Something about it feels ritualistic, shamanic almost. The deeply rooty, spicy smell of the woods, herbs, and spices will run through your spirit like a hot knife through butter, cleaning out the dust in your mental corridors. A leathery, tart combination of black tea and incense is the bridge that settles you into the warm, smoky base of styrax resin, leather, and patchouli. The final impression is restful: it is all woodsmoke, red resin, and the chocolatey dampness of hummus-rich earth.
Woody Mood was developed by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. The notes include bergamot, ginger, clary sage, saffron, sequoia, spikenard (jatamansi), black tea, incense, patchouli, leather, styrax and cacao.
Olfactive Studio Woody Mood is available now at Essenza Nobile in Germany, in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
