Essential Parfum's best-selling Bois Impérial is a smooth, subtle wood scent that doesn't fail to turn heads and elicit compliments. Bois Impérial opens with freshly crushed and spicy Thai basil leaves and the peppery and grapefruit facets of Nepalese Timut pepper absolute, a brilliant combination that contrasts perfectly with the bold woody signature of the fragrance. A freesia note adds sophistication and Haitian vetiver oil adds a touch of rich earthiness.

From Perfumer Quentin Bisch 
“I created this fragrance around a precious and extraordinary wood: Akigalawood.  Adorned with fresh spices, it is a great woody note made of contrasts, between patchouli and Thai basil.” 

From Essential Parfums
Majestic Akigalawood is the signature of the fragrance. It isn't a type of tree, but rather an ingredient that is upcycled from patchouli through a biotechnology process. Its unique spicy-woody character is enhanced here by a rich Indonesian patchouli oil and Ambrofix, a powerful woody-ambery note.

Very Good

Smell of woods

Bois Imperial smells exactly like the woods. I can smell the Thai basil, pepper, and patchouli. I can smell hints of the freesia and vetiver as well. I feel like a smell like an earthy goddess.


Nice scent
