I definitely second knightowl! I was going through the posts on this thread, waiting to see if Edition would pop up. I've been deciding whether Edition qualifies re: the wood aspect, and it does. It definitely has the spice, and of the spices, the cinnamon seems most noticeable, but not overly so. The Basenotes pyramid says it also has cedarwood and sandalwood; another pyramid says cedar and fir. I don't really make out an individual wood note, but there is a wood note there...you can sense or smell its strength in the background, if that makes sense. I think the wood also helps to make the scent "dark"...it isn't just the spice that does that. And there's a hint of sage too. Classy yet very wearable!
By the way, I've been a big fan of Carven Homme since I first tried it a few years ago. I suppose I might classify this one as spicy/woody/amber, with a creaminess as part of the drydown (apparently notes of both vanilla and tonka). I like to think of Carven Homme as Son of Bois du Portugal, though CH is a little sweeter (the vanilla).
