After reading reviews and being just a little curious, I finally picked up a bottle of Wonderwood. Being a fan of wood-based fragrances I figured this would be a safe blind buy. I was pleased with this one from the first spray! Nothing offense or unpleasant from the onset and just gets more beautiful as it dries down. The only fragrance that kinda reminded me of this was a limited edition Carolina Herrera fragrance from way back called 'Sensual Vetiver'. Yes, vetiver. Wonderwood is a wonderfully balanced fragrance that belongs in every woody fragrance (i.e. sandalwood, agar, cedar) fan's collection. Love the presentation as well ... but don't like that the bottle doesn't stand up on it's own. I guess that's a CDG thing. -.-
Its soft and dry. Woody dry cedar, a bit of a thinner cedar, sort of transparent, sandalwood, pencil shavings. Blend all the woods you got. Well balanced, all the notes purr along together. Smells modern and a bit softly minimalistic. I love dry woody concoctions, so this should be directly in my wheelhouse, but it just doesnt really stand out incredibly at any point in any way. Doesnt smell bad, or sweet. A sad panda neutral.
