DSquared2 2 Wood Eau de Toilette Review

Review of DSquared2 2 Wood Eau de Toilette

DSquared2 brings you another soon-to-be-iconic fragrance inspired by the strength and sturdiness of wood. The next in the successful Wood series – following on from Wood Pour Homme, Wood Pour Femme, Green Wood and Red Wood, DSquared2 2 Wood takes the next step in creating unisex fragrance that can be worn by anyone; the Eau de Toilette is a universally appealing sparkling citrus with a woody and musky undertone that’s hard not to love. Read on to find out more…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Like the entire wood series, this scent has a strong sense of woods. The dark citrus, dry woods and green-fresh tone gives the signature a traditional tone that feels effortlessly classic. The bright opening of citron, lemon primofiore and pink pepper is followed by a woody green Haitian vetiver, Virginian and Alaskan cedarwood and silver fir heart. As you wear the fragrance throughout the day, 2 Wood transitions into a sensual base of warm vegetal amber, musk and exclusive mineral vulcanolide, which sits close to the skin for lasting scent.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

The Wood collection is – as you’d guess – inspired by wood. The strong and versatile material influences the entire Wood range from DSquared2; it’s subtle influence can be seen in everything from the ingredients inside to the design of the bottle.

Created by Daphne Bugey and Olivier Cresp, DSquared2 2 Wood looks to outline the feeling of passion and authenticity that can be felt by men and women being themselves as the depth of the woods showcases their passions. The name also nods to the fashion house, which was created by the Caten twins who are two halves of a whole.


You Will Love This If…

Any fan of the Canadian Wood fragrance series should try this Eau de Toilette. Perhaps, you and your partner have worn the his and hers collection in the past, and want to look into wearing a shared woody scent. Or, for anyone unfamiliar with this range – if you love fresh, classic citrus scents with an undertone of woods, you’ll find something to adore about this fragrance.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

To me, DSquared2 2 Wood smells like a moodier Acqua di Parma Colonia; whereas Colonia has bright lemons, this Dsquared2 Eau de Toilette has a darker citrus undertone with a more intense woody side that feels timeless and classic.


Is DSquared2 2 Wood Unisex?

Yes this is a unisex fragrance; the woody citrus Eau de Toilette has been made in a way that appeals to all genders.


What’s The Longevity Like?

This fragrance lasts for about 6 hours on my skin; I had to top up throughout the day to keep the fresh citrus woodiness alive.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

A fan of the collection would recognise the traditional Dsquared2 design reflected throughout the Wood line. The luxurious design of the bottle has a handcrafted magnetic cap with a bark-like texture to mimic the appearance of wood, while it’s embossed with the fashion house’s iconic maple leaf signature to honour the Caten twins’ Canadian upbringing. The flacon features clear, curved glass that allows you to see the yellow-stained Eau de Toilette inside.
