    Default Smi-Moern Wrm, Wooy, Spcy Orental ?

    Im looking for a semi-modern oriental that is woody & spicy without being overly sweet. Im not a tobacco fan, so Im not crazy about Tom Ford or Tom Ford Extreme if that helps and Im not really into huge vanilla bases either.

    I stated this in another thread I would like more along the lines of Chanel Allure or Boss Bottled but more exotic/niche like. More spicey, and perhaps a tad less sweet.

    Something warm, woody, spicey without getting cloyingly sweet.... ????

    Thanks guys!

    L'Anarchiste? Eau Lente? Jaisalmer? Hritage? Perhaps Basala, if you can track it down.

    Guerlain's L'Instant Pour Homme came immediately to mind, followed by L'Artisan's Mechant Loup, and I know others will follow. I will update when that happens.

    Edits:
    Oh...maybe Ulrich Lang's Nightscape. More of a patch, but a woody patch without too much sweetness. You'd like.

    Gucci Envy would be an obvious pick.

    L'Occitane Eau des Baux.

    Oh yeah, and Hermes Rocabar fits your description.

    Or what about L'Air du Desert Marocain?
