Woody Ladies' Fragrances

Fragrances of the woody family are pillars of warmth, elegance and dryness. Yet, echoing the grain of timber, theirs is an immensely varied spectrum of color, character and tone.

Consider ingredients such as sandalwood (creamy and rosy), patchouli (earthy, pungent), cedar (spicy, resinous), and vetiver (which alone possesses sweet, dry, smoky, bitter, fruity, or peppery properties). These are all nominally woody, yet diverse in their detail; long-lived, and enigmatic.
