    I tried several 'woodsy' colognes tonight and my wife hated all of them so I guess I'm no longer looking for a woodsy cologne.

    Any Low-Cost Woodsy Colognes?

    I haven't tried a 'woodsy' cologne in quite a few years (probably at least 12 years). Mostly it's been all about citrus/aquatics since I had Hugo by Hugo Boss. I think that's the last one that I...
