What Does Bois d'Ascèse Smell Like

Bois d'Ascèse by Naomi Goodsir opens with a bold wisp of tobacco, rich and unapologetic, underscored by a subtle hint of whisky. The initial smoky impression is intriguing, like a secluded cabin's hearth in the midst of winter. The fragrance then evolves to reveal a heart of warm amber and labdanum, bringing a soft golden glow to the composition. A light dusting of cinnamon adds a touch of spice but never overpowers, instead serving to bridge the gap between the smoky top and resinous heart of the scent.

As the perfume settles on the skin, the base notes come forward. Smoked prickly cedar stands out, releasing an intense woody aroma that's comforting and familiar. This robust, earthy quality is softened by the inclusion of Somalian frankincense, which lends an exotic, almost mystical, quality to the perfume. The scent finishes with a whisper of oakmoss, grounding the fragrance and giving it a touch of green freshness.

Overall, Bois d'Ascèse is a deeply smoky and woody perfume, with a spicy, resinous heart and an earthy base. It's like a journey through a dense, ancient forest at dusk, with its hidden mysteries and comforting familiarity.

Review of Bois d'Ascèse

Bois d'Ascèse by Naomi Goodsir is a robust and bold perfume that speaks volumes about its wearer. Its smoky essence is robust, enveloping you in a warm, woody aura that is both strong and comforting. It has a noticeable spice to it, which adds an intriguing element to the mix, combined with a resinous undertone that grounds the scent, and a slight hint of earthiness and leather for added depth and complexity. This scent is truly perfect for men who aren't afraid of making a strong statement. With its greatest charm seen in the colder seasons of fall and winter, Bois d'Ascèse is the ideal companion for those cozy evening gatherings and exciting nights out. Though it carries an air of leisure, don't be surprised if you find yourself reaching for it on ordinary days, or even at business encounters. It's not overly pricey for the experience it offers. Just a few sprays and its powerful composition lingers on the skin, extending its presence throughout the day.
