Woody fragrances are dominated by wood scents. From sensual sandalwood to edgy cedar to musky accords, wood notes add depth and staying power to other scents. This varied and versatile category includes oakmoss, amber, rosewood, guiac, oud, vetiver  and patchouli. These perfumes with their woody middle note, are warm and opulent when based on sandalwood or patchouli. Cedar and vetiver make them dryer. These warm, dry and elegant masculine accords often contain a dash of citrus or aromatic notes. 

The spicy notes of perfumes are fiery, bold, strong and perplexingly bitter-sweet at their core. Spices have vivid colors and very sharp distinct scents. A soft sandalwood fragrance warmed by bold spicy notes such as pepper, nutmeg, cloves or cinnamon.
