A brand dedicated to capturing the soul-nurturing qualities of trees in exquisite eau de parfums, Scents of Wood is a never-ending source of olfactive wonder. Founder Fabrice Croisé reimagines forests through unique scents and candles that encapsulate the mystical and healing practices of nature.
“I always say that the alpha and the omega of the brand are the trees and the skin,” he explains.
For us, the journey begins with the forest as a place of bewilderment, with sunlight engaging in shadow play for its inhabitants. It then moves to each tree and the perplexing duality of its branches reaching for the sky, as well as the roots that ground it. We imagine the dry wooden barrels drenched in perfume essence, where the main notes of the scent mingle with the wood used to create said barrels. Like the art of aging alcohol, the final result is not necessarily a scent per se, but an artistic triumph.
“Creating a fragrance for Scents of Wood is a singular experience in the life of a perfumer. The only guideline we receive is one word, the name of a tree. We are free to take this simple starting point in any direction we want, any emotion, any memory. When the creation is complete, we get to choose a wooden barrel in which we age organic alcohol to produce the final scent. The creative output is astonishing by any measure.”Pascal Gaurin, perfumer

Scents of Wood is The Soul Of The Trees
Rather than thinking about the fragrances as the souls of the trees extracted in fragrance form, we ask you to experience Scents of Wood as a vault that safe-keeps all the wisdom, healing power, and beauty of the trees, then transfers them onto your skin.
If you can’t lose yourself in nature, take your pick from one of the Scents of Wood fragrances in our catalog and lose yourself in their beauty.
Reminiscent of a walk in a cypress forest along the French coastline, that ultimate bliss is achieved through an evergreen essence of cypress, fir balsam, and oakmoss. Cedarwood and amber play the role of the sun, warming up on your skin, while vanilla is comfortable being the bearer of happiness.
Meant to “capture the harmonious clash between the timeless vitality of the orange tree and the modern amber,” this floral scent starts with a duo of white flowers in full bloom — orange blossom and jasmine — mixing with amber, cedarwood, and bergamot oil. It’s a sun-drenched scent that worships the arresting aroma of orange blossom, unique and unlike anything you’ve tried before.
Sandalwood in Oak is a transcending scent of sage accords ritually melded with guaiac wood and musk, all of which is accented with the dry, mystical aroma of sandalwood. There’s also burnt sugar and vanilla, coming together for a dose of subtly sweet yet very sexy perfume.
A unique and powerful blend of ginger and cedarwood attracts attention for all the right reasons. When you surrender your senses to the utter enjoyment completely, it rewards you by slowly introducing the cinnamon bark and orris concrete, revealing a whole new meaning to descriptors like hedonistic, pleasurable, and unrestrained.
A homage to vetiver, with warm amber and hot spices talking up the attractiveness of this magnificent ingredient. Are you ready for this? Vetiver and lime oil are a highlight here, adding softness to the scent’s mossy finish. Bold, but never overbearing, Vetiver in Oak is a treat for the senses.
