    Yes, it does

    Sahlini Parfums L'Homme. It's not really known here at basenotes, but it's the result of an indian-french cooperation. From its description:

    "The fresh, spicy and woody presence of a noblemen from India.
    Marine notes, petitgrain, rosemary, pine, clove, nutmeg, cedarwood, sandalwood and a modern twist of airy jasmin."

    M7 and M7 fresh have that Asian (chinese, to be specific) medicinal vibe to it. Tam Dao has that Indian feel to it.

    Not exactly spicy, but definitely an oriental. Samsara smells Indian to me, love it.

    Opium and Opium PH for certain.
    Lp9 is Opium PH on steroids, so it's a no-brainer.
    Samsara is essential for your category.
    Hammam Bouquet is unique and popular 120 odd years after conception.
    Jaipur is classic, unique, probably the most Oriental feeling thing on the market.

    That's my list without including the maybes.
