    Hey,
    Can anyone recommend a strong Spicy but Fresh scent? Not after something powdery.
    Thanks.

    I'll second Visit (if you like woody spicy, that is), but also throw my beloved Bois de Portugal and (new love) Baie de Genièvre into the mix for even more freshness and clarity.

    Spicy and fresh might fit so many of fragrances. Some of the best spice scents are not neccessarily fresh too such as: Gucci pour Homme, or L'Homme Sage. But for both fresh + spice I recomend these:

    Navegar, L'Artisan Parfumer
    Timbuktu, L'Artisan - fruit and spices and freshness in an exotic iincense fragrance.
    Gris Clair by Serge Lutens
    Rive Gauche by YSL - spicy and fresh bracing and woody way.

    Venezia Uomo by Laura Biagiotti fits the bill perfectly. Unfortunately it has been discontinued but you may be able to find one somewhere.

    Top notes: mandarin, grapefruit (pomelo), lemon, bergamot

    Middle notes: cedar, vetiver, sandalwood, pepper

    bottom notes: ambergris, musk, tonka bean

    and yes, also YSL Rive Gauche would be nice :-)
