A mighty tree, a mighty base note: this giant redwood member of the cypress family, which grows for thousands of years, is becoming popular in men’s fragrances – and a handful of women’s, for its dry earthiness. Because the Sequoia sempervirens tree is endangered, however – through loss of habit and over-logging – chances are it’s a ‘fantasy’ sequoia.
