Woody fragrances have become increasingly more popular in recent years, most notably in masculine perfumery.
Woody fragrances could be considered a new alternative to the use of the Fougère structure in masculine perfumery. They are appreciated because of their qualitative and textural effect.
From the dryness of cedarwood and the deep humidity of patchouli, to the creamy and enveloping effect of sandalwood, woody notes offer a wide range of possibilities.
Woody Juniper (inspired by D&G’s K) and Woody Ginger (inspired by Tom Ford’s Tom Ford for Men) are good examples of woody masculine fragrances. Woody notes can also be key ingredients in some feminine fragrances, like in Floriental Cedarwood (inspired by Mugler’s Alien).
