Thread: tired of smelling sweet
hey folks, i recently noticed most of my fragrances are on the sweet side, not all overly sweet but all either fruit or candy shop style scents. i want to try out a spicy woody or musky scent without the candy like scent. any suggestions?

Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler. It's the ultimate "fresh and clean" fragrance without being boring.
Piper Nigrum by Lorenzo Villoresi; mint and pepper, lots and lots of pepper. Invigorating or suffocating? It's worth trying.
Azzaro pour Homme
YSL Rive Gauche
may all be worth testing
Smelling good on a budget!
Caron Yatagan for dry woods. Also, most vetivers for dry fresh (eg Guerlain Vetiver or Tom Ford Grey Vetiver).
+1 for rive gauche, also f black by ferragamo, and ysl's m7
Le Labo Santal 33
I agree with cacio: Yatagan is the man's cure for sweet. Man up, yataganize!

Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
You need a good musk and patchouli scent like Narciso Rodriguez for him
For Sale or Swap: Terre D'Hermes
+1 on Gucci Pour Homme I
Maybe Dirty English, CdG 2 Man, or Divine L'Homme Sage
FM's French Lover is what you need.
Kenzo Homme Boisee/ Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee. Lovely refreshing woody spring time scents that are absolutely not sweet.
Have a look at CdG Man 2 or Wonderwood.
Alternatively, Histoire de Parfum's Patchouli Noir or perhaps Narciso Rodriguez for him for something a little darker.
