Bois D’Argent by Christian Dior

June 14th, 2006

Bois D'ArgentToday I’m wearing Bois D’Argent cologne. The cologne is part of the trio (Cologne Blanche and Eau Noire being the other two) created by Hedi Slimane, a fashion designer for Christian Dior. It features the notes of iris, incense, myrrh, honey, and leather – exactly the kind of notes I adore in perfume. On my skin, this takes on a dusty, hazy quality. Incense and myrrh are not jarring, honey is not syrupy, and leather is not abrasive. It’s a subdued composition, with notes blended together harmoniously. When I wear it, I feel calm, peaceful, and poised.

Bois D’Argent can be purchased from Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Eluxury.

    I was planning to revisit it soon, because I am trying to decide whether I need anything more than my decant or not. I agree about its hazy quality, which is probably what gives it a comforting effect.

    I have a decant, too, and I’m constantly fighting the urge to get a bottle. ;)

    Gennardo, I’m afraid I don’t know where it can be purchased in Europe but you could try eBay or contact a Dior store.

    [...] Eau Noire is part of the cologne trio (Bois d’Argent and Cologne Blanche being the other two), created under the direction of Dior’s men’s clothing designer Hedi Slimane by Francis Kurkdjian. These colognes are brilliantly made, with unique compositions that are both classic and modern, and can be worn both by men and women (and then some!) Eau Noire seems to be the most fitting for winter with its warm, bitter-sweet effect. It features such typical for men’s colognes notes as thyme, sage, lavender, and cedar. In Eau Noire, however, the result is far from crisp and well-groomed. Thanks to immortelle and vanilla pairing, it has a slightly sweet, curry-like accord in which the lavender and herbs are simmering. It’s both cozy and elegant, and can be easily dressed up or down. I simply adore it. [...]

    I buy mine in London. I usually get it from Browns on South Molton Street, but I’ve also bought it at Dior Homme Harrods and Birmingham Selfridges.
