    +1 on the AdP

    Add: -
    Armani Eau pour Homme
    Essenza de Zegna

    I don't know about TdH - I find it lacking in citrus and far too mineralic to be considered a citrus woods.

    Thumbs up to Declaration and TdH - both are worth trying.

    I'm more ambivalent about Terre de Bois. It's certainly citrusy, but the drydown to me is much more a blend of flowers and warm soil. I like it, but if I were expecting "woods" I would be surprised.

    Yes, +1 to this.

    I really admire this bottle from the classic house, Acqua di Parma. It has an edge of modernism in it, as Essenza di Colonia was released in August 2010, but it keeps the wonderful feeling of the gorgeous scents the house created (Colonia was released in 1916).

    A nice blend of old & new:

    For pure modern scents, I will say to try Terre d'Hermes (EdT or the Pure Parfum) but know that it is spiked with Iso E Super. In a contemporary scent, Yardley's Citrus & Wood...great juice and no Iso E Super. People like to compare the two - but they have significant differences in structure.

    For something classic, Vintage YSL Pour Homme (1971) - a timeless scent that captures what Wood and Citrus scents from yesteryear smell like, yet it is timeless.

    Cheers,

    It's a potent synthetic smell - some people (like me) are very sensitive to it and really don't like it, while some people love it.

    Hi Oscroft -

    Thank you. Iso E Super is very notable synthetic molecule that is prevalent in a lot of popular designer fragrances (sometimes in very high quantity). It is an 'intensifier' - here is a great link here on Basenotes: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/217...81#post1383781

    Terre d'Hermes' composition is 55% Iso E Super - which is rather high for any one ingredient is a composition. Ellena, the designer uses it in several of his fragrances (including his earlier release, Cartier Declaration was 40%). Encre Noire, a dark and brooding woody vetiver of note has a high content as well, 45%. That is worth mentioning.

    Personally, I try not to judge fragrances based upon the use of a compound that has changed the face of modern fragrance. It's part of where things have gone, but it has a strong reaction to some people (headache-inducing). I, personally, do not have a negative reaction to it, but realize I prefer how it wears in a moderate application - I am careful not to be too liberal. Touching up a wearing works better versus more at once for me.

    So, my point to put forward was when bringing modern Woody Citrus scents (Terre d'Hermes) into your search...it's relevant to know how fragrances are being created today. The spectrum, as Oscroft mentions is from being very sensitive not liking it to loving it. The key is to sample first...

    Cheers,

    ericrico
