Bois Mystérieux by Guerlain Review
Description
The bottle of Guerlain’s unisex fragrance Bois Mystérieux may catch your attention, but we are not sure that the liquid within will. The opening gave more oomph than we’d like, and it is the headache-inducing kind. If you get past that, the strength eventually dies down to reveal jasmine that, for us, feels intended to cancel out the musky with some sweetness. The scent does not make its exit in a manner that we enjoyed, too—it’s as if it overstayed its welcome on the skin.

If you find the Bois Mystérieux by Guerlain to be similar to one of the brand’s previous scents, then it is because it shares essentially the same notes as Songe d’un Bois d’Été. Now part of the house collection Absolus d’Orient, Bois Mystérieux was composed by Guerlain’s in-house perfumer, Thierry Wasser. The top notes are listed to be laurels and neroli; middle notes are jasmine, atlas cedar and patchouli; and base notes are myrrh and leather. The fragrance is marketed as a unisex scent, although we think it leans more on being masculine.
