Light forest on the lake shore ... for nature lovers, but not for lumberjacks!
I had already feared to find myself here olfactorily in the wood-cutting department of a DIY store. Fortunately, that's not the case. On the contrary: although I don't want to deny a certain "sawmill proximity", the violet quickly becomes clearly noticeable and counteracts the somewhat creaky start with its flowery-sweet power. Also the white pepper is clearly perceptible for me and spices the woody basic structure with pleasant sharpness.

When I think about the Rocky Mountains, the forest that gives the name is clearly located on a lake. Because somehow I also perceive a breath of fresh aquatics. It may be that the lily is responsible for this or simply the interaction of the ingredients mentioned. The air is rather humid like after a downpour and flows around me at head height. That means: Nobody has to fear crawling around on the forest floor with RMW! ;-)

RMW reminds me remotely of the good old Sander-Davidoff-Bogner period and its woody-spicy classics. Unfortunately, RMW can't really keep up with H & S and is a bit more one-dimensional. Nevertheless I like the fragrance, because it gets along completely without sweet airs and citric tangyness and the wood does not cover everything, as the name possibly suggests. In any case, it can be worn all year round and is also very suitable for the office. I don't see the check shirt and the axe in my hand as knitted sweater and pencil.

If you think all this is great in principle, but like it a bit more exciting and seductive, I recommend you to take "Kenzo Jungle"

The scent of forest, wood with leaves, wet rock
Like almost all He Wood cologne collections, Rocky Mountain Wood opens with a pleasant burst of violet leaves soaked in pure alcohol suspension, so pungent yet with a delicate touch. To complete this Mountain accord, floral notes of delicate lily and faint white pepper are well blended together, creating an aroma that really reminds open air and space.

A woody fragrance with smoky vetiver accord as a dominant note, the heart is a kind of like Encrè Noir with that unmistakable pencil sharpener inky note, so dark, so rich of manliness, so damn good.
The Wood accord of the heart is wet, the Canadian moist cedarwood pulses, the whole redolence stings like the smoke from bonfire leftover.

And then it comes the Rocky accord of the base notes: frozen mineral amber, the right touch of musk, and the resinous incense. The three main accords listed in the name are really reminiscent of the scent of forest, wood with leaves, wet rock, and in their drying the notes appear giving a special mineral pinch, making something very realistic in the matter of aroma, is really an olfactory journey, a fragrance that, in my opinion, is on the verge of perfection.

The bottle that encloses He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood is a duplicate of He Wood’s bottle, an elegant shape made from glass and natural wood, this time the wood’s color scheme is much darker, and the inner juice is dark green.

I seem He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood brings the whole concept of the woody perfume to a more sophisticated level, ideal for a man with refined taste. It is a masculine fresh woody scent for daytime use, a complete outdoor perfume for nature lovers, but it can be worn anywhere, anytime, at home as well as at the office. This superbly blended perfume is a continuous delight, that has a unique aroma that captivates you and your colleagues and companions, it is a real compliment getter. Made for grown men, very long lasting with moderate sillage. I have classified this jewel as a fall and winter scent, although it might work well in early spring. Rather, for summer I prefer its siblings and the original of course!

Great longevity. decent projection. The smell is a pass
Wow i am impressed. I am not really a fan of the scent itself, but the longevity is amazing. One spray just passed the 14 hours mark on my skin. Decent projection was still there after 6 hours, then it turns slowly into a skin scent.

Unlike La nuit de L'homme which baaaarely lasts 6 hours in total, and the last three are just a powdery mess, this one keeps its integrity all this time and you definitely know that you sprayed Rocky Mountain on yourself, and not a cheap baby powder.

Overall i find the smell to be a bit cloying in the beginning, even for colder weather, and it could definitely considered unisex. The violet in it gives a very strong feminine vibe.

Subtle and wonderful woods
This is a subtle yet wonderful vetiver scent.

Imagine you're walking in a rainy forest - thats its smell.

Some florals with a clean and gentle vetiver note and a bit of cedar makes this fragrance very good yet inoffensive.

Smells elegant and it's an all-year-around fragrance. Definetely worth a bottle.

A Woody Floral Scent That Offers Great Value...
A BIG thumbs up on this one from me. The floral top notes are OK, but uninspiring. My first reaction was "why all the hype on this one?" Then came the mid and base notes... Very nice cedar/flinty scent that lasts and lasts. Every time I wear RMW, I like it a bit more, and such a great value too at discounted prices online... Definitely five stars value-wise, 4 stars out of five outright.

Legitimately niche inspired - meaning strange and simple. Imagine cedar mulch and vetiver made into a liquid - Smooth and almost aquatic.+4

Violet-vetiver so simple and delightful it's a wonder the other houses aren't making theirs. Spray it on your face for sufficent projection.+1
