    Creed's Bois du Portugal came right away to my mind after reading you post. Check it out on the directory, no need for me to describe it here.

    Creed, Bois du Portugal or Tabarome Millesime
    Aramis, Havana, if you can get it
    Patricia de Nicolai, New York
    Divine, L'Homme Sage
    Serge Lutens, Fumerie Turque or Ambre Sultan
    Crown Perfumery, Sandringham
    Richard James EdT
    d'Orsay, Le Dandy
    Caron, 3rd Man

    All of these are full-bodied, very sophisticated and masculine compositions, ranging from dry woods to woody with floral aspects, sweet smokiness to rich boozy sweetness. Check the directory for details.
