Notebook Patchouly & Cedar Wood by Selectiva Spa, Notebook Patchouly & Cedar Wood is a men’s cologne that highlights woody, smoky scents, released in 2018. It blends the deep masculine notes of its base with brighter, sweeter notes throughout to create a pleasingly balanced fragrance overall.
Top notes of bergamot, citron and pink grapefruit create a refreshing, juicy splash of citrus, with a slightly bitter edge. The heart notes have a floral, woody tinge that offsets the earlier brightness. The base notes are a warm, woody finish to this scent. Patchouli and cedarwood add some spiciness with a solidly woody tone, for a forest-like, earthy drydown.
