Top 10 Woody Fragrances For Him

May 09, 2024 6 min read

Do you love having a stroll through the forest and being at one with nature? Do you love breathing in that scent of the earth and the warmth of the environment? If that’s the case, then you might want to associate your signature scent with this. Luckily, it’s not hard for men to find a fragrance that evokes the essence of nature; all you need to look for is one that has woody notes. 

Woody fragrances often have a blend of rich and aromatic notes of cedarwood, sandalwood, or vetiver. They help you keep a relationship with the environment and earth, no matter where you are in the world.

Here are the top 10 woody fragrances for him that you might want to try out: 


Terre d’Hermes

Terre d’Hermes is one of the ultimate woody fragrances for him, especially since it combines the essence of the earth and the sky, giving you a taste of nature. Crafted by perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, it combines a citrusy freshness with a woody depth, giving your senses the perfect gift. It has opening bursts of orange and grapefruit, and then settles with a musky cedar and vetiver. 

If you wish to try out a similar alternative, which is perfect day or night, you can try The Fragrance World’s Statement, which offers a broad range of notes from patchouli and peppers to atlas cedarwood. 




Invictus by Paco Rabanne is the perfect woody scent that makes you feel on top of the world. Inspired by the spirit of competition, it blends both freshness and warmth to make you feel like a champion of your own. As you spray this fragrance on you, you’ll notice a surge of marine accord and grapefruit, followed by bay leaf, jasmine, and the base of guaiac wood and patchouli. 

The Fragrance World has a beautiful alternative for you to try out, with almost the same notes as the original. You will notice the top notes of marine accord and laurel leaf, followed by the heart notes of grapefruit and base notes of guaiac wood. 




Halfeti by Penhaligon is a unisex fragrance, ideal for men, that will take you away to the heartland of Turkey, a small village based along the Euphrates River. Named after this tiny town, it’s known for its rare black roses, and this is shown in the scent. You’ll notice a burst of citrus and saffron, followed by rose petals, rich leather and oud. It then settles with amber and patchouli, offering an elegant yet exotic fragrance. 

For an alternative option, you can always try out the Halfeti Charm by The Fragrance World. This interpretation of the luxurious fragrance offers a similar, unique blend of dark rose, spicy black pepper, and smoky oud.

Tobacco Vanille

Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford is another unisex fragrance beloved by men. It combines the warmth of tobacco with the sweetness of vanilla in an intoxicating combination. This cosy scent opens with spicy tobacco and blends seamlessly with creamy vanilla, cacao, and tonka bean. Finished with a base of dried fruits and woody accords, it's a unique blend you won’t experience anywhere else. 

And when we say you won’t find it anywhere else, you can find something pretty close to The Fragrance World’s alternative. TV is a fragrance inspired by London, with top notes of tobacco leaf, heart notes of tonka bean, and base notes of druid fruits and woody notes. 



Bleu de Chanel

Bleu de Chanel is one of the most elegant fragrances available for men, exuding masculinity and mystery at the same time. It opens with a burst of citrusy grapefruit and lemon and then starts to settle with a blend of spicy pink pepper and aromatic herbs, adding to the complexity of the scent. The heart brings out a fusion of cedar and sandalwood and fi with a hint of labdanum. 

You can also always give The Fragrance World’s Blue a try too. This masculine scent has almost the same notes as Bleu de Chanel but with a few changes. It exudes top notes of lemon, grapefruit and pink pepper, heart notes of melon, ginger and nutmeg, and is completed with cedar and sandalwood base notes. 




Enjoy a luxurious sensory experience with Decadence by Marc Jacobs. This woody fragrance for him is a treat to the senses with its opulent blend of rich and velvety notes. As you place this intoxicating scent on for the day, you’ll notice an opening of plum and saffron, followed by Bulgarian rose and jasmine sambac. If that’s not enough, it’s finished with a base of liquid amber, vetiver, and papyrus wraps. 

For something slightly different, you might want to opt for Decadency by The Fragrance World. Offering a unique blend of rich, woody notes of vetiver and iris, you can also enjoy a hint of sweetness from plum alongside a smooth saffron.



Allure Homme Sport

Allure Homme Sport by Chanel brings out the athlete in any man with its alluring scent of both masculinity and elegance. As you breathe into it, you’ll notice a burst of mandarin and orange, settling into a blend of spicy black pepper and aromatic cedarwood. The heart of the scent is a fusion of neroli and mint, followed by a hint of tonka bean and musk.

Cherry Smoke

Tom Ford’s Cherry Smoke may fool you in the name by thinking it’s a sweet fragrance, but it definitely has a woody side. While you do get the sweetness with an opening of ripe cherry, it starts to evolve with the scents of aromatic tobacco and spicy clove. This complex scent has a heart of oud wood and finishes off with a base of warm vanilla and musk that lingers all day.

While it may not be the same, The Fragrance World’s alternative Cherry Fume has its own magic to it. It uses a dark cherry to start off the fragrance, followed by the presence of osmanthus and smoked wood. It furthers into exotic saffron, leaving you with a head-turning scent.
