Champagne de Bois Sonoma Scent StudioRelease Notes: Released June 2008. Reformulated July 2012 to switch to a new labdanum, but it remained very close to the original scent and most people couldn’t tell the difference (the labdanum was the only change). In February 2015 one of the woody ingredients that I use in it was slightly changed by the manufacturer; I think it has a subtle difference in the first 20 minutes but not in the drydown.

Perfumer's Comments: When making Champagne de Bois, I started with a sweet, spicy, woodsy accord that I wanted to flesh out into a full perfume. I found that blending it with several aldehydes really made it sparkle, and thus the idea for Champagne de Bois was born. Please note that this perfume is quite rich with a lot of oomph and is not for those who like a soft skin scent.
