Â* I don't know all the expressions used in scent descriptions, but I'm looking for an every-day scent, something unique, that's not so expensive I would have to mortgage my house to buy! (In other words, no Creed.) I want something non-floral, non-citrusy, and not-too-fresh or sweet, and NO vanilla. (Would this be considered "dry"?) I have tried Bulgari, which smells like tea bags, and it isn't bad, but it's boring (except for the newer Bulgari Aqua, which is "just okay". Here's what I like: woods and spices, although the REALLY spicy scents are too strong (I really like Gucci Pour Homme (except for the vanilla: way too much), but I DON'T like Gucci Envy: way too much cinnamon. I also don't like anything that smells like sage, or juniper, or rum. But there's a common note in my favorite scents: pepper. I am definitely seeking something NON-floral, and masculine; maybe something that smells like sesame seeds, or pretzels, or trees. I like the smell of cedar, redwood, cypress, and fir (I even like pine, if not overdone like Pine-Sol), but Gucci Rush didn't do much for me. I will admit I like CK's Truth because it smells exactly like grass to me (as does 212), but it's a little too fresh for my taste. Soul by Curve for Men is different, but it dries down to Bora Bora, which I already have. I like peppery Spark Seduction for Men, and Burberry London (although it's a little fresh), but not for every day wear. Any suggestions?
