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

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.

"The force that through the green fuse drives the flower // drives my green age..." Dylan Thomas
Fille en Aiguilles
and possibly Fou d'Absinthe.
+1 for CdG's Zagorsk
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.
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!
