Old and new meet in this hyper floral concoction. Magnolia, night–blooming tuberose, and wild geranium fill the headspace while golden amber, patchouli, and exotic musk make for an intoxicating accord of base notes. One of the original Boy Smells scents, it only gets better with time.
In the French language, Les is the plural article used for both masculine and feminine nouns, a very genderful word indeed. It is also the acronym for one of New York City’s most vibrant cross-cultural neighborhoods—picking up on notes of rice powder, peach blossom, cardamom, cedar and pear, to name just a few of its many notes, much like the bodega and wholesale food suppliers synonymous with the area. All in all, this scent is an unexpected, abundant, cross-cultural, olfactive exploration that reaches far beyond the binary.
Cameo is an epic floral scent, one that combines strength and softness, the elusive virtues of grace, difficult to find in a not-always-kind world. The spice of crystallized ginger, warmth of vanilla, and the grounding sacred feminine of rose act as conduits for compassion. Inspired by Wedgwood porcelain and the Andy Warhol polaroid of Dolly Parton, Cameo is absurdly pretty, to a subversive degree. Named after the 18th century stoneware pendants, depicting portraits in profile, Cameo evokes the the pastel tones of blue and pink typical of the Neoclassical style.
Citrus groves, honeysuckle blossom and tomato gardens give vibrance to this very vine-ripened scent. Dominant notes of orange tree, tomato leaf, and oakmoss rounded by drops of floral nectar and textures of cedar. Fresh, wild, and bright this scent is packed with invigorating smells of nature.
Green, bright, and intoxicating, Kush is Boy Smells' most iconic cult-classic scent. Wisps of delicate florals mingle with pot flowers and brushed suede, while notes of sage and eucalyptus combine to create a much larger herbal bouquet. Amber and musk ground this scent in its signature dankness.
