    Default Looking for a New Fall Fragrance SImiliar to "Penguin"...Any Help Appreciated thanks!

    Hey all. I am very new to fragrances despite being in my mid 20's. My tastes have shifted though, from fresh sporty scents to more musky, slightly sweet scents. I like orientals and I also like woodsy smells.

    Anyhow, my girlfriend and I went shopping for a cologne in fall of 2011, and she LOVED Original Penguin. I also loved it and I am looking for something similiar. I am afraid I might end up buying the same scent but Id like to build up a few scents. 1 million is NOT for me, it is just TOO sweet. Le male is ok, but it is a bit too feminine and too popular for my liking. Any help is appreciated thanks so much!!!

    I am an Original Penguin man myself. Musky ambery woods are what you are looking for, eh?
    Try some of these:
    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille (niche $) -tobacco with dark vanilla (do NOT think le male)
    Burberry London-BN favorite, spices, tobacco and wood
    Frapin Speakeasy (niche)-rum and wood
    Gucci Pour Homme II-wood, spices, and vanilla
    YSL L'Nuit de L'Homme-sweet but not quite cloying
    Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense-amber and musk
    John Varvatos Vintage-boozy wood

    That should get you started

    L'Occitane Eau des Baux is perfect for you.

    Boss Bottled would be a good sniff as well.
