The Best Earthy and Woody Scents of Men and Women
Posted on December 26 2020
When you think of manly scents, notes of citrus and spice often come to mind. However, there’s a whole other fragrance family that’s best suited for men, especially during the cold months of fall and winter, and that is the earth and woody fragrance family.
Woody, earthy perfumes are the kind of perfumes that guys often consider as their go-to for intimate occasions or romantic events. These invoke feelings of warmth and sensuality and have the ability to take you to exotic places without you ever leaving your home. This fragrance family isn’t exclusive to men, though. There are lots of woody women’s perfumes out there as well that can give you the same experience.
A lot of people tend to steer clear of this fragrance family, though, and that’s because woody scents have a bad rap for being heavy on the nose. However, there are definitely lots of woody scents out there that are light and pleasing, both for men and women. Here are the top three best earthy and woody perfumes for men and two of the best ones for women.
If there’s a woody fragrance that’s universally loved by all, it’s Gucci Guilty Pour Homme. If you’re the type who gets turned off by men’s perfumes that are too strong, overly macho, and extremely overwhelming, this is the one for your (or your man). It’s easy on the nose, fresh but masculine, and definitely sexy and warm. It’s far from the generic woody scent that dominates the perfumes aisles, but it’s not too unique that it only appeals to a certain niche. This well-rounded perfume is a must-try for anyone looking for an earthy, woody perfume for men.
Most people think that wearing wood perfume for men means wearing something strong and heavy but this fragrance is proof that it doesn’t always have to be the case. Opening up with light, fresh citrus notes, and later drying down with a nice hint of earth and wood, DSquared Wood EDT wears like second skin.
If you loved Dolce & Gabba Pour Homme, you’ll love Intenso Pour Homme by Dolce and Gabbana as well. This scent is uniquely woody but clean. It’s the kind of scent that reminds you of the feeling of coming right out of the shower, but sexier. If you’re looking for a woody perfume for men that’s beautifully complex, yet still easy on the nose, give this one a shot.
You can never go wrong with a classic and, when it comes to classic woody perfumes for women, there’s nothing better than Dior’s Dune Pour Femme. If you love vanilla but you’re looking for something a bit more mature, this wood and amber is sure to be a welcome addition to your collection.
Burberry Body is a dynamic woody scent that’s perfect for either daytime or nighttime use. It’s one of those woody and earthy fragrances for women that anyone can easily appreciate. Light, woody, with a hint of amber for just the right amount of sweetness -- this is definitely a perfume that’s worth trying.
