What kind of fragrance would you recommend that has a nice, strong, woody scent? I would like it to have nice longetivity and go easy on the spices. I want to smell like a freakin' tree man. But still delicious.
I was kind of thinking of the wood scent in Givenchy Pi but minus the vanilla. Let me know! Thanks!
Tam Dao (Diptyque)
Bois d'Ombrie (Eau d'Italie)
Knize Forest (Knize)
Chene (Serge Lutens)
Route du Vetiver (Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier)
Parfum d'Habit (Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier)
Heeley has a cedar fragrance that is very natural and woody.
'Tumulte PH' by Christian Lacroix. Its cedar chips aaallll the waaaaay babyyyyyyyy!
Salvador by Salvador Dali
( Not to be confused with the big lipped surreal bottle: Salvador Dali by Salvador Dali--that's another animal altogether )
I promise you that you'll be the most romantic tree in the forest.
It's discontinued, so it won't be easy to find-- but it'll be well worth it.
You want Pi without vanilla? Give the "GIVENCHY POUR HOMME" a try. It has a red bottle and its a woody spicy scent which is nice IMO.
Actually Pi has a lot of benzoin in the base, so not much about woods but more about resins...
For a nice woody frag that might suit you along the mood of Pi (Mild, sweet, smooth, average complexity, decent projection but not a monster sillage) give He Wood, the new DSquared scent, a try. I think you might like it.
The perfect fragrance for you is Gucci Rush

Interesting choices !
Ava-Luxe Palisander is a glorious, rosewoody all-day delight.
SL's Santal Blanc, too.
Why not Terre D'Hermes ?
And good ole Pino Silvestre ?
I second Tumulte.
I second Vibert's recommendation for Cypress Musc by Creed - the smell of torn tree limbs. I also second the Palisander by Comme des Garcons, since this is slighly more affordable than the Creed and has a unmistakeable sparkling (yet warm) quality to it.
Sorry, but I disagree with the recommendation for He Wood by DSquared - I got very little wood from HW, and lots of 'ozonic' notes that were majorly annoying to my nose.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"

L' Homme Sage by Divine - Modern Woody with great longevity and sillage. Get a sample at Luckyscent. I wore this yesterday and was still getting postive comments 14 hours after application. Doesn't get any better than that.
I like "thebeck"'s choice of L' Homme Sage by Divine.. a little story: I wore that this time last week the day before I went on holiday to Tenerife for a week. I had a couple of sprays to my wrist and neck whilst already wrapped up in my Zara Duffle coat... well guess what I wore the same coat today a week on (shitty weather back in England ) and I could STILL smell it... and quite clear too! GREAT scent!!
Also I would suggest YSL's M7 if you find Gucci Pour Homme a little too woody (although you did say you wanted to smell like a sexy tree man!!).

Try for Saks for Him- It has a wood scent- def unique and one of a kind.
