What Are Woody Fragrances? – MAJOURI





What Are Woody Fragrances?

The diverse world of fragrances is highly enriching. To discover the different types of perfume, you should have a good understanding of the fragrance families wheel, which we discussed in a different blog post.


There are four main scent family types; floral notes, oriental notes, woody notes and fresh notes. In this blog post, we’ll focus on the woody notes in more detail, and give some examples from our collection.


Woody fragrances are perfumes that are created and inspired by woods. Woody perfumes are usually warm and opulent. Normally, sandalwood and patchouli, with drier notes like cedar are used in woody perfumes.

Woody fragrances can be both cool and warm, hard and soft, rough and smooth, rich and sparse, spicy and mineral, and much more. And this is why fresh notes like citrus and floral are mixed with the woody perfumes to tone down the warmth of this scent family.

Below are woody perfumes from our fragrances collection.
