Meet Bois De Yuzu, Karl Lagerfeld’s New Fragrance for Men

Following the debut of Parfums Matières last year, Karl Lagerfeld continues the brand’s olfactory story by launching two more fragrances this year.

Same like last year, the new collection of fragrances are created around specific ingredients. Last year, it was vetiver for men and peach for the ladies. This year, the house chose Yuzu wood for men, the Bois De Yuzu and blackberry blossom for the ladies, the Fleur de Mûrier.

French perfumer Emilie Coppermann created both fragrances. Talking about Bois de Yuzu, Coppermann imagined the fragrance as a burst of soaring freshness as well as an ode to masculinity. “This fragrance offers a new vision of virility, playing on contrasting materials and textures.” Said Copperman.

True to her words, Bois de Yuzu has a bright, fresh and citrusy opening, with an icy effect of frozen ginger that contrasts with the bitterness of mandarin. Afterwards, the star ingredient, yuzu, comes in, mingling with a hint of clary sage that gives it all a very masculine feel. Eventually, the fragrance is rounded off with woody notes of papyrus and moss, which makes the closing of Bois de Yuzu warm and deep.

So if you’re into a fruity fragrance with a bright opening and a woody dry-down, the Bois De Yuzu is definitely for you. It is elegant, masculine and perfect for the day. As an added bonus, its fruity notes will definitely freshen you up at all times.
