Samples of our most popular woody scents: Santal 66, Old Book, Mahogany Wood, Sensual Woods and Earth.
Wood scents invoke a powerful, mysterious, and luxurious theme. They often lean towards the masculine and are popular in dark color themes— think crimson, midnight blue, emerald, aubergine and charcoal. Woody notes are rich and warm, add a hint of sensuality to the colder months, and can be extremely grounding, with an aroma that brings us closer to a walk in deep woodlands. Comforting woody scents can help put shoppers in the mood to indulge themselves.
Woody fragrances have been used for thousands of years, as perfume, in ritual and for healing. They are derived from nature—trees, roots, resins and pine cones, plus plants with an earthy aroma. Whether used alone, or lifted with citrus or light floral scents, wood ingredients add richness, warmth, elegance and a depth to a fragrance and are key to delivering a strong base in perfume making.
Autumn and Winter are the perfect time to opt for rich, warming woody fragrance. Leaves turn russet and gold, fall and decay, and the air is filled with an earthy aroma and smokey hints from distant wood burning fires. As the temperature drops we gravitate indoors, and light spicy scented candles and warming fires as we crave comfort and small pleasures.
