Bois D’encens showcases Somalian Incense, an olfactory reflection of the hours Giorgio Armani spent with his grandmother in Italian churches. It is a rebirth of the mystery of the oldest known perfume in the world, Kyphi, created 4,000 years ago by the Egyptians. Bois d’Encens springs from Giorgio Armani’s own memories. “I wanted to re-create the scent of incense from my childhood when I would go to church with my grandmother,” he recalls. “It had depth and warmth that also reminded me of the black stone from Pantelleria.” Mystical and beguiling, Bois d’Encens balances essence and pure incense, sumptuously enhanced with vetiver and cedar. It is the fragrance Mr Armani himself wears every day.
