I Wish The Party Never Ended...
Bois Bourbon opens with a fabulous combination of dark cinnamon spice and deep cedarwood that comes off as very much like the smell one would expect from a boozy Bourbon-laced cedarwood cask. The boozy, almost gourmand spiced cedar is enhanced by just the faintest hint of Gothic rose in the heart, combining with an almost bitter-sweet saffron spice to deepen and enhance the dark woody nature of the scent further. During the dry-down, the booze-laced cedarwood softens and begins to recede as a powdery, almost almond-like heliotrope joins the fold and takes the fore late. Projection and longevity are both excellent.

Bois Bourbon is quite the amazing scent early-on. While tobacco is not a listed note (and indeed it probably contains none), the early and middle stages of the scent's development very much remind me of the smell one gets when entering a fine tobacconist. The dark cinnamon spice giving off a tobacco and bourbon vibe, and the cedarwood resembling the scent of cigar boxes within. I could definitely see one enjoying wearing Bois Bourbon while smoking either an old traditional pipe or a fine cigar, as the two scents complement each other so well. Unfortunately, the fun comes to an abrupt end as the slightly powdery heliotrope softens the scent and dispels the illusion during the dry-down as the party of excesses comes to a close. That said, it is a great journey getting there and what a great time was had at the party while it lasted. Bois Bourbon earns a very good to excellent rating of 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5.
