Sale price$ 230.00

Discover Il Était Un Bois - Eau de Parfum, a fragrance that takes pride of place at the heart of La Collection and is inspired by a walk through the forest.

As you dive deeper, its notes of vetiver, buckwheat, and cedarwood explore all the different facets of the woods in an unexpected harmony. This unique perfume offers a subtle, yet varied, incarnation of wood, utilizing the little-known woody facets of buckwheat. With a major presence in perfumery, the smell of cedar is reminiscent of wood shavings and provides a consistent structure throughout the fragrance journey.

Jean-François Laporte opened his first boutique on the rue de Grenelle, in Paris, in 1979.

For the first time in several decades, a fragrance brand was born that was not the periphery business of a fashion label or designer, but a new niche brand in its own right.

With this in mind, Jean-François Laporte opened his first retail store to offer his customers the most in depth and authentic experience possible, translating fragrance into a brand universe. Until then, only the larger historical brands had been able to do so, holding the monopoly for fragrance retail.
