Wood will dom­i­nate your bath­room cab­i­net this sea­son

WOOD, IT SEEMS, is what you’re sup­posed to smell like this au­tumn. It makes sense, re­ally. We’ve left be­hind the cit­rusy aban­don of sum­mer, and we’re yet to sub­mit our­selves to the oily, musky rich­ness of win­ter, so some­thing in-be­tween is about right. Woody notes, such as san­dal­wood or cedar, are warm and spicy but still work well along­side greener, fresher scents, and form the base for some of the best men’s fra­grances. There’s a glut of brand-new woody num­bers this au­tumn: Bul­gari has used wood barks, essences and resins, while Bot­tega Veneta has cre­ated three fra­grances based on the trees found in the Pal­la­dian gar­dens of Veneto, north­ern Italy. Here are eight of the sea­son’s best.
