    Question What fragrance would you recommend based on these notes?

    I'm PRETTY sure these are the notes I like from these different fragranced, but not certain (I'm no perfumer, lol)

    I like all of these below fragrances, but still haven't found the "perfect scent" for me. Based on the below, what do you think I would like?

    From CK Euphoria - ginger pepper, sage, patchuli
    From Burberry Men - sandlewood, cedar
    From A&F Fierce - Brazillian Rosewood

    I'm looking for a good daytime fragrance, somewhat fresh and exciting, but also dry, airy, and woody, with perhaps a slight touch of amber at the base....

    I still haven't found my "signature scent" - and its kinds frustrating.

    What do you think I would like based on the above?

    Thanks in advance!

    PS - I also like the aeromatic qualities of Terre d'Hermes FWIW

    Perhaps you could try Comme des Garcons 3 - it's unisex, but it's a very nice one and it has most of the notes you mentioned.

    Or maybe Cerruti Image...

    +1 to CdG3. I love Terre d'Hermes and I also like CdG3's Kyoto. Incensy, but I'm not sure I would say there is that amber note in there. Dry, airy, woody are definitely there.

    If you want a "super cheapo" that meets that criteria (and is not typical "drug store" quality), I suggest Cuba Red.

    Indeed, try the Costume National 21, it kinda fits your description.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    It is a bit costly but amazing. It also fits the note requirements you suggest, as well as having that dry, woody fragrance.
    Tom Ford Arabian Wood.

    And also I have a hunch you'll like Truefitt's Trafalgar.
    A unique fresh/woody that is actually decently woody.

    Perhaps Burberry The Beat. Very underrated, awesome peppery opening that dries into a more leathery/woodsy base yet still maintains the opening notes.

    Tommy Bahama You can't really go wrong here, it projects in the heat of summer nicely, yet it's great for cool weather as well. Peppery and woodsy and somewhat tea-like; yet very fresh and versatile.

    This one may be more of a personal choice than something you're looking for..
    If you don't mind a little sweetness from cinnamon and citrus, then Corduroy by Zirh may be exactly what you're looking for. I feel like a broken record since mentioning this so often lately, but it's quite the ideal everyday office scent. Yet it's extremely unique. I came across one other frag that smelled like this and it was Virgilio I believe from Diptyque, which has been discontinued anyways. It's got your unique opening cinnamon/ginger/pepper/cardamom/coconut/slight citrus into a distinctive middle that I associate with the feel of corduroys for some reason. Most notably the nutmeg emerges from the middle, the citrus vanishes, then into a woodsy and slightly vanilla base. Excellent.
