Description

The Dsquared2 brand offered its first fragrance in 2007, He Wood. The women's companion, She Wood, was launched in 2008. Dsquared2 fragrances are produced in conjunction with ITF Group. The Dsquared2 brand is known for its extravagant and energetic fashion shows, many of which feature musicians and celebrities such as Rihanna and Christina Aguilera making a unique entrance and taking a stroll on the runway. The pair's designs have a loyal celebrity following and the clothes often turn up in music videos or amongst the costumes for a world tour. Madonna commissioned the pair to design the costumes for her 2002 "Drowned World" tour, and Britney Spears included Dsquared2 clothing in her Circus tour in 2009. Where would you wear it? “I think it’s more of a masculine scent. It’s the sort of fragrance you’d spray on after you’d showered or exercised when you want to feel refreshed.”

Looking at the bottle, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that this Eau de Toilette would be instantly green, woody and aromatic. And although it mellows into a more woody-aromatic base, it offers a surprisingly fresh, invigorating and positive opening. If you’re a fan of DSqaured2’s Wild, Green Wood could be your new favourite; there are a few similar elements, but it’s given a more citrus, aromatic twist. And for those familiar with Wood Pour Homme, you’ll recognise some notes – such as lemon and vetiver – but they’re given a mix-up here, resulting in a more woody-aromatic tone. As the scent continues to warm on your skin and mellows throughout the day, you get to enjoy a blend of sensual, seductive and elegant notes. The top notes are lemon, santolina and bourbon pepper. Lemon creates an ultra-fresh, zesty feel that becomes more vibrant and energetic as it contrasts with aromatic santolina. And bourbon pepper acts similarly to a sprinkling of pepper in your food; it enhances and enlivens the scent, adding another dimension to the fragrance.

How Long Does Green Wood Last?

And if you really want to intensify and prolong this scent, layering it with an ancillary product is necessary. Thankfully, DSquared2 offers an aftershave balm, deodorant and shower gel so you can enjoy the aroma in a variety of ways. The heart notes are cedarwood, vetiver and resin accord. These notes create a very woody, earthy tone that feels warm on the skin. At this stage, I like to imagine that I’m walking through a Canadian forest – walking past a pile of freshly cut wood. So if you want to know what Green Wood smells like – and of course, learn all about the notes, bottle and longevity – read on… Green Wood is marketed as a fragrance for men, but we’d always encourage you to buy a fragrance that you love – no matter who it’s aimed at. Dsquared2 is a Canadian fashion brand created by identical twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten. The brothers studied at Parsons School of Design briefly before plunging into the fashion world full time, serving as creative directors of Ports 1961.

In 2002, the pair also signed a licensing deal which expanded the brand's offerings into footwear, accessories and fragrances.

What do you think it smells similar to? “I can’t think of a specific fragrance that it reminds me of, but it feels like walking through a forest in springtime, or the smell of freshly cut timber.” The emerald green, curved glass bottle reminds me of the vibrant, luscious shades of a forest filled with conifer trees, while adding a more luxurious feel. The glass is held in a stylish velvet green box that adds a touch of elegance to the experience – and of course, reminds you that it’s a designer fragrance. Dsquared2 have won numerous fashion awards, including the Golden Needle (Spain), La Kore (Italy) and GQ magazine's Best Breakthrough Design Team and Men of the Year (for both GQ Spain and the American edition).

I’m a huge fan of the feminine, fruity-floral counterpart to Green Wood; Red Wood is fresh, sparkling and magnetic. But I must admit that Green Wood gives it a run for its money.

Why Is Green Wood Escentual?

The lemon note adds a more uplifting universal tone that doesn’t feel the need to scream ‘masculinity’, so I think anyone could wear it. However, its woody-aromatic base makes it feel like more of a traditional masculine fragrance. Where would you wear it? “I think it would be great for work. It’s ideal for daytime wear, and you could easily wear it every day. I would say it’s more of a masculine fragrance, although it would be suitable for anyone who wants a fresh, clean scent without having to go down a floral route.”
