The new Bvlgari Man Wood Essence is made for the urban-dwelling man who loves nature

If nothing piques your olfactory sense quite like the earthy combination of dirt and wood, the new fragrance from Bvlgari is one to watch out for. The Bvlgari Man Wood Essence takes its woodsy facets pretty seriously—we’re talking a blend of three bold woods that brings a dash of high-octane energy to the fragrance.

Inspired by a perfect balance between nature and urbanity, Bvlgari Master Perfumer Alberto Moriallas wanted to create an olfatory signature that can encapsulate the dynamism of a city, without eschewing the importance of Earth. “Wood is marvelous, infusing this fragrance with very powerful energy,” says  Morillas. “Hearing the name Bvlgari Man Wood Essence inspired me to combine these intense woody notes from nature.” The notes he had in mind include an exclusive selection of timber and roots from around the world—vetiver from Haiti, cedar wood from Southern United States, and cypress wood from Spain.

Opening with Italian citrus and spice, the Bvlgari Man Wood Essence delivers you to the vibrant landscape of the Mediterranean, with coriander for an unpredictable edge. The woodsy elements then unveil with the deep green aroma of cypress and full-bodied vetiver. Another evergreen, the cedar, lends a smoky impact to the scent, thanks to two different techniques of wood distillation and purification.
