Love For Woods: History of Woody Perfumes
Choosing a perfume is not random, therefore it should be done carefully and with little examination. Hence, if chosen perfectly it can amp up your look.
Perfumes are typically classified in various scent families, including Floral, Chypre, Citrus, Fruity, Oriental and Fougere.
Today we are going to look at the dominant accord of the family i.e. Woody family.
Woody perfumes are unique because of their luxurious woody character, with woody notes from trees, resin, moss, bark, pine cones and the deep earthy, woody character of grasses and leaves can be mixed with aromatic or citrus headnotes. However, creaminess and sensuality come with sandalwood which is the dominant part of woody perfumes.
Origin Of Woody Perfumes
In the 1940s, with the emergence, they were originally committed to the scents of man and were endowed with a deep and powerful character that gave men uniqueness. The first women's fragrance emerged in 1992 by the French designer Serge Lutens "Feminite du Bois".
Woody perfumes are often unisex because both men and women are attracted, so it is not surprising that woody notes are also coming outside traditional perfumery. Other than being a perfume it is also used in personal care and home care products (like scented candles). This type of perfume can stay all day long with aromatic and elegant blending with perfection.
