    Default (diptyque) feu de bois.. wood fire.. fire on wood.. cold or hot.. whichever clicks

    any recommendations or favorite perfumes on this theme?? i've smelled the diptyque candle bearing this name, though the room spray is not available at our shops here so havent tried that..

    simply saying, if i were standing just outside a provincial cabin, on a still slightly foggy morning, with smell of chopped woods burning somewhere not far, and the sun not yet fully out.. what perfume could i be looking at??


    cheers!!

    Yes, god yes! I've been saying this for months. I really wish it came in a personal fragrance.

    I've heard good things about Burning Leaves.

    Perhaps CDG Wonderwood? or one of the incense series?

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    oh yes pleese indeed
    but considering the general feel of the newer fragrances they have released, i think one can only dream.. for now..

    will revisit wonderwood, thanks.. and i do have kyoto.. was wishing it would have a bit more sillage though, just a bit more but i love it

    my mistake.. i havent smelled wonderwood yet since it's not yet available in the shops here i think, so will have to wait for that.. (i was initially thinking the '-wood' scents of Dsquared..)

    ah.. sorry about my vague comment.. was pertaining to the diptyque feu de bois which only comes in candle and i think room spray (which i assume was what Master-Classter was referring to as well :P )

    Burning Leaves sounds promising.. will explore this, thanks!!
