The notes sound really intriguing. I think licorice is a great note for men, it has both fresh and woody-roasted aspects. There should be more frags with it. I don't know what ravensara is, though: is it more like anisic licorice, or sweet-bitter-woody as real licorice roots? In any case, I feel that the frag should be anchored by this note.
Of the licorice frags I can think of, some go for sweetness, like Eau Noire, which pairs lavender and a licorice note with sweet immortelle. Perhaps you could add immortelle to the base notes? Though myrrh can be sweetish too.
Others go for a drier, smokier note. Something smoky then?
