    Look up the reviews, esp those from my fellow Coneheads

    Tam Dao? I get cedar, herbs and Diptyque knows what from that one. Interesting but . . .

    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    It immediately brings back memories of when I used to work in a dusty woodshop restoring antiques. Gucci Pour Homme has a similar dry down as well. They don't really remind me of cutting wood exactly, but more of the smell of old sawdust and woodchips.

    But the fragrance that reminds me most of actually "cutting wood" is by far Dior Fahrenheit. Not cutting wood with an axe, but with a gas-powered chain saw. My Dad used to always go out cutting wood with a chain saw and when he came back inside the freshly cut wood, gasoline, and sweaty musk would all mix together and smell remarkably similar to Fahrenheit. The fist time I smelled Fahrenheit I was convinced my dad used to wear it because it brought back so many memories of him from my childhood. But my mother assures me that he never wore cologne. Now I'm certain it was just the smell of cut wood and gasoline on his skin.

    Tam Dao in my opinion is just sandalwood, i think Noble Cedar by Chopard and Chene is a superb recommendation

    Seems Gucci PH 1 smells much like sawdust. I can't comment but I have started to notice a lot of cedar in Gucci's Envy, so if you are happy with cedar sawdust this could be the one.
