both have this sort of vibe, too.
Arg, the pain! I was sickeningly proud of myself because I thought I would click this thread open and see that I'd be the first to say Diptyque's odd srub woody weirdness of L'Eau Trois. Strolly foiled me and denied me my vain pride by getting it on this thread first. Now I'm going to be miserable. (It's a weird one, of sunbleached scrub woods, it's very dry, there's a lot of herbal leaves in it too, that also smell dry, probably sage, and there is no citrus or sweet to it. It reminds me of an old tree stump with moss on it in the sun surrounded by a field of dead grasses. It really works beautifully.)
I also want to second the wise above who post about Aqua di Parma Colonia. It's another favorite of mine.
