The enigmatic world of fragrances is highly complex. To traverse through all the different types of perfumes to stumble upon your individual liking can be an interesting quest. There are a ton of fragrances to choose from and the variety can be exciting and confusing too.
Largely, there are four fragrance families namely Warm, Woody, Oriental and Fresh. Out of these, woody scents are one of the most popular for their dominant vibe.
What exactly are woody notes?
As the name suggests, Woody Notes originate from the woods – trees, moss, roots, bark, pine cones and grass, giving it the crispy, earthy vibe. Woody notes blend in to add their own warmth typically like Sandalwood or Cedarwood.
Woody Notes are highly versatile. You can easily add a floral or oriental note to it, or even a fruity or spicy zest. Therefore, woody fragrances are often considered a unisex scent, and woody perfumes are popular for their versatile and sophisticated perfume trail.
Woody notes are considered to be rich, classy and grounding, giving you an earthy, outdoorsy vibe, almost like sitting at a campfire by the crackling fire and the warmth cosies you up.
