    Default Winter daytime scent

    Hey guys, really simple thread here.

    I'm keen to buy a woody spicy winter daytime scent and have came up with a few possibles. I know these are wildly different, but let me know if you have a preference out of my list and feel free to suggest other alternatives. I wear Dior Homme Intense and love it, but think it less a work scent and more a night time fragrance.

    Comme Des Garcons 2 Man
    Costume National Homme
    Cartier Declaration
    Burberry London

    CDG2Man. Royal Oud fits that bill well and there are some good online deals.

    Costume National Homme. Real nice scent, plus it's an eau de parfum, so it has good longevity..

    Comme Des Garcons 2 Man is a good choice, and I'll add Gucci Pour Homme from 2003, made under the direction of Tom Ford; smoky woods and spicy. Getting harder to get hold of, seems Gucci is hell-bent on discontinuing everything Tom Ford had his hands on..

    Yeah, I'd really like to sample Gucci Pour Homme as it is continually compared to CdG2 Man, but can't get a hold of a tester in stores and don't want to blind buy. Sigh.

    London and Code
    For something that's a little sweeter, try Le Male (I'm starting to love this stuff more and more)

    CK Intense Euphoria, spicy, woody, and pretty subtle, if you're looking for a work scent.

    From what you have listed, I'd go with either CdG2Man or Declaration. Along the same lines, maybe check out CdG Wonderwood and Terre d'Hermes. If you have the chance, maybe check out Nasomatto Pardon and Nasomatto Duro.

    From your list go with CDG 2 Man. +1 on Gucci pour homme, and if you cant find it just grab a bottle of Dirty English as they are similar enough. I think CDG 2 Man blows both out of the water though. Also try Hermes Bel Ami as well for a spicy leathery daytime scent.

    Burberry London from the list you mentioned. It's unique and veg well done.

    As for others I'd recommend for woodsy spicy;
    Frapin 1270
    Serge Luten's Chene
    Egoiste
    Dirty English
    Gucci Pour Homme

    Thanks folks. I've tested CdG2 Man and really liked it, but just wanted to seek opinion before buying. Think I'l test out Burberry London first before pulling the trigger.

    Some of my personal favorite spicy/woody ones are:
    Tom Ford Bois Marocain
    Gucci Pour Homme
    Dirty English
    Chanel Egoiste
    Bond No. 9 I Love New York for Marriage Equality
    by Kilian Straight to Heaven
    Dolce & Gabbana The One
    Lubin Idole
    Polo Double Black
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Creed - Green Valley
    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender

    As a fan and admirer of Jean Claude Ellena, Declaration will be my obvious choice. As a spicy scent only for winter, Burburry London is great.
    -But why not check out Annick Goutal Sables and Frapin Caravelle Epicee?
