Woody Oriental

Woody Oriental compositions represent the point halfway between amber and woods. These fragrances tend to be sweet and woody and prominently feature notes like sandalwood and patchouli. The core structure of this family consists of an oriental accord of resins, vanilla and tonka bean paired with opulent woody notes of sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver. This expansive family contains everything from gourmand fragrances with edible notes to near-chypres with mossy accords. More modern interpretations of woody orientals often append bright citrus fruity accords or fresh clean notes to the core structure. The Woody Oriental family is one of the most popular fragrance families, with a large percentage of new releases belonging to this family.
