The Timeless Charm Of Woody Scents: A Guide For Fragrance Enthusiasts
Picking out a signature scent can be a daunting task. How on earth do you go about identifying a blend of smells that perfectly captures the multifaceted nature of your identity, or your very sense of self?
The thing about fragrances is that they’re complicated, but they don’t have to be. A general understanding of fragrance-speak is helpful, especially when you’re going in blind. The most important thing to know is the scent pyramid: top, heart, and base notes. Top notes are what you smell immediately and dissipate fastest; the heart is, well, the heart of the scent and what you smell after the cologne has “dried down” after a little bit; and the base notes are the core smell that stays on your skin the longest. If I lost you, don’t worry. You can still find your perfect cologne without any of that Woody fragrances often have citrus or aromatic headnotes with crisp woody notes in the heart and resin or wood in the base notes. These scents will usually contain pine, patchouli, or cedar wood.
Like a great bottle of whiskey, every man should have a woody cologne in his repertoire, but choosing the right one is key
For every wood element (cedar, sandalwood, guaiac, for example), there should be another accord that enhances its aroma. Whether it’s spicy, citrus, musky, or leathery, every woody cologne has some other element that evokes a certain vibe.
A woody cologne is an infallible option, in the world of fragrances. Not too strong, not too subtle; the right scent for the man who wants something a little bit warm, a little bit earthy.
As the weather turns, so should your fragrance. The warm Nairobi weather has now turned into cold and moody weather, so we advice that you switch out your summer scent for your winter one. The best woody colognes for men offer a touch of warmth when the days get shorter and the nights get colder, it’s time to put away those fresh citrus fragrances and get to terms with the best woody scents for men.
Offering a beautifully layered experience for the senses rife with a natural sensuality, the woody element conjures timeless masculinity, it’s why we often consider woody perfumes as some of the best fragrances for men.
