Hi hoschhti, thanks for the post! I am a big fan of Bois d'Hiver, and of many of Ayala Moriel's scents. She is a craft artisan, and I like to support good work of that kind. Bois d'Hiver has lovely frankincense notes along with the wood. Ayala also did a similar scent called Fete d'Hiver. I own Bois and have a sample of Fete. Both are perfect scents for the holiday season.
