Trend Alert: Wood Fragrances
Wood is having a moment in perfumery. Smoky, mysterious oud has dominated the beauty hall counters over the past year, converting even the most modern fragrance wearers to its rich, sensual notes; this trend for escapist scents shows no sign of abating any time soon.
Case in point, the newest addition to YSL’s Oriental Collection, the aptly named Splendid Wood. A deep yet fresh blend of jasmine, tobacco, glazed fruit, oud accord and gaiac wood, this swirling incense-like scent will transport you to the splendour of the East with a mere spritz – an exotic choice for any city-dweller.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Splendid Wood is available exclusively at Harrods.
