    Serge Lutens : Miel de Bois (2005)


    Serge Lutens has always used a fascinating honey note in his most stunning creations. In Miel de Bois, (Wood Honey), the essence is a veritable nectar, “rough, hard white honey, bursting with little seeds”. Its luminous warmth is bound to the strength of wood. But the designer didn’t want a soft or crystalline wood. So the honey has been wedded to a dry wood, with an almost abstract fragrance, and notes of ebony bark, oak and gaiac wood. A surprising combination for both men and women in search of new sensation
    First a dry, brittle wood that breaks in your hands: ebony, underscored with gaiac and oak bark. Then comes the sap, the intoxicating honey ether that wafts in the air like an alchemy of woody notes. The base note is beeswax, sprinkled with iris and hawthorn.



    Top note : Ebony, Gaiac Wood, Oak Wood
    Middle note : White Honey Ether
    Base note : Beeswax, Animal Notes, Iris, Hawthorn

    My SOTD is Terre de Bois EDT from Miller Harris. After an initial sharp, alcoholic opening, it settles down beautifully with vetiver, galbanum, juniper, and sage most apparent, supported by a deft touch of spices, ambergris, and patchouli. If the EDT is this good, I've got to imagine the parfum might just be 'da bomb!

    It was hard to make a decision this morning, and I went through sniffing a dozen plus bottles trying to decide. In the end Nina Ricci's Signoricci seemed the one calm enough, but I'd been craving Diptyque's craziness before that.
