Rocky mountain wood is an amazing fragrance. The fresh smell of woods and moss is truly unique. Four strategic sprays can last me several hours and land me several compliments. Sillage is great too. This is not a date fragrance, and it's mainly suitable for casual occasions. Nevertheless, I highly recommend it for anyone's collection. I find myself reaching for this bottle far more often than I would have guessed.
The lilly note is the dominante floral, along with the pepper and incence make for a fresh rocky mountain accord. All on a natural woody base.
I am not a huge fan of DSQUARED fragrances but this one is really lovely.
That is one of the scents that i reach for use for a different situation or special occasions.a original creation.
Is truly classic and woody and different on my collection!
perfect for wear at autumn eveneings. totally chic and eminently masculine.
. langevity/sillage is good.
This is a really nice smell, but it's not very unique. The typical fresh vetiver, it follows Grey Vetiver. As it dries it has a slight dark, inky aroma, reminiscent of the original He Wood. TONS of violet in the opening. Don't know what violet smells like? Start here. It blends beautifully with vetiver in the opening, creating this gothic like accord. Dark, earthy, but also versatile and very wearable. Into a base of cedarwood and a little incense. A note that smells like a lilly flower lingering around; after doing some research, turns out it's jasmine. A note I usually despise, seems to work out ok in this one. There's some sort of herbal not in the background, I wanna say basil or oregano. This herbal note when combining with the violet and vetiver makes for some type of awkward BBQ meat accord, that I can't seem to get around.
It's just okay to me, it's nothing to go out of your way to try and get; especially now since being discontinued, and harder to find, prices are climbing up really high. Right now they're at the point where the discounted bottles are harder to find, you'll be paying around retail, or right at retail. I do see this one going up in price over the next year though.
In my opinion, Dsquared cashed in on the He Wood brand on this one. Although He Wood wasn't a huge success in retail stores, it still sold pretty well from my understanding, and has its supporters. Rocky Mountain Wood is just another overrated flanker.

The scent is awesome, what a great smell, indeed. Best of the dsquared2 He Wood line. I sense this scent except woody of course but also as a cooling, comforting, oudoor-sy - Which it is no doubt meant to be. Can be worn in hot humid climate as well - It was yet to see the day for me to find a current, non-vintage fragrance that i can from all of my heart give honestly FULL 5 STARS. Glad i found this one. Like it more than CdG Wonderwood for example.
That was for the scent/smell - unfortunately on my skin the longevity is really bad, only 1,5-2 hours so i will run out of this juice soon, but have already bought a couple of backup bottles - fortunately this one is a quite inexpensive frag.
