    If you get it, make sure it's the bottle in the picture, which I think is discontinued or reformulated, but still readily available.

    Montana Parfum d'Homme, supposedly very similar to the legendary Aramis Havana, which was discontinued until recently.

    That's an intersting suggestion. I love the fragrance, but I don't get anything coniferous in it. It basically smells like I spilled a pitcher of sangria on myself. Fun stuff!

    My first thoughts are Lalique Equus and Geoffery Beene Bowling Green. Not very peppery, but they do have the coniferous, spicy, semi-sweet thing going on.

    Maybe L'Instant de Guerlain might work as well.

    I don't remember Havana having the pine note though. I found it to be drier than MPd'H and with tobacco instead of the pine.

    Ody speaks the truth!

    And I also agree with Suga. Fille en Aiguilles is the sh*t. Please try it.

    I think it has different names in different markets. Here in Canada, it is sold as "Bois D'Orage" (Thunder Wood), with no reference to the slightly cheesy French Lover name.

    FEA was the one that immediately came to mind over here as well.

    Comme des Garcons as a number of "incense / woody" scents. Have fun sampling!

    Hermes Rocabar.
    Best semi-sweet Coniferous scent out.
    Drydown is smooth and sophisticated.

    One of the less talked about semi-sweet semi-spicy Incense scents is Pal Zileri's Sartoriale. But no Coniferous smell there. And of course I 2nd the CDG line sampling, particularly Kyoto/Zagorsk

    You should perhaps try Bowling Green by Geoffrey Beene.

    Yup, it’s French Lover in europe. Malle thought north america wouldn’t get the ironic/tongue-in-cheek naming. Maybe he was right.

    Also, Italian Cypress doesn’t smell dated, it smells retro. And Eau de Baux is gorgeous though to me not very coniferous. Good luck on your quest!
