We all know bamboo. Pandas love it. In the garden, it grows like wildfire and can be invasive (bamboo’s one of the fastest-growing plants on earth).  But in perfumery – where it’s surprisingly widely-used – it’s woody, dry, green and almost paper-like, used to conjure up nature in both feminine and masculine fragrances.  Bamboo is of course also linked with Asian culture:  it’s the Chinese symbol of longevity, while in India it’s a symbol of friendship.
