There are quite a few options when it comes to smoky materials and notes in perfumery. Most of these acquire a smoky touch when extracted, save for castoreum which is designed by nature to contain pyrazines (pyro Greek for fire) so that secretion used by beavers to mark territory really stands out in the natural background.
The smoke agents (from the strongest to marginally smoky): birch tar, spikenard, cade, castoreum, labdanum, patchouli (some), sandalwood (some), and then you have all the fantastic accords such as gun powder, smoked tea and so on.
This edit features perfumes with materials mentioned above and is a good cut across the smoky dimension in perfumery.
