I really liked this one, though I have the feeling I was also a sucker for the packaging and marketing. Isn’t it pretty? And being from the West Coast of Canada, the idea of a bit of Rocky Mountains in spray-on form evoked both nostalgia and nationalism for me.
Fragrantica has a rather useful description:
Dsquared² He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood was inspired by Canadian mountains and, as its name suggests, it is designed and dedicated to fans of nature. It is composed of rocky notes, mountain aromas and woody accords. The fragrance was created by Daphne Bugey, of such notes as amber, incense and musk, which reflect rocky notes, along with violet, Canadian lily and white pepper. Vetiver and cedar finish the composition.
The reviews really are quite good too.
Basenotes, which also is a useful source of information, has generally pretty good reviews too.
It really does smell woodsy to me, like a cold, crisp morning in the late fall, not super cold yet, but cool, and walking through an evergreen forest and there’s the smell of the woods and a bit of dirt and moss.
And the packaging is beautiful. I found a bottle of the regular He Wood on sale, so I’m going to try that one now for a while…
