    I recommend Heritage by Guerlain, it's warm, complex, old-school: Lemon, Lavender, Bergamot, Coriander, Pink peppercorn, Patchouli, Cedar, Tonka bean, Vanilla.

    Also Sandalo by Etra, see if you can get a older bottle if possible. It's a woody oriental with cedar, amber and patchouli, with a creamy sandalwood running from top to bottom.

    It's time to calibrate your taste and the only way is to obtain lots of samples or test a lot in the stores to find out what you like and dislike.

    This.... And update the scent ratings in your wardrobe while you are at it. For example, you say you dislike Terre d'Hermès, but rate it 5 stars? Nothing wrong with disliking Terre or anything else, but it makes it difficult to gauge your taste when your ratings seem to be polar opposites to your likes...
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Yes, it doesn't wear well on me. I feel like cedar lined closet. However, I like it on others.
