Woody scents with a woody aroma are ideal for those who prefer an earthy spritz of nature. Colonia Intensa from Italian luxury brand Acqua di Parma (HK$670) (top left) is the first scent from the brand dedicated to men, and decidedly masculine with a woody-leather tang. The scent is wrapped in cedarwood, lignum vitae, benzoin and musk. Other notes include cardamom and ginger, myrtle and mugwort. The scent is packaged in Acqua's trademark bottle and yellow packaging. Other products in the line include an aftershave (HK$460), shampoo and shower gel (HK$290) and deodorant (HK$265). Following on from the launch of F by Ferragamo for women last year, the brand now launches its male equivalent. Described as a scent in the woody/amber olfactory family, ingredients in F by Ferragamo pour Homme (HK$425/50ml) (top right) include black pepper and tree resin labdanum.
