THE BEST TIMBER SCENTS FOR MEN

It should smell like a hard days work at the lumber yard.

There is something undeniably masculine about woody notes. They speak of the forest, the mill, power tools and sawdust. It’s no mistake that ‘got wood’ means what it does. They also run the gamut from fresh greens to smoky campfires – which incidentally is also the name of our favourite country and western singer. One of the best known is sandalwood, which has a light spice element and a clean finish. Cedar is another heavyweight but it is available in a dazzling variety from subtle vanilla to Buddhist temple incense.

Oud, which is actually a protection mechanism the agar tree produces against mould, is your classic spice meets woodgrain. The whole larder exists in oud: cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and more. Cypress also deserves its due as it brings with it a crisp Alpine touch. Think a run through the trees on pure white powder first thing in the morning. And if you reckon we’re romanticising this, you’d be right.

Oak is the final lumber puncher to acknowledge. The beauty of this note is that it sits between the lightness of sandalwood and the heft of cedar.
