    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.

    It immediately brings back memories of when I used to work in a dusty woodshop restoring antiques. Gucci Pour Homme has a similar dry down as well. They don't really remind me of cutting wood exactly, but more of the smell of old sawdust and woodchips.

    But the fragrance that reminds me most of actually "cutting wood" is by far Dior Fahrenheit. Not cutting wood with an axe, but with a gas-powered chain saw. My Dad used to always go out cutting wood with a chain saw and when he came back inside the freshly cut wood, gasoline, and sweaty musk would all mix together and smell remarkably similar to Fahrenheit. The fist time I smelled Fahrenheit I was convinced my dad used to wear it because it brought back so many memories of him from my childhood. But my mother assures me that he never wore cologne. Now I'm certain it was just the smell of cut wood and gasoline on his skin.

    Seems Gucci PH 1 smells much like sawdust. I can't comment but I have started to notice a lot of cedar in Gucci's Envy, so if you are happy with cedar sawdust this could be the one.
