How to Pronounce Bois de Jasmin
Bois is pronounced as "bwah" in French--imagine that you are planting a tender kiss on someone's cheek.

Moreover, her voice is beautiful, so it is a double pleasure to listen to her impressive collection of 782 podcasts featuring French fragrance names. And here is how one pronounces Bois de Jasmin!
