    Default Alternatives to Fahrenheit Absolute (powdery incense)?

    I'm looking for a powdery and incensy oriental similar to FA.

    + What I like with FA: The incense, resionous woods, the level of sweetness, oud, leather - combined with the powder.

    - What I dislike with FA: The violet and the lack of warmer aromas (eg. cardamom, cinnamon, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, etc).

    I can't deal with rose, unfortunately, as many oud based fragrances use rose.

    Ideas?

    Try Songe d'un Bois d'Ete Guerlain. Not powdery though to me. I think we have similar taste. While I have fh and enjoy it, i have the same issue with it. I would also recommend Amouage jubilation and interlude for similar vibe.

    Thanks for your thoughts, I will check them out (I've only tried Jubilation from the bunch)!

    I guess I'm looking for an Armani Code or YSL La Nuit de L'Homme with a heavy dose of incense and/or oud. Other suggestions?

    I really like FA, but am hard pressed to think of anything else all that similar. Perhaps YSL M7 Oud Absolu, YSL Opium pour Homme edt/edp, Histoires de Parfumes 1740 Marquis de Sade, Dior Homme Intense, Guerlain L'Instant pour Homme Extreme, Cacharel Nemo, Cartier Declaration L'Essence pour Homme, Cartier Must pour Homme ( and perhaps the Must L'Essence), Mauboussain M Generation ( under the radar !), and .....that is all that comes to mind at the moment.

    FA is kinda unique to me. So if you do find something, post it here as well. I'd love to try it out !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Perhaps Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme may also be worth testing
