Splurge: Fragrance du Bois’ bespoke perfume service will cost you S$14,000

Anyone who thinks brand-name fragrances define luxury perfumes ought to revise their assumptions. While you’ve got labels that price their scents at a couple hundred dollars, they remain widely available, if not the most accessible.

A house like Fragrance du Bois is on a different level. The French perfumers pride themselves in making perfumes focused around pure oud — a potent, musky oil extracted from the agar tree. Each oud scent from Fragrance du Bois is inspired by an intense colour, from rouge to vert.

Fragrance du Bois’ new boutique at Scotts Square is the dictionary’s definition of luxury.

Oud may not be for everybody, so the house proffers floral-based perfumes, as well as two highly exclusive bespoke services. The first involves the client picking out two to three scents from the Fragrance du Bois line, and having a consultation with an in-house expert to create a blend according to their wishes. It isn’t completely custom, but you do get to tailor the intensity and strength of the scent to your liking.

Aside from its house brand, Fragrance du Bois also exclusively stocks scents from labels like Xerjoff, Jovoy and Jeroboam.

The second is a fully bespoke perfume service. An appointment is required two to three months in advance, and you will be taken care of by Fragrance du Bois’ master perfumer, who will be flown to Singapore for a consultation. It’s a back-and-forth process that’ll take up to a few months, as samples will be sent to you, and tweaked according to your feedback until the perfect scent is made. The brand will even go as far as sourcing down the particular strain of oud for the perfume from any one of its Asian plantations, if you wish. Prices for this begin at S$14,000. You’ll receive two 100ml bottles, and a refill option after the service ends.

Anyone keen on the service can visit Fragrance du Bois’ lush new boutique at Scotts Square to make enquiries.

Fragrance du Bois is located at #01-11, Scotts Square, 6 Scotts Road, Singapore 228209, +65 6536 5771.
