With its bold opening of citrus and bay leaf, Dry Wood is an unabashedly masculine fragrance that harkens back to a time when gender divisions in fragrance—and in other areas of life—were followed. This is the retro scent that we imagine Mad Men's Don Draper would have worn. Do we want to return to that time? Nope—but we sure would like to take a deep, lingering breath of the scent of Don Draper's neck. Notes include cedrat, laurel, black pepper, oakmoss, cashmeran, norlimbanol, sandalwood, and cedar.
