    +1 for Jacomo de Jacomo. Very dark, very dry.

    Or maybe Encre Noire (PH)?

    Two suggestions:
    A Quiet Morning by Miller et Bertaux: dry, woody, minty and some curry.

    L'Eau de Gouverneur by Comptoir Sud Pacifique: a citrus fizz at the top that is quickly gone, letting spices like allspice, clove and nutmeg unfold.

    Amouage Epic Man.
    Chanel Antaeus

    Both dry and spicy, though perhaps not orientally fragrant enough for your needs.

    I disagree. My first impulse was "stay with the Tauer, you wont get better than this".

    Driest frag I have EVER come across, only possibly overshadowed by another Tauer - Lonestar Memories. Smells like an ancient library that hasnt been opened in a thousand years.

    It seems like Spezie is definitely popular, as is a couple of the Aramises, Epic Man and the Tauer. I'll try to check out as many of these as I can. Thanks again everybody!

    Here is one that is literally dry (and includes lots of spices):

    http://www.shoyeido.com/product/toku...se-body-powder

    The effect is a bit like a bake sale(spice cookies) at a Buddhist temple. Long lasting, but not obtrusive. Seems to have great potential for layering (although I use it mostly for meditation). And it doesn't require a huge investment!

    Yatagan. It's more sand than spices, but it's so dry your nose will bleed.

    I agree with Timaru. I don't really get any vanilla from LAdDM. Yes, there's heaps of amber but unlike any amber I've smelt before: very dry, not the usual sweet amber as you'd find in Ambre Precieux or Montale's Blue Amber. Timaru, I love your comparison to the smell of an ancient library. A dry, dusty library in the middle of a desert. Amazing, breathtaking stuff!

    I'll throw in some more that haven't been mentioned yet:

    Goutal's Ambre Fetiche, Myrrhe Ardente and Encense Flamboyant

Exotic spices, dry leathers, and warm, rich woods come to mind...I'm imagining something like cinnamon, nutmeg, hot pepper, coriander, cardamom, saffron, ginger, dried fruits, dry leather, frankincense, sandalwood, oudh...shall we call it Route de la Soie (Silk Road)?
    I'm wearing Caron's current Poivre parfum extrait right now.

    It totally spanks the spice rack requirement, even if it is short on leather, oud, and frankincense. And it's plenty dry; I'm parched just thinking about it, nevermind sniffing my arm.
