First of all, Shifts and Nsamadi are right on in their recommendations. The CDG Incense series and Voleur de Roses are exactly the scents you need. Of the Incense series, I recommend Jaisalmer (which is spicy, warm, earthy, a tad sweet), Kyoto(which is cedary, relaxing, has a bit of coffee), and Zagorsk (Cool, piney, a bit of iris, very bracing). Voleur de Roses is great for rainy days, because when you wear it, you don't know where the rain ends and you begin. Very damp, earthy, and just a beautiful drydown. Some hate it, so sample first. I love it though, but it BEGS to be worn in the rain.
And it does sound like you need to try the CDG Synthetic series. I've tried them all and I have Skai and Dry Clean. Skai is amazing in my opinion. Very warm, vinyl record smell with some incense and a burnt paper smell. I've gotten alot of compliments, and I wear it when I want to put out the artist vibe. Dry Clean is kind of simple, but very long lasting. Minimalist yes, but there is something carefree and nostalgic to it. Garage and Tar are both very odd, and the drydowns are hard to describe. They may be too weird for you, or they may be just weird enough. Soda is nice, and is true to the name. Also try Odeur 53. Its one of the coolest scents of all time, and it doesn't even seem like a scent sometimes.
Definitely try Voleur de Roses and the CdG Incense and Synthetic series'. And also, as Marlen recommends- try Passage D'Enfer. It doesn't strike me as urban, per se, but its one of my all time favorites.
