An intoxicatingly beautiful scent
So I was looking at some white floral suggestions for Spring, when I told the sales assistant that I was quite fond of pear when blended with white florals. She went a little off the beaten track when she suggested Bois de Gaiac et Poire, or as it is usually referred to as, Close Your Eyes And... yet I am rather glad that she introduced this fragrance to me.

Initially I found this fragrance rather rich, spicy and intoxicating. It had an interesting, soft incensey vibe, which would probably entice me more in Winter. The pear wasn't instantly noticeable on my skin, nor was it any different on the card. I found the overall blend very oriental and woody.

It's hard to review this fragrance because it is so complex and changeable. It's slightly dark, yet its moderate sillage makes it very soothing. The most dominant accords to my nose are gaiac wood, custardy heliotrope, almond, cinnamon and pureed pear. I also detect a warm vanilla accord in the drydown.

I am quite taken with Bois de Gaiac et Poire, and I find it ticks all the right boxes. Even the packaging makes me smile, with a twig attached with a ribbon on the outer box.

I can't say that this fragrance is particularly fruity nor citrusy, it also doesn't strike me as a typical floral. Woodsy and musky with a touch of vanillic warmth is a more apt description.
