Halston man Amber is woody, very inexpensive.

Liz Seville says:

If you want a woody fragrance – can you get hold of Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Woman – it is very feminine.
I’m interested in the fact that you overloaded yourself with fragrance by reviewing.

Leila Sharabianlou says:

Something woody.. I never thought I would like Tam Dao by Diptyque but I recently tried it and it is so meditative and cozy! It smells of sweet wet wood which sounds weird. You can easily layer it to make it more floral.

Glenda Holding says:

PS. Your not weird just from Land Of Oz. Love from fellow Aussie. ❌❌

Greg Perrin says:

Natalee, you’re a lovely and charming young woman with a lovely family. What fun to see a small slice of your life with your children. What a handful of joy and fun, and a little chaos, they all seem to be. And, you are clearly a very good mom. Glad you still have all your hair! Had noticed that you stopped producing videos for a while, but glad you’re back. You introduced me to investigating Arabian Oud fragrances. I have quite a few now. I am the collector sort. I have not taken to the minimalism trend (I don’t think it is actually a trend in America, yet) but I know I have to stop acquiring so many wonderful fragrances, because I’ll never be able to use them up in the years of life I have left!

For a very nice unisex woody fragrance that is gentle and pleasant, look into Creed Royal Oud. A bit of cocoa husk, woody/spicy, but not so much oudy, really. It’s quite beautiful. Blessings to you and your family!

WildDoveX says:

You were asking about a wood fragrance yet still feminine.  I’ve been testing the new Mon Guerlain edp and it might fit the bill. The sandalwood is subtle and comes up more in the drydown, but overall it’s very light, feminine, proper. I think you might like it since you like Chanel #5 eau premiere (original). See if you can get a sample.  Another is D&G pour Femme (also the “Intense” version, which is very similar but many say softer and closer to the body, with less marshmallow and more tuberose perhaps), another one with sandalwood but a complex fragrance with marshmallow, raspberry, etc. Samples and rollerballs are out there, try ebay for all of these.

There is a new woody floral coming out called Woman by Ralph Lauren. Boston Store had a tester, but they didn’t have any bottles for purchase yet.

Marci LK says:

What about Creed Royal Princess Oud?

Your son is crazy. “I love my armpits”. Your girl made me smile. I’m still smiling. She should do a toothpaste advert. Lovely set of teeth.
On another note I would slowly die inside if I had to reduce my stash of beloved scents. I was even afraid that the little girl would drop the bottle of Joy. Like seriously afraid.

Cherylene says:

ah what a joy family chaos is. I’m hoping we can all get together for our annual August family fun day. I’m heading up the coast now and I’m late lol ♥ but I’ve caught up on your videos yayyyyy

Mikaela Emily (sapphira31) says:

My favorite is Armani Si, which is soft, a little woody, slightly musky and ambery, with currant undertones. Probably too feminine for what you’re going for. I also adore 4711, but it doesn’t last, and this tuberose one from Vermont Country Store. Honestly I could cull my entire collection of about nine perfumes to those three.

Your kids are so great! I hope I have at least a son and a daughter when I’m ready, but your three are perfect (and grating, I’m sure).

Misan says:

Thanks for another video Natalee. Seems like you’ve gone through a lot in the last 2 years. Also appears you’ve become stronger and wiser for it. Luckily, you obviously haven’t lost your sense of humour. For an airy woody spicy fragrance, you can try SJP Stash (it’s her new perfume, it’s unisex and it’s amazing). Love your wee family 🙂

Bonnie L says:

A wood fragrance…do you know Bvlgari Omnia? That one has a soft cedar note. It is described as a chai tea scented. It is discontinued, but still available at good prices on internet retailers. Nice video, thanks. <3

Hey you’re back. I Spray my cats and kids ,furniture…

Fafima El Koua says:

I have 2 and take my daughters.

M Maddox says:

Great to see you !!! I agree it was to hard me to maintain a ton of things. I’m much happier with just a few really nice items. I still enjoy getting samples in trying new things but I am way much less of a buyer. Which has freed me ! We did really miss you though and love your opinions! So anytime you want to do a review with that maybe just samples we would love it!
