Serge Lutens Chene is completely centered on wood, overlaid and deepened with immortelle, saps, tonka, rum, thyme and beeswax. An unusual take on wood. Chene is in the Woody fragrance group.
Reviews of Serge Lutens Chene from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose.
from perfumesmellinthings - "Chene is of course French for Oak, and Chene is a very woody scent. It's the smell of a walk amongst the tall trees of an oak forest in the warmth of summer, the secret earthiness revealing itself under the crisp leaves on the forest floor. There are hints of what smell to me like cumin and lily, with immortelle and honey and rum absolut adding a rich earthiness that never threatens to overpower. The scent is powerful, but not especially "masculine"; women I know wear it and wear it well. Like most SL scents, its staying power is excellent, unlike most SL's its sillage is also quite excellent, so men should use a light hand."
from olfactoriastravels - "Chêne is a dry woody scent, that still bears traces of the Lutens trademark oriental fruit stew with the idea of leather swirling around the edges. Very linear and to the point, Chêne reminds me of traditional leather chypre scents, but in a very wearable, and – yes – comfortable way."
