"When it comes to the fragrances in men's cologne, there are basically six different scent families or classifications. These are citrus, spicy, leather, lavender, fougere, and woody. Citrus fragrances are fresh and brisk, and often made from lemons, limes, and oranges, as well as bergamot and other fruits from the citrus family. Spicy scents use ingredients like nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves, or even pepper, basil, and bay oil. Leather scents are smoky yet sweet, and are usually created from cade oil and birch tar. Lavender scents are relaxing and peaceful, and are made from the oil of the lavender plant. Fougere is a blend of lavender, oak moss, and coumarin, that smells like newly mown hay. Finally, the scents in the wood family are derived from vetiver, cedar, rosewood, and sandalwood."
