The day I managed to sniff a fragrance from Humiecki & Graef for the first time, I knew I was going to access a world full of emotions and passion for the things well done. And in spite of the fact that tested so far only 2 perfumes, I know the best is still yet to come. However, none of the above mentioned scents, succeeded in inspiring me a buying impulse such as the perfume which represents the topic of this post.
Advertised on the official website as “a fragrance about contentment”, Bosque was introduced in 2010, soon after another interesting release from Humiecki & Graef that very year, Clemency. Deemed as a shared floral woody musk scent, Bosque was developed by the house partners, perfumers Christophe Laudamiel and Christoph Hornetz. While the description found on the official website is very evocative: “inspired by the inimitable feeling of being at one with the moment”, Bosque manages to be very good at making you feel satisfied with your life.
As you will apply some whiffs on your skin, you will discover a perfectly wearable fragrance for almost all occasions, given that it has a structure that allows exactly this type of behavior. From the pleasant grapefruit opening mixed with a green facet, until a reserved mid development and an excellent dry down, this scent evolves in a complex way, while preserving the sensation of contentment. If I was to be picky, I would say that some of you might find Bosque a little too sweet for your taste, but that’s OK, you should test it and judge for yourself.
The listed notes for the fragrance encompass: grapefruit, buffalo grass, saffron, vetiver, musk, narcise absolute and primerose, while the packaging box and bottle exhibit a combination of soft green and white in the color scheme, the flask being of course Humiecki & Graef’s signature flacon. If you’re feeling down and you need an aromatic incentive to boost your moral, you will definitely love Bosque, since this fragrance will grant you a total olfactory pleasure.
