Woody fragrances are rich, warm, seductive, opulent, and sophisticated. Typically a woody fragrance is blended using notes of resin, moss, bark, pine cones, and woods (like sandalwood and cedarwood) which all have a very earthy scent to them.
You will notice that the top notes of a woody fragrance are aromatic or zesty, which can cut through, and compliment, the dark and smokey notes that sit at the base. Vetiver and patchouli are also often present within the blend.
Woody fragrances can be brightened using more fruity and floral notes.
