Velvet Wood Fragrance Reviews

This is such a pleasing scent. So sexy and warm yet fresh woody scent. The retail price is an absolute joke, but who cares as its only $108 shipped on beauty spin.com.
My ONLY problem with this fragrance is its longevity. I honestly feel like these companies are slapping an EDP label on their flankers thinking that's what sells but not backing the concentration level up. I could see it not being a big deal on a regular designer line, but an exclusive line? Come on
Ebony wood, benzoin and leather work together in such a electrifying way. I read by one of my favorite perfumers Andy tauer "creating a fragrance to smell so wonderful with just a few notes is much harder to do than with a list of great smelling notes" and this is a great example. This is a crowd pleasing scent all the way.
Scent - 10/10
Longevity 6/10
Projection 6.;/10
Overall 8/10
If the longevity was better and the price was less or if it came in a 100ml to spray more to make up for longevity issues, this would be a 10/10 fragrance. The smell is do pleasing I am comfortable with making that statement.


Edit update ***
I've been wearing{ 4-5 sprays} of this since I got it shipped from beautyspin for $108 by the way, for about a week now guys and I must say, the longevity is actually very much better than I initially portrayed. It's the projection that doesn't last as long as I wish but i along with others can smell this as I move around 8+ hours later. I am confident to say, at this point in time this is probably THE BEST SMELLING scent I currently own in my collection. It really is. It smells so damn good. I must give props to the guy below my post for giving me some free samples after buying a bottle off him off eBay, talk about a small world lol.

One of the better of the velvet collection I have tested. It's subtle, but good. Id pay 30$ for a bottle and be happy I own it. Not 270-500$ even if I were bill gates. Another Gucci pour homme I wannabe.

Very nice warm woody scent, medium sillage and mediocre duration, on my skin at least...

270 Euros here in Greece. I guess the target group are the tourists from the Arabian Emirates, and the unfaithful husbands who want to make it up to their wives, as a divorce and alimony for the rest of their lives will cost them an arm and both legs... With this perfume, they save the legs at least!

Pros: Nice leather accord

Just tested about 20 different high end designers and Velvet Wood was by far the most outstanding scent of them all.



I get a nice leather accord very well blended with wood. I'm not sure if it's ebony wood alone but the combination seems fabulous.



This is a fragrance with high potential to make someone addicted!



4 thumbs up!

Only got wood out of this. A nice scent, not too strong. Warm, spicy, balmy. Not too much going on here. I liked it, but not too crazy about it. Too expensive for what it is. Try it.

Autumn leaves; you may try Montale Patchouli leaves or Les Nereides Patchouli Antique. Both are very autumn frags, with leaves in the background. The Montale is a little bit aristrocratic; cognac, tobacco, chocolate, wealthy library. Les Nereides is much more animalistic and close to nature.

I'm seeking a fragrance that has the scent of damp Autumn leaves in a forest. Any suggestions?

A vague woody fragrance, with limited development. Did not get any leather here at all, just the wood.

Hmmm, D & G do a Lutens? I'll be interested to see what these smell like - it would be nice to purchase decent 'nichey' fragrances but made easily available. Maybe they will return to 'By' form with these or even better, hopefully.
