    Default Based on my favorite notes, which scent should I definitely check out?

    First of all, I know there's a directory where you can put your favorite notes in the search box
    However, I don't seem to find much results.

    These are my favorite notes and I would love to find a cologne that combines most of them:

    orange blossom (no neroli, I prefer the natural smell or the scent of mandarins)
    bergamot
    jasmine
    lavender
    tonka bean (or vanilla if it's subtle)
    leather
    incense

    notes I don't like:

    vetiver
    violet
    aoud
    patchouli
    cedar
    ginger

    In general I like powdery scents that are somehow "masculine". You can see Armani Code as a starting point. Others I tend to enjoy more or less: Le Male (albeit too loud), Dior Homme, Body Kouros, etc.

    All responses are much appreciated!

    You should check out Bulgari Black for one. I see it compared to Body Kouros sometimes. It's basically a smokey vanilla smell with a faint clean rubber note.

    I really like Burt's Bees Natural Cologne, though it seems B'sBees does not get much love from B'noters when it comes to reviews.

    The Natural Cologne is so simple and the two big ingredients, are bergamont and orange peel oil.

    It is also 100% natural. I think it pairs up well with Every Man Jack's "Spiced Pepper" body wash, though a big ingredient in that is vetiver.

    Sounds like you should sample Habit Rouge. It does have some spice, but I don't think it's ginger.

    Bvlgari Black may be just what I'm looking for! The Burt's Bee company isn't represented in my country.. I'll see if I can find Habit Rouge but my fear is that it will smell "outdated".
