Body Kouros, Endymion - two of my favs.
Well I bought Armani Code and I'm enjoying its sweet and sexy qualities. I think this is the kind of cologne I like best. I want one more to add variety to my wardrobe, and would appreciate suggestions. I don't want anything niche, but I'm open to any designer suggestions you might have.
One requirement: it must be liked by women.
I should add that I have very little experience with gourmands and orientals, and I'm willing to experiment. I don't go to the clubs, so it should be something wearable.

You will never find a fragrance that will be liked by all women. Doesn't exist. Sorry to break it to you. How about this? Find something sweet & sexy that you like? Then when you're walking around feeling wonderful because you're enjoying your fragrance so much, the confidence you are exuding might be 'liked by women'.
As far as a sweet and sexy suggestion: How about The One for Man by Dolce & Gabanna?
Body Kouros (which smells NOTHING like it's namesake) and L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme.
I haven't tried Endymion but I read lots of good things about it.
None of these are particularly loud either.

Le Male, Varvatos classic, 1 Million, JOOP! Homme
Valentino V...Sweet with a kick of spice (almost like a modern rendition of Opium or something)
I shouldn't answer for Vulcan, but I couldn't resist. I don't see him as the A*Men type...
you can get it super cheap online and its often at Marshalls or TJ Maxx. i'd recommend testing it first though, ive heard some people say its a "medicinal cherry" smell but i never got that vibe
in response to the A*Men comments...id try it first. stuff gave me a horrible headache the first try but needless to say i love the stuff now. id wear it daily if i didnt own my other gourmands. DEFINITELY dont recommend blind buying it

Le Male, A Men, The One, Body Heat (very underrated)
Le Male getting the most compliments out of the 2
Where's Le Grand Duc?! It would be about time for him to suggest: DIOR HOMME
The other fragrance that has not yet been suggested is: Jaipur pour Homme.
There are a lot more great orientals, but most of them are niche and unisex, so probably won't be suitable for you.
Jaipur pH, Dior Homme Intense, Chanel Antaeus (Manly but the beeswax keeps a sweetness to it), Lolita Lempicka au Masculin are all worth a shot if you like Code. Also Andy Tauer l'au Desert Marocain would be a perfect fit, although its niche.
Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme
Check out my NEW Aussie sale / trade thread here -
I must recommend to you Daddy Yankee, don't let the name fool you, it is sex in a bottle. It smells very much like Perry Ellis in the opening, but takes more twists and turns while on your skin. I did a review on it which I'd like to think is one of my more accurate reviews. Best of all, it can always be found at TJ Maxx or Marshall's and comes with a low price tag.
When looking for something sweet and sexy, I know first hand that it can be confused with gourmand; while I do enjoy many gourmands, there's definitley a huge difference between gourmand and sweet. Gourmands emphasize on the sweet foods, while sweet fragrances just add that little sweetness that differentiates it from a gourmand, or from even a spicy fragrance. I think if you like Code, Daddy Yankee may be but what you're looking for, I can use another bottle myself. It also projects much better than Code, which to me sits pretty close to the skin.
Opium pour Homme
You can pick it up at Walmart rather cheap and it's a great scent.
Bogart Pour Homme
Arpege Pour Homme
