    Default What Scent Reminds You of Cutting Wood?

    What scent reminds you of cutting wood?

    There has to be something out that evokes this. Something that is not cloying/overpowering or sweet.

    Hmmm well chopping wood at my home, you get more of the bush smells than you do of the wood you're chopping, so there's much more grass, greenery and smoke (from the fire inside the house) going on than actual woody smells. I've not found a fragrance that smells like this.

    Concerning the scent of working with wood, though, I can tell you that Crabtree and Evelyn Sandalwood, and the opening of Creed's Royal Oud both smell fairly true.

    Try:

    Chene by Serge Lutens
    - One is initially treated to an enveloping aura of freshly planed lumber, at once astringent, somewhat akin to the sour spitup of a baby, and yet, faintly sweet. A fruity booziness of rum as well as a syrupy immortelle, with its herbaceous, sweet hay aspect, swirl about redolent of an oozed sap. Transitioning to the awaiting middle, a rich, smoky cedar rises to usurp the opening wood, while oakmoss imparts its foresty, green bitterness, which is pleasantly offset by delightsome honey. Splashes of lemony thyme flitter about. Segueing to the enriching base, a robust birch bestows its root beer commingling with wintergreen aroma. Beeswax supplies its cured tobacco and sweet hay aspects. And, tonka bean offers its rich spiciness and smokiness. The intermingling of these scents creates a pleasing drydown. This high-quality composition has average projection and very good longevity. This somewhat rustic fragrance definitely leans to the masculine side.

    Parfumerie Generale; Bois blond. Smells like the heap of freshly cut logs of birch, aspen and pine we have here every early-fall.

    Tam Dao is a good shout, perhaps L'air du desert Marocain too with its strong base of cedar.
