Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens is a Oriental Vanilla fragrance for women and men. Un Bois Vanille was launched in 2003.
In 1519, in the city of Texcoco, capital of the Aztec empire, Hernan Cortes was introduced to a frothy drink with which he fell in love. This beverage was a blend of vanilla, cocoa, and spice. Two years passed. Among the fabulous treasures brought back to Spain was a collection of vanilla pods. The familiar black vanilla, natural, rich, and syrupy transformed into a powdery, comfortable, and all-enveloping scent.
