Woodhue by Faberge originally came out in 1944 and was released in both a masculine and a feminine version. The bottle I found in full packaging is the feminine Cologne Extraordinaire from the 60s or very early 70s. I knew very little about it when I got the bottle except that it's supposed to be rather unisex and obviously wood-themed. I was thrilled to discover that Woodhue is a woody chypre with a spicy undercurrent. The wood, a somewhat thin cedar-sandalwood blend, smells appropriately aged and smooth, laced with something that smells to me like cinnamon and clove. The juice in my bottle has little to no top notes-- citrus, jasmine (and some say orange blossom as well). It's all about the base, which isn't a bad deal, since we're talking a really nice sandalwood here, a pungent musk and a mossy vetiver that has a vintage feel to it.
Fabergé perfumes disappeared years ago. Another company bought the rights to the names and perhaps also the formula, but I have no idea what they smell like. Personally, I'm more curious about the Parfum Extraordinaire concentration of Fabergé fragrances; I don't think I ever came across the bottles you see in the ad above.
