I think you may be onto something here. Woods do seem to be the new IT fragrances and there is definitely a tide of new woods that are rolling over the counters right now.
To answer your question though, my favorite woods fragrance released recently are: BANG by Marc Jacobs and Rocky Mountain Wood by DSquared.
It is curious, if woods are the new thing, why where the the two largest discussion threads on Basenotes recently of fragrances that are aquatic or semi fresh aquatic like scents? - Creed Aventus and Chanel Bleu. These two aquatics threads had 10 times the volume of responses for time spent on the discussion pages. That is lots of interest versus any other fragrance subject. But it is hard to determine if the cause of the huge volume of interest was style of fragrance, or that these are two very large fragrance houses that have many fans and high expectations!?
Personally I am much more excited by a new good woods fragrance (such as Bang) any day than these two (Bleu.Aventus) late entries into the aquatic fresh genre that are trying to put perfection and fine points on an already worn and played out style of fragrance. No doubt Bleu and Aventus will sell tons but I would rather find something new.
