Classic woody perfumes that enjoy iconic status include: Tom Ford Patchouli Absolu, Serge Luten Bois & Musc, Comme des Garcons Wonderwood and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Increasingly, there is overlap between the families of scent. Many modern-day perfumes, for example may contain ingredients or notes that allow them to be classified within more than one fragrance family: For instance, there are fruity-floral scents, aromatic-citrus toilettes and fresh-woody scents.
