In a recent interview, Dora Arnaud - creator of L'Artisan Parfumeur's Caligna (soon to be reviewed here) - revealed that the scent contains a relatively new raw material: a tincture of oak chips. "It's a very nice quality of oak that we infuse," she said. "It's very interesting, it gives all these smells of prunes and vanilla. It has a balmy side. Also, it's not smoky. It's a new natural wood for us." To read the rest of the interview, please click on this link to Basenotes.
