Heeley's Esprit du Tigre might be just what you're seeking. To my nose, it can easily be summed up by two notes: cardamon and 7 Up. It's very spicy, fresh, sparkling, and sweet, with a faint warmth to it that's very hard to describe. It does NOT smell like tiger balm, which is its inspiration, apparently.
In general, cardamon has tendency to be a top note ( i.e. fade quickly ), so an all-day cardamon fragrance isn't easy to achieve. The closest I've found to that is Clive Christian X For Men, which has my favorite cardamon note in perfumery ( intense, rich, realistic ), and lasts a good three hours or so before fading into pleasant but unmemorable powdery woods.
