Questions and Answers
Q: How does Bois D'amande smell?
A: Bois D'amande is a mature and sophisticated scent. As a member of the amber fragrance family, the perfume has a powdery, sweet, warm scent. Because the scent has a woody undercurrent, it also carries a smokier and drier aroma. The combination of the fragrances creates a smooth and rugged aroma, like walking a forest trail after a spring rain.
Q: Where do you apply Bois D'amande?
A: To increase the longevity of the fragrance, spray onto your major pulse points, such as behind your ears, at the base of your neck, on the wrists, behind the knees and in the inner elbows.
Q: What is the fragrance concentration?
A: Bois D'amande is an Eau de Parfum with a concentration between 15% and 20%. Because it is a more potent concentration than an Eau de Toilette, wearers can expect a longer wear time. Also, despite the stronger concentration, wearers don't have to worry about the fragrance rubbing off during skin-to-skin contact because design houses work to ensure that doesn't happen.
Q: Is Bois D'amande for him or her?
A: Bois D'amande by Van Cleef & Arpels is a unisex fragrance, so it is suitable for men and women. Typically, woody scents are more masculine, but because Bois D'amande uses sweet notes throughout to complement the wood notes, it comes across as more subtle and approachable.
Q: Does Bois D'amande last long?
A: Bois D'amande has a stronger fragrance concentration, so wearers can expect it to last. As an EDP, the average wear time for the perfume is about five hours. Some wearers might only achieve a wear time of around four hours because of their skin type or body chemistry. Other factors affecting the duration include the application method and the wearer's environment. Combating some of these issues is possible by applying the fragrance to your clothing, not your skin.
Q: What fragrances smell similar?
A: If you appreciate the scent profile of Bois D'amande, you might also enjoy three similar scents: Qasaed Al Sultan by Lattafa Perfumes, Forbidden Grass by Oakcha, or Bois D'Ambre by Karl Lagerfeld.
Q: What season should I wear Bois D'amande?
A: Bois D'amande by Van Cleef & Arpels is an amber woody fragrance with warmer notes. Because of its full base and earthy notes, it is best to wear the perfume in the fall and winter. However, for people that appreciate a warm, full scent year-round, Bois D'amande is an excellent option.
Q: Where can I buy it?
A: Perfume.com is perhaps one of the best online fragrance retailers because we offer the widest selection of authentic perfumes and colognes, competitive pricing and top-notch customer service.
