Hi everyone !
I need your help.
I' m looking for a nice, wearable and attractive perfume, in the aromatic-woody ( fougere ? ) category.
I like those great powerhouses from the '80s, as I could remember them...
There were some great sweet -woody- aromatic perfumes, and I like that mood, but I would prefere in a more modern vibe.
I don' t like the popular acquatic-ozonic fragrances from these days, I find them too cheap and without personality. I much prefere some more masculinity and character.
To list some exaples :
John Varvatos : nice, but too powerhouse-like
Penhaligon's Endimion : very nice, elegant and modern, but I find a chocolate note in it, and I don' t like chocolate
Mugler A* Pure Malt : too much gourmand
Mugler Angel : much worse than Pure Malt...
Creed Bois de Portugal : great, austere, warm...could be the ideal, but too oldish for my taste
Chanel Anteus : the same as above
Hermes Equipage / and Bel Ami : the same as above
YSL la nuit edt/edp : so so...
Dior Homme Intense : so so...
Chanel Allure : I don't like
M7 : too medicinal
Nasomatto Duro : too strong, too much patchouli and santal, too sticky
The powerhouses from the '80s I was used to appreciate :
Missoni Uomo ( discontinued) : wonderful
Trussardi Uomo : good , maybe too much leather
Sergio Soldano ( Black version) : very nice
Arrogance Uomo : nice, just a bit cheap...
Azzaro pour Homme : good, but I find it too oldish
I don't like :
Drakkar noir : too fougere
Ho ang club : too medicinal
Cacharel : too much mace/nut and pepper
Roma : too sweet
I love these ingredients : bitter orange- ginger- lemon
Oakmoss ( my favourite wood ever) - Cedar
I don't like very much santal, and I can tolerate musk and amber only if listed just in small amount.
And in general I don' t like patchouli and incense. So, no oriental notes, please.
Just aromatic and sweet-woody, please, with a touch of floral.
Thank you in advance for you help and suggestions.
