Conifers like pine, fir, and cypress form a common and very diverse perfume category. Depending on concentration and blending, fir or pine notes can lend a fragrance composition anything from a sappy green freshness over resinous and balsamic depth to harsher smoky or almost tarry characteristics. But which woody fir-, pine-, or cypress-focused fragrance is your own personal favorite?
My own vote goes to Yatagan for the way it uses the pine note to very strikingly set off â€śdirtyâ€ť animalic and herbal elements. But which one do you like best? Maybe I didnâ€™t even list it?
