Bois 1920 is a brand that expresses the Galardi family’s passion for the art of perfume – making which is handed down from one generation to another. Passion that livens up, inspires and carefully enriches our line, of over 30 fragrances today. Moreover, the raw materials research combines tradition and innovation, for a harmony of unique and charming olfactory compositions.\n
The story all began in the 1920 when the grandfather Guido Galardi starts experimenting, the first formulas in his tiny workshop in Florence. He began collecting the “Spigo” (Lavander flowers) which ripens on the Florentine hills. His pursuit mixes different expressive features: essential oils, scented solutions, perfumed bags. All these characteristics inspire and shape the brand BOttega Italiana Spigo 1920 (BOIS 1920) which acquires a worldwide importance over the years along with recognised rewards. In 2012 Bois 1920 was selected among the best five olfactory expressions at the FiFi Awards (the Oscars of perfumery) in New York.\n
Today Bois 1920 represents the added value in the niche perfumery sector playing an active role towards new olfactory versions that need to be explored and worn. A role that engage, inspire and harmonize our senses.\nAbout BOIS \n \nThe origins \nWe are in the 20’ and Jazz music gets popular in the States. It is the beginning of sound cinemas and TV, and, on the Florentine hills, this is the time when the forefather of Galardi family, Guido, gives shape to his inspiration in the art of perfumery. The smell of just-picked lavender flowers (Spigo) fostered his dream to create, in Florence, something unmistakable, a workshop for inimitable fragrances: TheWorkshop for Italian Lavender (BOttega Italiana Spigo). This dream comes fully true with Enzo, Guido’s nephew. Thanks to his experience and the strong passion inherited, he does not only create exclusive fragrances for renown luxury brands, but also unique personal lines. As a Maître profumeur, along the years Enzo turns the small family workshop into a dynamic company: BOIS 1920 is born. And in 2012 the first international acknowledgments crown BOIS 1920 among the best five world fragrances at the Oscars of perfumery, the FiFi Awards in NewYork.
