Personal collection: fragrances

Some of my readers and friends requested a blog post about my favorite perfumes.

Let me start with my signature scent Dsquared2’s Rocky Mountain He Wood. rocky mountain woodThe scent was inspired by Canadian mountains. It is composed of rocky notes, mountain aromas and woody accords. The fragrance includes notes as amber, incense and musk, which reflect rocky notes, along with violet, Canadian lily and white pepper. Vetiver and cedar finish the composition.

A cologne I recently bought is Wonderoud by Comme des Garçons. Oud is really popular in the fragrance world these days. comme-des-garcons-wonderoudIt is one of nature’s most precious gifts, worth its weight in gold. Very aromatic and scented with subtle notes. Its powerful and rich character brings a woody, animal, balsamic and even honey feel and texture to a fragrance. The notes include Texas cedarwood, oud, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, guaiac wood and pashminol.
