    Default Earthy/wood scents

    Looking for suggestions for a cologne to try the two I own and love in this category are encre noir and gucci ph. I do have guerlain vetiver and its nice as well but more of a subtle & clean version. If its of any help my wardrobe isn't hidden so if that gives you a sense of what I have & like or dislike.

    I am planning on checking out Tom ford Grey Vetiver.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you like vetivers. There are so many to try! Encre Noir and Guerlain are classics but I love Tauer's Vetiver Dance, Le Labo's Vetiver, and Fumidus. For an inexpensive Vetiver, though, Etro does quite well. Lorenzo Villoresi, too.

    But, if you're looking for woody in general, Bond's Silver Factory is fantastic, Dyptique's Tam Dao comes to mind, and so does Tom Ford for Men.

    Tom ford Grey Vetiver is even cleaner than Guerlain Vetiver.

    As a suggestion, Terre D'Hermes is very earthy

    You should try Rochas Lui, similar to Gucci PH, very woody, long lasting and cheap!

    I own Terre D'hermes and it's a great one as well that I've used for awhile.

    I also own Lui by Rochas and I find it offensive? The sweetness of the vanilla just seems to trash the whole scent for me like it doesn't belong. Might also be that the projection is enormous and I prefer something a little closer to the skin.

    I will see if I can find a place to test tauer vetiver dance I believe Holts Renfrew in Canada may have it. I plan on visiting the store anyway to see FM's vetiver extraordinaire.

    Someday's I wear just a straight patchouli oil because I like the earthyness of it.

    if you have money to spend, you owe it to yourself to sample some oud oils. If you haven't already that is.

    Yeah, I use pure essential patchouli oil for over 30 years.
    As saripatates mentioned, try oud oil!

    If you are a fan of vetiver, I'd highly recommend trying Bourbon Vetiver essential oil from Aqua Oleum. To my nose this is the best vetiver scent, sweet and earthy, with the widest dynamic range and insane longevity. It's very cheap and is a fantastic bang for your buck.

    I came across a website(oudselect) with a oud sampler 5 of their top ouds for 50$. I'm not sure how reputable the website is as everyone seems to just speak of Oriscent.
