The Best Woody Scents For Spring

The Best Woody Scents For Spring

Spring has finally arrived, and while I’d normally be tempted to opt for fruity and floral fragrances at this time of year, I’ve recently discovered a plethora of softer woody blends that are just perfect for the new season. Whether it’s sandalwood, vetiver, oakmoss or patchouli, the earthy edge these notes add not only provides depth and staying power, but a bit of versatility too. With that in mind, here are my favourite woody scents for spring.

The Floral And Woody Blend

Narciso Eau de Parfum from Narciso Rodriguez offers the best of both worlds.

With accords of white gardenia flowers and Bulgarian rose, it still captures the essence of spring, but with the added depth of a musk, amber and black cedar base. It’s a gorgeous feminine scent with intriguing and mysterious deep notes.

An Aromatic And Woody Scent

If the arrival of spring already has you dreaming of sunny beaches and golden sand, then you’re going to love the Jo Malone London Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne.

Combining the natural earthiness of sage with sea salt and musky ambrette, its unique woody undertones and playful heart evokes sandy shores and crashing waves. It’s almost like breathing in the sea breeze!

A Fruity And Woody Combo

Fruity scents can sometimes come across as a little childish, but Davidoff’s Cool Water Woman Eau de Toilette gives the fruity composition a grown-up edge to become one of the best woody scents for spring.

The top notes of lemon, blackcurrant, pineapple and honey are laid on a contrasting base of sandalwood, vanilla and vetiver to create a refreshing fragrance that is recognisable without being overpowering.

The Spicy And Woody Fragrance

If you’re a fan of spicy, slightly masculine scents that have a botanical undertone, you’ll adore Molton Brown’s Re-Charge Black Pepper Eau de Toilette.

This fragrance is the perfect combination. It boasts top notes of black pepper, lemon and ginger with a woody base of vetiver, oakmoss and ambergris. Add to that the heart of coriander, basil and violet and you’ve got yourself a bold yet luminous perfume that is undeniably one of the best woody scents for spring.

A Woody Perfume With Aromatic Undertones

You know that satisfaction you get from your first cup of tea in the morning? Well, the Elizabeth Arden White Tea Eau de Toilette allows you to experience that same pleasure every time you spray it.

White tea and ambrette seed are blended over a musky base to create a refined and uncomplicated scent that is both refreshing and uplifting. Trust me, you won’t be able to get enough of it!
