Champagne de meh.
Champagne de Bois opens with neither champagne nor woods, rather a “muskissime”, soapy, and extremely powerful blend which is overall quite similar to the smell of Marseille soap. Just a bit drier, if that wasn’t dry enough. There’s also sandalwood, warm and creamy here, but most of all musky soap – by soap I mean nothing “bubbly” or sweet like bath soap, but rather a “purely soapy” note, so really dry and almost metallic. As minutes pass the woods emerge, with also something camphorous-aldehydic bringing Champagne de Bois vaguely close, in fact, to some vintage Chanel’s, but just to some extent (musks-aldehydes-woods): to me it’s still basically a really dry woody-soapy greyish galore with woody accents – and nothing really animalic by the way, just something halfway onions and sweat after a while. My two cents: really powerful, a bit tacky, too suffocating and linear not to be boring soon.

My fizz vanished in a spice market.
Why is this fragrance called Champagne de Bois?
I have no idea.
Doesn’t make any sense.
Champagne of Wood?
Granted, perfume names don’t have to be logical since we’re talking poetry here, and it must, in the perfumer’s mind at least, be a completely obvious translation of the scent.
Very different story here however.
Champagne, to me, means dry, cold, and fizzy.
Nothing of the sort hits my nose.
What I smell is a rich spicy amber.
Very spicy actually, and definitely warm.
It has good longevity and projects nicely, helped along by the heat of the body.
The drydown is sweet, resinous, woody and still very spicy.
Not a favourite but certainly a solid and well-put together composition.
