    Default A woody, earthy scent

    I'm looking to try a very woody, earthy, perhaps greenish, scent.
    (women's or unisex)

    Anyone know of any scents which are primarily woody/earthy, not too sweet, not too floral, and not too spicy?
    Preferably without vanilla?
    Maybe lots of patchouli?
    Not very girly-girlish?

    Something to wear when dressing down, not up.
    ( When I do dress up it's not that far up... LOL)

    Hope that makes sense.

    Any suggestions?

    Ava Luxe has a lot of fragrances she classifies as "woody": http://www.ava-luxe.com/2008/scentindex/wood.html

    I've not broken out my samples yet, but I ordered a bunch in the "woody" category so I'll report back.

    Ormonde Jayne 'Woman'. Greenish earthen, mossy- divine stuff.

    The most earthy scent I know of is Voleur de Roses from L'Artisan. It is a rose based scent with the feeling of spring rain and wet dirt.

    I think that Patchouli Leaves from Montalle is really good for raw patchouli smell with a greenish tone.

    Tauer L'Air du Desert Marocain - try it!

    Escentric 01 is synthetic cedar with a sprinkling of pepper and incense. Very smooth and otherworldly, definitely unisex -- but not asexual, if that makes sense. It's way overpriced and is mostly Iso E Super, but definitely worth sampling.

    And I'll second L'air du desert -- though I'd characterize it as more 'spice' than 'wood.' Very warm and enveloping.

    You can also look at Sonoma Scent Studio -- there are a few fragrances in the line that are quite "woody"

    I really like SJP's Lovely and it has this quality, and it's inexpensive, too.

    Terre De Bois by Miller Harris. It is unisex, and I think it ticks all your boxes.

    I think a light spray of Guerlain Vetiver would be very nice

    Woody and Earthly? Both names made me think of Chene by Serge Lutens
    More for men than women, in my opinion
