    Default What smells like a luxury wooden watch box?

    Pretty sure the best thing in the breutling store was the smell. It was a woody masculine scent. Other people seem to be intoxicated by it as well.

    Am I looking at Tam Dao? EDT or EDP?

    What comes to mind is Opulent Wood for me.

    ive never smelled a breitling box, but i happen to have a franck muller box in my office so i just grabbed it and took a whiff. Its a leather bound box, not sure what the inside is made of, but it just smells like luxury leather to me. very nice (if you like the smell of genuine leather)

    Among others, in no particular order:

    niche and/or vintage - Feminite du Bois in the Shiseido and/or Lutens version, maybe also some of the scents in the 7 Parfums Capitaux range by Jovoy

    designer - some of the Cartier scents including Must, Pasha and/or Deckaration, plus the more woody flankers of the latter like Bois Bleu
    Currently wearing: Vetiver by Guerlain

    Me too but a few years ago I was intoxicated by the scent of the breitling store

    They might not smell the same way now but it was a woody masculine scent they had in the diffuser

    When I think of woods furniture and boxes Creed Bois du Portugal comes to mind.
