    Default Any suggestions for fragrances without bergamot or lemon top notes?

    I'm looking for fragrances without bergamot and lemon/citric top notes. Seems like a lot of fragrances have this citric top notes, which I find very annoying. The ones without the citric top notes are way too sweet or too spicy. Basically, I'm looking for an inexpensive fragrance that smells soapy or woody with no spiciness or musky base. Your suggestions are much appreciated.

    If you want soapy straight from the bottle, check out the Prada scents (Prada Amber does have Bergamot listed, but I can't smell it).

    It's very difficult to find something like this.

    Even Dior Homme has a certain soapiness without citrus and musk, but certain drawbacks too:

    1) while not as expensive as niche, still quite pricey
    2) its flankers Dior Homme Sport and Dior Homme intense might also be worth testing

    Thank you everyone for your kind suggestions. I've checked them out, and they are quite pricey. I have bought many inexpensive fragrances, and they all have this similar problem. 3 of them are okay, but they are a bit spicy and loud. I'm going to the store now and sniff some fragrances. Hopefully, there is something interesting...
