Bois 1920 is a brand of artisan perfumes from Florence 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.
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.
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.
