    Question Help finding "Dry, Woody" Aftershaves Please!

    Hi guys im new to this site but like to think id know a bit about fragrances However im still having trouble finding the right fragrance for me. My favourite fragrances can only be described as i smell them, i adore the Dry, Woody almost powdery types. I struggle to find many though in fact im not sure ive found one thats spot on yet.
    I own Burberry Brit, Nina Ricci, Givenchy pour homme, Joop What about adam? and a couple more. They all have notes in i love and some i dont, but i think the main note is Cedarwood. I thought it was vetiver but after smelling some creed this weekend i think its not lol. I came across Cedro by acca kappa on here but its quite expensive and not sure if its gonna be the right one.
    So basically Any suggestions for some smells would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks very much!!

    Welcome! Glad to have you on board.
    You may want to re-think the aftershave aspect, since the best and most intriguing scents are in EDC or EDT format rather than the weaker aftershave.
    You want cedar? I recommend Penhaligons Opus 1870. Superb dry woody notes, and great longevity.

    I agree about Gucci homme by Gucci. In the mainstream sector it's probably what you''d enjoy best.
    You could also try Tauer L'air du desert marocain (available at First in Fragrance and through Tauer's Perfumes ~both sell samples) for an ambery take on dry wood; and perhaps L'eau parfumee au The Vert which has a lovely dry woody base (rosewood and cedar) and is unisex, despite its being featured in the feminine side of Sephora.
