Hi Teflon, welcome to the board
I wanted to like Platinum Egoiste, but I found it too sharp and cloying on my skin. On others it's fine, so I think it's a skin chemistry thing.
Luckily I found a fragrance that seemed to fit the bill as to what I "wanted" Platinum to smell like. That scent is Creed's Himalaya. It's a little more mellow and has a more of a warm incense accord than Platinum.
If you're looking for other dry woody scents, I would suggest sampling Azzaro Visit, Gucci PH, and Gucci Rush PH.
