Bois Naufrage Eau de Toilette by Parfumerie Generale at The Perfume Shoppe. Silhouette: Its creator, Pierre Guillaume, was inspired by the famous artwork "Nude on Driftwood" (1971) by French photographer Lucien Clergue. Bois Naufragé translated means "shipwrecked wood". It is a sweet (fig), warm and intimate fragrance…not beachy in the least. Of course, if you like comfy and lazy summer day scents this fragrance is for you. The composition includes the following notes: Carob tree, also called "fig of Egypt" (Egyptian fig Tree), sea salt (Fleur de Sel ) and Ambergris. Bois Naufrage Notes: Fig tree, ambergris, and fleur de sel accord (Vetiver oil fraction, orris absolute, mint, neroli oil, hedione) Bois Naufragé offers an entirely new take on beach scents: Cool water, warm sand but with a sensual twist. The Carob tree is indigenous to Camargue where carob trees grow and fowl come to roost near the salt water marshes along the coast of deserted Mediterranean beaches. PARFUMERIE GENERALE - PIERRE GUILLAUME This code name, which gives a humorous take on the initials of perfume creator Pierre Guillaume, hints at the very free creative spirit behind this collection of perfumes started in 2002.True alternatives to all those mass market products, with their bland, standardized formats aimed at winning over vast numbers of consumers, Pierre Guillaume’s creations exhale their strong character with distinct and immediately recognizable scent identities that make no compromises. The bold and inventive Pierre Guillaume style is further enhanced in each Parfumerie Generale creation by technical prowess inspired by his background in fine chemistry: a captive ingredient, or one that is totally new, or a unique production process specific to each fragrance. By exploring new process such as "photo-affinage" (photo-refining or smoothing olfactory peaks by ultraviolet radiation), his creations are imprinted with a "vibrant" or "melancholic" feel. Because luxury is not a question of excessively using an ingredient and because the quest for uniqueness should not result in overly intellectual fragrances that are impossible to wear, and since contemporaries and provocation do not necessarily go hand in hand, Pierre Guillaume does not merely try to create scents but also emotions as a reminder of how intimate the bond between a person and their perfume is.
