Terre de Bois would work. But its more lemony than bergamot.
hey guys, i've smelled a lot of juice but i don't know if i've smelled anything quite like this yet but I know I want it
it opens like floral bergamont and ozonic like Versace Pour Homme
it settles to a slightly sweet rich musky wood like Abercrombie Fierce with maybe some subtle vanilla
and it has a supporting note of patchouli like YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme
some that i've read about, feel free to suggest them or note similarities

From your list Franck Olivier Sun Java Pour Homme & Millesime Imperial are IMO good ones.
platinum egoiste --> fresh citrusy to woody to musky.. not sure if theres any patchouli
Egoiste is in that realm.
this is a mix of new and old trends, difficult... ozone, vanilla x patchouli, musk... i would put kenzo air for the ozone note and i think yuzu note scents would mimic ozone too. For the bergamot i would put declaration by cartier.
To me it sounds like you pretty much described the notes in Acqua di Gio Essenza.
"The composition begins with luminous tones of cascalone molecule, which captures the olfactory experience of cold and fresh water, sparkling citrusy bergamot and grapefruit. The heart bares floral and aromatic accords of jasmine, basil and sage, as well as explosive floral paradisone molecule, while the base combines notes of patchouli, cedar, vetiver, ambrox, ambergris, pepper and clary sage."
Most worn scents according to my haphazard use of the SOTD...so perhaps my favorites...
1. Epic Man by Amouage (21 wears)
2. M7 by Eves Saint Laurent (18 wears)
3. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (18 wears)
4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (14 wears)
5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (12 wears)
6. Fate Man by Amouage (11 wears)
7. Terre d'Hermes by Hermes (11 wears plus - often not recorded go to scent)
8. Interlude Man by Amouage (11 wears)
9. Journey Man by Amouage (11 wears)
10. Plum Japonais by Tom Ford, Bullion by Byredo, Piper Nigrum by a Lorenzo Villorosi, Pulp by Byredo, Santal Royal by Guerlain (9 wears)
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Maybe Aramis New West. It has calone and bergamot on top with patchouli, wood and musk underneath. No vanilla though, and a bunch of herbs in the middle that you might or might not like.
Calone, Bergamot, Geranium Leaf, Mint
Rosemary, Sage, Oregano, Lavender, Bay Leaf, Nutmeg, Juniper
Patchouli, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Moss, Musk
From your list, I am most familiar with Gendarme and, although I am a huge fan, it doesn't sound like what you are looking for. It's not ozonic and doesn't feature woods or patchouli that I can perceive.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Prada Amber Pour Homme.
Some of the aldehydes used give an ozonic impression. There is some bergamot. I get musk and a hint of vanilla/coumarin/tonka. There is patchouli. A bit barbershoppy like Rive Gauche Pour Homme.
Also try the Intense version.
wow thanks for the feedback guys.
ive smelled some on that list, but never on my skin. Sun Java piqued my interest wit its fragrantica description and packaging. but it seems lesser known and hard to find.
Overall, what I'm looking for I don't think is uncommon. What is that note that gives Fierce A&F that musky almost leathery heart? I think thats what I am mainly looking for, plus maybe a little (and I mean a little) sweet notes for sophistication.
I reference rive gauche for patchoulli, I don't know if it fits with this type of scent, but I do love that damp earthy smell.
i think its plain iso-e that gives fierce that smell, smells kind of like cedar
