by the presence of benzoin, commonly used in the 19th century in Armenia and featured at the heart of the new creation.
A creation that must absolutely be smelled on the skin, for both women and men.
